    their goal was 100 million by June 30 and 200 million by year end.

    Look like they have over delivered.



    LTE: 157 million
    HSPA+: 228 million

    HSPA+ 1900Mhz refarming for iphone and other devices: 142 million (back in May 2013)


    It also has the cheapest plan among the 4 carriers. Things are looking up for the carrier.


    Line 1: $50 -------------(unlimited talk, unlimited text, 500MB of 4G speed)
    Line 2: +$30 --------------(unlimited talk, unlimited text, 500MB of 4G speed)
    Line 3: +$10---------------(unlimited talk, unlimited text, 500MB of 4G speed)
    Line 4: +$10---------------(unlimited talk, unlimited text, 500MB of 4G speed)

    $100 for 4 lines

    T-Mobile flagship prepaid carrier is now MetroPCS, especially since T-Mobile will expand Metro PCS to many more markets in the next few months.

    MetroPCS rate plan:

    $40 a month: unlimited talk, unlimited text, 500MB of 4G LTE speed, unlimited 2G
    $50 a month: unlimited talk, unlimited text, 2.5GB of 4G LTE speed, unlimited 2G
    $60 a month: unlimited talk, unlimited text, unlimited 4G LTE speed

    additional lines get $5 off.

    1 or 2 lines: MetroPCS is cheaper
    3 lines or more: T-Mobile is cheaper

    116 areas in 4 months is pretty impressive. All they really need to do is replace all their Edge with 3G/4G and Att and Verizon are in trouble, but I doubt that will happen.

    That is all that I want them to do at this point. Just get rid of the Edge.

    It's impressive. They've pretty much caught up with Sprint already and the rate at which they've rolled it out was even faster than both AT&T and Sprint.

    I agree they need to attack the Edge along interstates after LTE is done.

    Before spending all that money on LTE rollout, maybe they should worry about upgrading all that EDGE. Their HSPA network works faster then Sprint's LTE already. They need LTE much less than Sprint or VZW right now.

    I think this just shows how pathetic Sprint is. If a small carrier can deploy so fast and get the back haul in place, there is no reason why Sprint can't get it done just as fast either.

    116 market count is BS. Separating Boston and Cambridge? Are they serious?



    They're pulling a Sprint by launching markets half baked and proudly proclaiming how much LTE they have. Great example is Boston. You barely get on LTE. Just like their reframed PCS HSPA, which is also spotty.

    To those who want tmobile to upgrade their edge towers it will not happen till at least 2015, tmobile is spending basically all their money on LTE and network modernization I'm big cities, they can't use their left over money on upgrading edge towers because they need their money to bid in the 600mhz spectrum auction.
