T-Mobile has announced that they now offer 4G LTE coverage in a total of 154 markets across the U.S. This is just behind Sprint that just announced that they’ve got 185 markets covered with 4G LTE. The latest launch by T-Mobile allows them to cover about 180 million POPs up from the previous 157 million POPs back in July. Their goal is to offer 4G LTE to 200 markets by the end of 2013 covering about 200 million POPs with LTE service. The latest launch puts them in fourth place with LTE coverage, Sprint in third, AT&T in second and Verizon in first with over 500 markets that offer 4G LTE service. Customers in 4G LTE areas can expect to see around 5-12Mbps download and 2-5Mbps upload with many customers reporting substantially faster speeds!
