T-Mobile now has LTE in 73 out of top 100 U.S. markets

T-Mobile U.S. LTE Footprint

T-Mobile executives engaged in some chest-beating on Wednesday when they announced that they’ve now launched LTE services in 116 metropolitan areas in the United States, including 73 out of the top 100 metro areas in the country. The company took particular joy in bashing rival Sprint, which T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray mocked for purportedly only having LTE services running in 22 of the top 100 U.S. markets. T-Mobile CEO John Legere also got in on the fun and said that “Sprint has missed every possible deadline” while deploying its LTE services. T-Mobile’s network now covers approximately 157 million PoPs in the U.S. and the company easily beat its own goal for covering 100 million U.S. PoPs by the start of July.
