T-Mobile has been testing its up-and-coming 4G LTE network across the US lately. According to Open Signal, T-Mobile’s new network has been spotted in at least nine cities:
- New York
- Las Vegas
- San Francisco
- San Jose
- New Orleans
- San Diego
- Kansas City
Here’s some additional information from CNET:
In addition to seeing the network tested on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the OpenSignal Android app also logged testing from Samsung’s Galaxy S3 and newly-announced (but unreleased) Galaxy S4. In addition, BlackBerry’s Z10 will also support the new 4G LTE standards.
Although OpenSignal logged speeds around 25Mbps down and 8Mbps up, and a 40ms latency, these numbers were collected from a small sample on a network that’s still under development, and should be taken with a grain of salt.
You can’t test your apps on the new network yet, but it’s coming along, so start preparing for another round of in-the-wild testing. Once T-Mobile’s 4G LTE does launch you’ll want to make sure everything runs smoothly.
