Default News from tmobile tech

Here's some news. Talked to a tech today for awhile resolving an account issue. During our conversation I asked about deployment plans. Here is the top five things they said they're doing:
1. Rolling out LTE upgrades to current 4g towers. Which may cause temporary service loss of data.
2. Upgrading all towers along the interstate system in their current footprint to hspa and to LTE in larger cities with 4g already deployed.
3. LTE will roll out in large cities with 4g first that have completed upgrades.
4. Metropcs lte towers may be given greenlight for us to roam on until the switchover (which is contrary to previous statements)
5. Acquire more 1900mhz and AWS spectrum for more buildouts of hspa and LTE.

They're also looking at possibly doing unlimited data with tether soon. But no word on pricing or availability.

No clue. I'm just repeating what the tech told me.

Im here at the one of the tmobile store in california. A regional manager is here today at the store. I ask him if our note 2 will need any update to use the new lte services when it out. He said no! He told me there actually installing lte towers right now in la and oc county! No wonder my service is been off and on today! Just did a speedtest and wow its getting faster and faster! !!

Same here in San Jose CA. I assumed its due to towers being upgraded. Download speeds have gone down but upload has gone up slightly. I was a bit concerned but I figured its due to some upgrades their doing. Hope my download speeds picks back up.
