MetroPCS Launches LTE in Dallas/Fort Worth

MetroPCS Communications launched commercial LTE service in its second market -- the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (DFW). LTE service in Las Vegas began earlier this month.

The MetroPCS LTE network in Dallas was supplied by Ericsson.

MetroPCS is selling the Samsung Craft 4G handset as its first LTE device. MetroPCS offers monthly 4G LTE service plans for $55 or $60, which include talk, text and a 4G Web experience initially on an unlimited basis.

"MetroPCS will continue to expand 4G LTE network coverage into all of our markets through 2011 to offer unmatched value in 4G LTE services on a no-contract basis for all of our customers," said Roger D. Linquist, president, CEO and chairman of MetroPCS. "The launch of our 4G LTE network in the metroplex is yet another milestone in our expansion and our vision of the Internet going mobile."http://www.metropcs.com
