MetroPCS Launches LTE in Los Angeles, Philadelphia

MetroPCS Communications launched commercial LTE service in its fourth and fifth markets -- Los Angeles and Philadelphia. The company previously launched LTE in Detroit, the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (DFW) and Las Vegas.

"As the only no annual contract, pay-in-advance service provider offering 4G LTE services, we are building on the successful commercial launches of 4G LTE service in Las Vegas, Dallas/Fort Worth and Detroit with the launches of our 4G LTE service in Los Angeles and Philadelphia. With a compelling handset line-up and a superior network, we deliver unmatched value with the flexibility, predictability and affordability that consumers demand," said Roger D. Linquist, chairman, president and CEO of MetroPCS.

MetroPCS intends to expand its 4G services into additional major metropolitan areas later this year and into early 2011, including Atlanta, Boston, Jacksonville, Miami, New York, Orlando, Sacramento, San Francisco and Tampa.

In addition, MetroPCS began offering a nationwide plan covering 90% of U.S. markets. Customers can get unlimited talk, text and Web services wherever they go in the nation on their existing MetroPCS service plan.
