MetroPCS lights up LTE in Dallas
MetroPCS today launched its LTE services in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, with monthly plans starting at $55. Consumers will be able to access the service with the LTE-enabled Samsung Craft, which sells for $299 after a two-year contract.
The launch follows MetroPCS' recent launch of LTE in Las Vegas, and the company promises additional major metropolitan areas to follow later this year and in early 2011.
"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 Linquist, president, CEO and chairman of MetroPCS.
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.
The Dallas/Forth Worth LTE network will cover the majority of MetroPCS' existing CDMA network footprint in the area.
