T-Mobile plans to push forward with its HSPA+ network for the next several years. However, like AT&T, the nation's fourth-largest carrier will look to switch its 4G network to an LTE-based network, TmoNews reports. The LTE rollout would be capped for data while T-Mobile would continue to use its HSPA+ network for voice.
T-Mobile parent Deutsche Telekom plans to add $3 billion to sales of its U.S. subsidiary by 2014 and is considering partnerships to acquire the spectrum for an LTE network, which may cost between $1 billion and $2 billion, Bloomberg reports. The company has declined to name potential partners.
