Exclusive: T-Mobile’s HTC One to launch with LTE support

Exclusive: T-Mobile’s HTC One to launch with LTE support

A few hours ago, we revealed that the HTC One (formerly known as the HTC M7) would be making its retail debut in the U.S. at T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T stores on March 22nd for $199.99 (32GB) and $299 (64GB).  While the retail date and pricing details for the HTC One are nice, T-Mobile customers were left wondering if the new flagship phone from HTC would include support for T-Mobile’s LTE network. Fortunately, a trusted source gave us the answer that many of you were hoping for.

Our source claims that the T-Mobile HTC One will ship with support for T-Mobile’s LTE network. At the moment, T-Mobile’s LTE network is being tested in Las Vegas and Kansas City, but T-Mobile is expecting to have over 100 million people covered with LTE by the summer, with the total number reaching 200 million by the end of the year.

At this point, it hard to say if the HTC One will be T-Mobile’s first LTE device. According to TmoNews, the Blackberry Z10 is expected to land in T-Mobile stores in mid-March,  but the rumored date of March 27th does come after the expected retail availability of the HTC One. T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note II is capable of supporting T-Mobile’s LTE network; a system update must be pushed out to these device in order to enable the functionality.

    T-Mobile still hasn’t released their LTE network here in Denver, but it’s nice to know that my HTC One will be able to run on it once it arrives. With how fast I’ve seen LTE can be, I know it’ll be worth the wait. A few weekends ago, I went on a small holiday from work at DISH and got to try out the new LTE network in Vegas. During my trip, I was able to keep up with my shows by using the DISH Anywhere app on my phone and as a result of using LTE, streaming quality was fantastic.
