First 4G Network in the US
On October 5, 2010, in GSM, News, by PGSAdmin
Sept 21st, 2010: MetroPCS has launched the first 4G LTE service in the United States as well as the world’s first commercially available 4G LTE enabled handset, the Samsung Craft.
Service began in Las Vegas, NV and will be spreading to other MetroPCS cities throughout the year.
While many carriers are moving in the direction of 4G, most of those networks actual parameters only fall under “3.9G” which means they are the next step towards 4G, falling just short of actually being 4G. What makes this jump in technology significant is that MetroPCS has completely skipped over 3G and opened 4G coverage to those who purchase the Samsung Craft, the only 2G/4G phone.
