At an event in San Jose today, Qualcomm Technologies company, partnered with T-Mobile, demonstrated their latest step in the evolution of LTE. T-Mobile announced that LTE Advanced, which is the newest generation, and supported by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Gigabit LTE modems, is now live in 430 markets.
T-Mobile is the 3rd largest U.S. wireless carrier behind Verizon and AT&T. Owned by German parent company, Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile has been using its “Uncarrier” marketing campaign to grow its market share since 2013.
With what seems like a good amount of success over the past few years, T-Mobile continues to announce new initiatives like discounted plans for seniors, Netflix included with service, and pushing competitors to bring back unlimited data plans.
Most recently, T-Mobile has been in talks with Sprint about a possible merger, although the latest news suggests SoftBank may kill the deal.
