Fierce Wireless has revealed that T-Mobile USA will launch its inaugural Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in Las Vegas within a matter of days. The mobile operator originally planned to introduce the 4G technology last week during the city’s annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), only for a series of ‘last-minute tweaks’ to derail the plan. Speaking on the sidelines of the conference, T-Mobile chief technology officer Neville Ray said that the Las Vegas market ‘is coming on real fast’. He added that the Las Vegas launch is likely to be followed by a switch-on in Kansas City, potentially following in the footsteps of the company’s 1900MHz HSPA+ launches last year. T-Mobile launched its HSPA+ network in Las Vegas, followed by Kansas City, Baltimore, Houston and Washington, DC.
