T-Mobile launches LTE in Puerto Rico

18 Jul 2013

T-Mobile Puerto Rico has announced the commercial launch of its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband network, which it claims to cover more than two million Puerto Ricans – or over half of the island’s population. At launch the cellco said the new 4G network covers San Juan, Bayamon, Caguas, Carolina, Ponce, Mayaguez, Guaynabo, Catano and Trujillo Alto. As well as promising mobile data speeds twice that of its existing DC-HSPA+ services, T-Mobile Puerto Rico claims that it offers faster LTE services than rival AT&T Puerto Rico’s LTE network. Additionally, the German-backed cellco (a direct subsidiary of T-Mobile US) said it expanded its network coverage with 23 new cell sites in densely populated municipalities on the island to increase capacity for better quality user connections.
