Spokane, Washington – December 3, 2014 – On the heels of recent LTE upgrades across the U.S., T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) today announced that Wideband LTE has arrived in the greater Spokane, WA area. Already the fastest major national wireless carrier in the area, T-Mobile has made mobile speeds even faster in Spokane by upgrading its LTE network to Wideband LTE, bringing up to a 50% increase in mobile speeds to LTE customers.
