Leap's LTE Network to Launch Starting Next Week
Leap Wireless is prepared to officially launch its first LTE market at some point next week. The first market has yet to be named, but it will be followed by others in November and December. The company plans to cover 21 million POPs with LTE by the end of this year, and two-thirds of its current CDMA network footprint by the end of 2015. The company has been testing LTE in Tucson, Ariz. As in Tucson, the only LTE device available in the launch market will be a Huawei-made mobile hotspot. Leap has not said when LTE-capable phones will become available.
