T-Mobile said its LTE 4G network now reaches 300 million Americans, a significant milestone for the Uncarrier. The company says it is ahead of schedule, and will add coverage to one million square miles this year. For example, the carrier recently lit up Missoula, Kalispell, Butte, Helena, and Anaconda, Montana, and plans to light up many more cities around the country. The company has long been playing a game of coverage catch-up with larger rivals AT&T and Verizon Wireless, both of which cover more than 310 million people with their LTE networks. T-Mobile recently reported quarterly earnings, and recorded 2.3 million new connections, with 1.1 million new post-paid customers. The company generated revenue of about $1.9 billion and a net profit of $138 million.

Where in Montana??

Man was I stoked when I read this!! I'm in Helena, Montana and been gouged for years. Looked up my address in the middle of the city limits of Helena, Montana's capital...... and nothing. The coverage map still shows all roaming. Literally, not one square mile of Montana is covered yet. What gives with this announcement TMO???
You have to give them time to update their maps and systems.

Looks like the coverage is not updated yet. But rest assured as this is up and running, you will be able to receive 4G/LTE.

I highly doubt this means T-Mobile is now in Montana, and thats because AT&T is barely in Montana and Sprint isn't at all. T-Mobile has been focusing on LTE, and probably has been expanding its current network, and at the moment not going into new mar...

Have you not been outside of Montana? If you have, and you hit an LTE coverage spot, I'm pretty sure you would be included in this figure. That's why these announcements are stupid and misleading.

They are also going to buy more band 12 licenses!

They announced in the earnings call that they are buying the old Cox 700Mhz licenses. This means band 12 will be coming to Phoenix, San Diego, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Norfolk and other cities.
