T-Mobile today said that it will continue up upgrade its HSPA+ network, which hit 21Mbps last year and will reach 42Mbps this year, before moving to Long Term Evolution. T-Mobile executives explained that it will consider LTE "once devices are readily available and once device quality is on par" with what T-Mobile already offers for HSPA+. The company cautioned, "that will probably not be for a few years." In the meantime, T-Mobile is considering how best to deploy LTE. "Deutsche Telekom is exploring various options to acquire additional spectrum and reduce the gap regarding economies of scale compared with its larger competitors, including partnering with other companies," T-Mobile said in a statement. Verizon Wireless launched LTE in December, and AT&T is planning to launch LTE in mid 2011.
