T-Mobile USA CEO Philip Humm indicated that the company will eventually transition its cellular data network to Long Term Evolution 4G, though it doesn't see the need to make that move immediately. Speaking to AllThingsD, Humm explained, "LTE has the advantage on the long haul; it is more effective spectrum utilization. That’s only something which will help (over) the long haul. You are talking about maybe in three, four five years. We're not against LTE. We will over time evolve to LTE. We just don’t see a need to move there very fast." He said that the company currently doesn't have the spectrum it needs for LTE, but believe that will change over time. Humm also noted that the company is going to move forward with its value plans and hopes to appeal to customers looking for the best service for the dollar.

I don't see--

--how not having the spectrum for LTE will change over time.

But, whatever--HSPA+ is plenty fast. And they're expanding this coverage very quickly.
