T-Mobile USA Targeting 2013 for LTE Launch
T-Mobile USA today reported its 2011 fourth quarter and full year earnings and said that it will launch an LTE 4G network starting in 2013.

It also said that it will revitalize its role as a challenger to larger rivals with competitive device and service offerings. T-Mobile saw its revenue drop 3.3% during the quarter to $20.6 billion. Total churn increased from 3.5% to 4.0% and the company lost a total of 802,000 customers during the fourth quarter. Its total customer base at the end of 2011 — including both post/pre-paid — was 33.2 million.
