T-Mobile today said it has migrated the majority of MetroPCS customers off the company's legacy CDMA network and onto its own LTE network. T-Mobile says fewer than 500,000 MetroPCS customers are still using the CDMA network. As a result, the company decommissioned MetroPCS' CDMA network in Atlanta and Detroit during the first quarter of the year, bringing the overall total to 8 market shutdowns, with only 3 major markets left. T-Mobile expects to shut down these remaining MetroPCS CDMA networks by the end of the year. T-Mobile has already refarmed approximately 80% of MetroPCS' spectrum for its 4G service. Speaking of which, T-Mobile today said its LTE network covers 275 million people and it expects to reach its goal of 300 million by the end of the year. T-Mobile has aggressively rolled out Wideband LTE service to 157 markets, and expects to cover 200 markets with Wideband LTE by the end of the year. Further, the Uncarrier continues to deploy LTE on its 700MHz spectrum. It added 700MHz coverage in Houston, Dallas, Philadelphia, Tampa, San Antonio, and Detroit during the first quarter, bringing the total coverage to 55 market areas. Last, T-Mobile says its winnings in the recent AWS-3 spectrum auction gave it licenses covering 97 million people.
