  • HOW A SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH OF METRO PCS’ FIRST LTE PHONE COULD AFFECT THE ENTIRE SYSTEM 0 comments
    Aug 23, 2010 3:26 PM | about stocks: TMUS, S
    There has been a lot of buzz around leaked photos of a Samsung Craft, which could be the first LTE compatible phone to hit the US market. By utilizing LTE technology the Epic could be one of only three phones in the market capable of 4G speeds. If the Epic is successful in Metro PCS’ pilot markets, Los Vega and Dallas-Fort Worth, it could affect mobile broadband users all over the country.


    Metro PCS currently offers some of the most aggressively priced voice and data plans in the country. If they are able to get a jump could start in the 4G market, they could push other major carriers to develop 4G technology and infrastructure of their own.  Currently Sprint is the only carrier offering 4G plans, which utilize WiMAX technology instead of LTE. If Metro PCS is able to move into this market ahead of AT&T and Verizon, it could accelerate the downward trend in data plan pricing, all the while forcing those companies to invest more heavily in their own high-speed infrastructure.
