T-Mobile upgrades its 4G network for Spokane, Kootenai County customers

This week, T-Mobile announced it's upgraded and unleashed a new, more robust 4G service for Spokane-area customers. Last week Verizon Wireless also released a 4G upgrade for area subscribers.

Here's part of the release from T-Mobile:

Today, T-Mobile announced it is doubling the speed of its 4G network in the Spokane area, providing customers with increased capacity, reliability and even more consistent, faster speeds.

T-Mobile currently offers more than a dozen 4G-capable devices spanning smartphones, tablets and mobile broadband products that will benefit from America’s Largest 4G Network™. The company has seen average download speeds approaching 10Mbps with peak speeds of 27Mbps on the T-Mobile Rocket 3.0 laptop stick—the company’s first 42Mbps device.

The map of the upgrade includes a wide range of the city, including Riverfront Park, SFCC, Gonzaga University, Riverside State Park, Spokane Fairgrounds, Avista, downtown, and the Spokane Arena.

Notably, the upgrade also includes Post Falls and Coeur d'Alene.

Anyone in Sandpoint a T-Mobile customer who can see if the upgrade has occurred there, as well?

Meanwhile: federal regulators are still quietly looking at the proposed acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T. No news recently on which way the winds are blowing on that topic.
