MetroPCS to launch 4G LTE network late in 2010

Wireless provider MetroPCS on Tuesday announced some details on its upcoming high-speed 4G LTE mobile broadband network. Due for a release in the second half of 2010, MetroPCS will partner with Ericsson and Samsung to power the provider's 4G LTE service. Along with the service, which will be released thanks to Ericsson infrastructure, MetroPCS plans on launching a dual-mode LTE/CDMA smartphone built by Samsung in the major cities that MetroPCS offers its service late in 2010.

Like it has done with its wireless phones, MetroPCS will encourage its users to stop using wireline services in favor of wireless options. No details are known about the Samsung LTE handset, other than that it will offer a full broadband Internet experience.

MetroPCS offers contract-free monthly plans that are all-inclusive, without any overage fees.
