While T-Mobile is more than a bit late to the LTE game, the company confirmed on Monday that their new network would be launching by the end of the month. Where it would launch, however, was kept under wraps. That’s the idea, at least. Thanks to some data mined out of a third-party app, we’ve got a pretty good idea where T-Mobile is starting to fire things up. When the guys over at OpenSignal noticed what seemed to be a bunch of engineers using OpenSignal’s signal analysis/mapping app to test a network they’d never seen before, they followed the data on down the rabbit hole. As of Friday morning, they’ve found T-Mobile’s LTE network being tested in 8 major cities: San Jose (and a few other nearby Bay Area regions), Seattle, Denver, Las Vegas, New Orleans, New York, San Diego and Kansas City.
