    I came across something odd today and thought I would post it here.

    I know there is no MetroPCS network here, but today I noticed a new (or previously unnoticed by me) MetroPCS store.

    Does anyone know if there are plans for MetroPCS to build some sort of network here?

    Or is there some way that this MetroPCS store sells phones for business travellers to the nearby Dallas market or something?

    MetroPCS will probably start rolling out service in the new areas it acquired a 1700 MHz AWS license for. According to PhoneScoop's map, you're in such an area. They bought the license to cover Dallas, so I'm sure that's the focus, but maybe they'll cover your area too?

    Yes MetroPCS is building that network here. No word on when the launch date is though. If what you saw was true. Then common sense says that its about a few months away. and MetroPCS is coming to Philly before the end of this year.

    I am sure Dallas and Shreveport, LA markets will be connected.

    Ok, well thats something that I wasn't even aware of. Well, I'll keep an eye on that and see maybe when MetroPCS opens that store or something.

    Also, a couple weeks ago I did see a new set of panels being added to a cell site. Wheter thats related or not, who knows.

    They are definitely coming here.

    Here is an article that I found online:

    MetroPCS expands to Shreveport-Bossier City - Dallas Business Journal:
    MetroPCS expands to Shreveport-Bossier City

    .. I've already seen 4 of their retail stores. They will have a lot of stores here than Verizon or Sprint has, and definitely more than T-Mobile (there are no T-mobile outlets here).

    Metro has been here in LA for a while now but I have yet to talk to anyone who actually uses them.

    Larry I know of two people there that have them there. I have heard coverage still is not good it is getting better and that there really is not to many problems so far.

    Yeah, once they are established, I want to check into it just to see how they operate.
