PTel Mobile announced today that 4G LTE data is now available on the following plans at no extra charge:
- $50 Unlimited Everything
- $40 Unlimited Everything
- $1.50 Daily Unlimited
- Real PayGo
Update: a couple hours after I wrote this LTE popped up on PTel PayGo phone without me ever contacting PTel. LTE is also available now on PTel's sub-brand GIV Mobile.
T-Mobile's LTE is roughly twice as fast as its 4G HSPA+. PTEL is claiming download speeds of 10-20 Mbps, which are typical of the average LTE speeds achieved by T-Mobile customers. Maximum speeds of up to 60Mbps have been reported on T-Mobile itself. If you are getting LTE on your PTel account and happen to run a speed test, please share the results in a comment.
