According to Richard Lawler over at Engadget AT&T is adding iPhone, 4G LTE / HSPA+ support to GoPhone starting May 24th. This might mean that I can finally use my iPhone 5 to get blazing LTE speeds and well as the cost savings of prepaid service. Since I started paying for my own cell service, I have been through AT&T, T-Mobile(prepaid), and Net 1o. I have also set up a few people on Straight Talk as well. I reasonable happy with Net10 right now, but if I can get LTE now, I just may switch.
T-Mobile has been doing a reasonable job updating their network and with wireless spectrum from both AT&T and the Metro PCS acquisition they have been building out there 4G HSPDA and LTE networks including support for the iPhone 5. While they are making improvements in the Boston area, my town still seems to only get 3G Edge support on my iPhone.
I am going to try out GoPhone soon and write some posts or a guide for the site. I stopped at the AT&T store and picked up a free GoPhone nano SIM for my iPhone 5. I can sign up and activate the SIM online from the convenience of my home when I am ready.
Are you interested in AT&T ‘s GoPhone service if you can get 4G LTE? Leave a comment and let me know.
