T-Mobile’s in Las Vegas (we are for CES) but for a totally different reason. During Citi Global’s business conference recently, T-Mobile’s chief technology officer Neville Ray said the carrier is preparing to activate its 4G LTE network right here.

Hmm, we wonder if maybe T-Mobile was hoping to have it active for CES in order to let everyone see how fast it is… or maybe, just maybe, it held off on purpose so that it’s not slammed the second it goes live.

In any case, the news comes compliments of TmoNews, which said T-Mobile plans to light up 4G LTE in just two to three weeks time.
