Network to introduce fast 4G connectivity.Wireless carrier T-Mobile may be gearing up to launch its new 4G LTE network at the end of this month, as signs of a New York City event being planned point to something big.

On March 26th, the carrier plans to announce changes to its service plans, and it is widely speculated that it will unveil the new fast data network at that time as well. The timing is perfect for a launch event, as T-Mobile plans to offer Blackberry’s Z10 and the Samsung Galaxy Note II as the first handsets on the network that offer support for 4G. The company hopes that 4G will service around 100 million subscribers by this summer.

The new plans that T-Mobile will roll out will likely include a $50 option that gives users unlimited phone minutes and texting, as well as a 500MB data allowance. For an additional $20 T-Mobile will add unlimited data as well, or users can choose to get 2GB of data for a flat fee of $10. The carrier will also roll out a family plan that begins at $80 for two lines.
