T-Mobile announces more mid-band LTE upgrades
T-Mobile has declared another bunch of redesigns of mid-band LTE limit.
The news comes two weeks after a comparable declaration from CTO Neville Ray.
“100s of destinations were redesigned with more midband limit in simply the most recent two weeks and #WeWontStop!” Ray tweets.
The urban areas accepting redesigns incorporate New York; Phoenix; Indianapolis; Austin, Texas; and Washington, D.C.
the rollout includes low-band 600MHz and 700MHz and mid-band PCS and AWS coverage. Ray also said that more work on 600MHz coverage for spotty areas would be “coming.” This rollout essentially means T-Mobile is shoring up its low-to-middle band areas to get better overall signals in those places, with the focus on getting existing speeds to be more reliable.
T-Mobile has previously indicated that it plans to launch its 5G network in 30 cities this year, though we’ll have to wait until 2019 before we see phones that support 5G on the T-Mobile network.
