We don’t often see T-Mobile make official announcements when it lights up 700MHz coverage in new markets, but today Magenta made an exception.
T-Mobile says that its Extended Range LTE, aka 700MHz spectrum, is now live in Miami, Fla., as well as several other Florida locales:
Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Coral Springs, Davie, Deerfield Beach, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hialeah, Hollywood, Homestead, Jupiter, Kendall, Key West, Lehigh Acres, Miami Gardens, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Pompano Beach, Port St Lucie, Sunrise, Wellington, West Palm Beach, and Weston
700MHz coverage travels well over long distances and also has solid building penetration, which is why T-Mobile is so jacked to have the service live in a major market like Miami. T-Mo recently said that its Extended Range LTE service is now live in 170 markets and that that number is expected to surpass 350 by the end of the year. Now Legere and Co. are one step closer to that goal with the launch of 700MHz coverage in Miami.
