Extended Range LTE uses 700MHz spectrum to push T-Mobile’s LTE coverage over farther distances that its other LTE airwaves, and it’s also better at penetrating buildings. With T-Mobile’s goal of having Extended Range LTE in more than 350 markets by year’s end, it’s not a surprise to see an aggressive rollout of the service, but it’s still pretty exciting.
