T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray says low-band LTE added to more cell sites


Two days after T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray announced a round of mid-band LTE capacity upgrades, Ray has revealed that T-Mo recently rolled out some low-band LTE upgrades, too.

Ray today confirmed that T-Mobile has added low-band LTE to more cell sites in the past two weeks to improve coverage. As with previous low-band LTE rollouts, this latest round of upgrades includes 600MHz and 700MHz spectrum.

Some of the cities included in this latest batch of upgrades include Truckee, CA; Nampa, ID; Westbrook, ME; and Dallas, TX. As usual, you can find the full list of cities included in these upgrades at the bottom of this post.

    At this rate, it really is only a matter of time…

  • riverhorse

    Yes, and we won’t stop. Buutttt.. . where are the phones for this?

    • wyn50

      Yep, they need the next iPhone to compatible with these low bands!

      • yankeesusa

        T-mobile wanted the iPhone to have this but apple said they want this tech to be more available… Or in other words.. let’s force our customers to pay more later on. Only reason that note 8 didn’t have it is because they were already in production.

      • SirStephenH

        Good luck with that. Apple’s always been a couple of years behind in cellular technologies.

    • yankeesusa

      Lgv30, s8 active, s9 and more coming. All those do this band.

      • SirStephenH

        The K30 was recently announced.

    • SirStephenH

      The V30, V30+, V30S, K30, S8 Active, S9 and S9+ currently support all bands.

      The G7 is being released very soon with full band support.

      The LG Aristo 2, Moto Z3 Play, Moto E5 Play, Moto E5 Plus, and Moto G6 Plus have recently completed FCC certification and will have full band support.

      There are many more to come that are in currently in the pipeline.

    West TN needs an improvement. Between Nashville and Jackson.

  • Keith

    Incredible. Nice to see deployment with such speed!

  • eanfoso

    Indianapolis has been fine, go down 37 you’re out of service for 20 minutes then picks back up then gone after bloomington, help!

    • John Mills

      You need Band 12 Phone south of Indy. I had no problems with my MOTO X Pure south of Indy on Highway #37 until just south of bloomington, I lost the signal for about 5-8 miles then got it back on band 12 700mhz.

  • Taurolyon

    Upstate NY! Service is abysmal. I’m tired of seeing 1 bar of LTE and 3 bars of “emergency only” service

    • dontsh00tmesanta

      Can’t switch carriers?

      • Taurolyon

        Sure I could, if I wanted to go back to big red, which I don’t. I love my T-Mobile plan, the service doesn’t love me.

    • James Smith

      Verizon works great in upstate NY. Where specifically in Upstate NY is T-Mobile sucking for you?

      • Taurolyon

        Pretty much anywhere south of the I-90, specifically the Bennington-Attica area.

  • Keith

    How do we find out where the sites are? I use cellmapper on a Samsung S8 Sctive. I have multiple sites in cities I travel to. I’ve yet to see band 71. Band 12 is everywhere.

  • dontsh00tmesanta

    So madera has 10×10 700mhz now?
