    It seems like it is some of the same cities.

  • David VanHouse

    I drove all around woodbridge, including the deadspots, in hopes of seeing Band 71 coverage on my G7, i couldnt find anything.

    • Cam Fas

      That will change in 12-18 months. I can’t wait for E and HSPA+ to also go away in that timeframe so all spectrum can be used for LTE not even concerned about 5G

      • SirStephenH

        Unfortunately 2g (EDGE) and 3g (UMTS, HSPA+) will probably only be shut down in order to deploy 5g.

        • none

          Hopefully, I can get some kind of a Micro-Cell so that when 2G and UMTS go away entirely, my old phones will still be useful(I still have my collection of old phones, they still work and are perfectly usable in 2018 other than the fact that they all are on WM6.5, and most only support 2G EDGE and 3G on AWS, even over 2G they still work for phone calls, text messages, and basic web browsing although the 9-year old Opera 9.7 browser struggles to put together modern pages even though it’s using an Opera compression server).

  • JC

    when this says midband spectrum does anyone know which frequency this refers to?

    • Carlos Jimenez

      They are referring to band 4, band 66 and band 2.

      • JC

        All of which would be accessible from my iPhone correct?

        • SirStephenH

          Yes for bands 2 and 4. Band 66 is only available on the iPhone 8 and above.

  • vrm

    Since tmobile always had pcs and aws spectrum even before they acquired bands 12 and 71, I wonder what was deployed on these sites before these upgrades.

    • SirStephenH

      PCS and AWS. This is adding capacity, not deploying new bands.

  • SirStephenH

    I haven’t see Washington pop up that often in these announcements which is strange considering T-Mobile’s headquartered here. ☹️

    Still, it’s good to see that they’re not standing still.
