T-Mobile rolls out mid-band LTE capacity upgrades to hundreds of cell sites

A couple of weeks after T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray announced T-Mo’s last round of mid-band LTE network upgrades, another batch of upgrades have been confirmed.

Ray took to Twitter today to say that T-Mobile has upgraded hundreds of cell sites with more mid-band LTE capacity in the last two weeks. These include both AWS and PCS spectrum upgrades.

Included in this latest round of mid-band LTE capacity upgrades are markets like Washington, DC; Spirit Lake, IA; Detroit, MI; and Norfolk, VA. You can find the full list of cities and towns included in this latest batch of upgrades below.

    No upgrades in Alabama or Tennessee? Just everywhere else.

    • Red

      Not Texas.

    • Steven

      They did this to Alabama months ago. Unfortunately this isn’t a footprint improvement though, this is just bandwidth improvement. I’m still waiting on the 600mhz to take affect in the Mobile area. Oh, and the Revvl to be updated to handle 600mhz too.

    • SirStephenH

      “No upgrades in Alabama or Tennessee? Just everywhere else.”

      Only 26 states and territories (24 states plus Puerto Rico and D.C.) are included,
      some with only one or two cities. So no, it’s not “just everywhere else”.

  • James Smith

    Same announcement, same shitty coverage.

    • Trevnerdio

      Don’t cut yourself on all that edge (no pun intended). Maybe try to be happy that T-Mobile is improving your coverage, whether you personally verify it or not?

  • SirStephenH

    Looks like most of this is simply T-Mobile merging iWireless’ assets into its network.

    • James Smith

      Anything for a press release

    • superg05

      i think i wireless was using there network

      • SirStephenH

        iWireless had their own network but also had a mutual roaming agreement with T-Mobile. T-Mobile didn’t have a very large footprint in Iowa and relied heavily on iWireless in the state, something this merger is supposed to resolve. Assets still need to be merged.

    They just added 10MHz of band 2 to the tower near me, and it’s not on the list.

    • Sharti24

      Is the tower still broadcasting 4G HSPA?

  • Kasaan Rivers

    This is bullshit. They didnt upgrade anything. All they did was took spectrum from band 2 which was 10×10 and not its 5×5 and put it into band 4 in nyc long island city and Astoria. How is considered a upgrade?

    • SirStephenH

      Bands 2 and 4 are completely different, you can’t just take spectrum from one to add the other. You’re probably thinking of refarming. This is where they take spectrum from the wasteful 3g (UMTS and HSPA+) and set it up for use with the highly effecient LTE. This makes a far more effecient use of the spectrum and adds speed and capacity to the network as a whole, so yes, this IS an upgrade.

      • bkat11

        He might be thinking what some think in Tampa FL. They have a 10×10 mhz block in Tampa and another 5×5 block not continuous though so maybe he’s connecting to the 5×5 because its a lower frequency than the 10×10 block? It’s confusing but bottom line is Tampa actually have 15 mhz of band 2 that they aggregate
