T-Mobile upgrades more cell sites with additional mid-band LTE capacity


One week after T-Mobile announced a low-band LTE expansion, it’s confirmed a round of mid-band LTE upgrades, too.

T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray says that T-Mo has upgraded hundreds of cell sites with mid-band LTE capacity in the last two weeks. These upgrades include both PCS and AWS spectrum.

Some of the cities included in this latest round of mid-band LTE upgrades include Oakland, CA; Sarasota, FL; Portland, ME; and Cedar Falls, IA. As usual, you can find the full list of markets included with these upgrades below.

    No Utah love this time, that’s OK, we’ve had some good upgrades lately. Glad TMo is doing this.

  • Jay Holm

    So Houston is listed, but not Baytown, hmm…

  • SirStephenH

    And a quarter of them appear to be simply the merging of iWireless into T-Mobile.

  • Phil7474

    Houston on the list for the 20th time. I already get speeds over 100 Mbps where I live on the Northside.

  • Omar Boyer

    TMobile adding capacity here and there. Y Verizon pa cuando ? It’s so overloaded here in Los Angeles I’m this > < close to going back to TMO LOLZ .

  • James Smith

    I guess merging I-Wireless sites into T-Mobile is considered an “upgrade?”

    What a sham.

    • riverhorse

      Significant work in Puerto Rico(devastated by the hurricane), NYC(the capital of the world), Virginia(which sorely needs to cover gaps in between its large cities), and various other areas..including recently acquired Iowa area. Why not? IF it’s OK with YOU.
      I sincerely sympathize that areas like Blue Swamp, Moon Shine Estuary, Billy Hills, Red Woods Neck, Meth Industrial Park, Ivory Crack Gorge, Mary Jane Vineyards and Trailer Estates don’t have optimal coverage yet.

      • James Smith

        No, not really.

      • Kissa

        Excuse you. I have optimal coverage over here in Mary Jane Vineyards!

  • Mark Kendrick

    For those in the covered areas, are you seeing increased indoor coverage? I would expect it based the frequency but I’m still curious, I don’t think I know anyone with a phone that has the proper bands.

    • (J²)

      Honestly, mine has gotten worse in Charlotte, NC both at home and in the office at work. When out and about, everything is fine.

  • Sharti24

    My iphone 6s plus has been latching onto band 2 lately (after my area was upgraded). I know theres band 4 on the same tower because i was connected to it before the tower upgrades. Just sucks being stuck on 5×5 band 2 at all

  • Jerry Rich

    So mid-band is band 12 and low-band is band 71?

    • Kaulana1989

      Band 12 is low band 700 megahertz and low band is band 71 as well 600 megahertz

      • Jerry Rich


  • Steve Park

    So why are states that begin with the letter “K” never on these lists. Still poking along at 10-20 Mbps. I notice when using Cell Mapper, my connection sometime is Band 12, but usually switches to Band 2 within a few min. on my LG V30 on Oreo.
