T-Mobile adds low-band LTE to more cell sites


Two days after announcing a round of mid-band LTE capacity upgrades, T-Mo says that it’s expanded its low-band LTE coverage, too.

    Attention “only Iowa” complainers:
    Zilch this time.
    Zero, zip, nada, niente, tipota, mefish.

    • SirStephenH

      Iowa’s only because of the iWireless buyout anyways. Just ignore Iowa and it’s a normal upgrade cycle every time.

  • Hurlamania

    Most of these are obvious because all of these were included in last week’s mid band upgrades so the ones they could they added low Band also

  • Lester Dennis

    I just wish they had an option to where you can still have 4G unlimited hotspot

    • riverhorse

      Didn’t they just announce something like that?
      And if not…ideally what amount of HotSpot do you wish for?

      • Lester Dennis

        And a Unlimited amount and no they haven’t offered that they took it away when they discontinued the one plus international plan

    • Robert Roll

      they just expired the One Plus International Addon which had that for $25 more glad i kept it on my account

    I have to admit that T-Mobile’s been doing a wonderful job of upgrading, and expanding their spectrum capacity here on Long Island. I used to get 20-30 mbps down in Nassau county, but now am averaging speeds that are roughly 2x as opposed to what they provided in the past. I currently own a OnePlus6 as it’s the most value-added option as a flagship and supports band 71 for their planned upgrade next year. I really do think T-Mobile has a bright future ahead of them if keep up the good work and will never migrate to Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T. Overall, best and most reliable service I’ve ever used.

    Sacramento, CA? There is virtually zero signal through 50% of Sacramento.
