More T-Mobile cell sites upgraded with additional mid-band LTE capacity


We may be deep in the holiday season, but that doesn’t mean that T-Mobile is taking time off from its network upgrades.

    Glad to see Homestead on the list, it wasn’t great in the area.

    Whens 5G gonna start being deployed?

    • They probably won’t start talking about where it’s deployed until they turn on the 5G network sometime next year.
      EDIT: I thought you said where not when. It’s already being deployed, but it won’t be turned on until sometime next year. Also next year the first phones to support 5G will be launched.

      • Sharti24

        Any idea when 600mhz 5G will start? I dont think theyre deploying mmW and 600mhz 5G at the same time

        • I believe that although the majority of their network will be 600mhz (which is also being used for 4G lte it seems), they are deploying some mmw simultaneously. I’m not completely sure though.

        • SirStephenH

          A lot of it depends on where. Band 71 deployment is still blocked in many areas by incumbent TV stations.

    • Christina

      I want them to focus on their coverage before even considering 5G, you idiot.

      • droider

        I agree with the part after “,” about @Sharti24:disqus

    Can Tmobile please upgrade their St Augustine, FL tower. Tmobile coverage is absolutely terrible. St Augustine is the center fastest growing county in Florida with the highest average income in the state. It is America’s oldest city with the most beautiful beaches in Florida and a major tourist destination with more than a million visitors per year.

    Yet there is only one tower which has not been upgraded. When I visit, I have to go to the roof of the condo where we stay to get a usable signal.
    Tmobile refuses to buy into a group of new multi-service towers

    Most people there refuse to buy Tmobile because the service so spotty.
    Tmobile, can you PLEASE fix this.

    • JG

      Not that this would negate the need to upgrade the tower & get more coverage in the area, but…

      When I visit, I have to go to the roof of the condo where we stay to get a usable signal.

      As long as your device(s) are fairly recent (like 2-3years old) you should be able to at least make calls over WiFi. So as long as you can get on WiFi, you should be able to stay in your own condo and still use your phone without having to venture to the roof.

      I’m not 100% if SMS over WiFi is a thing or not though(*). But if you have compliant devices RCS should work (assuming your messaging someone who also has a compliant device).

      *Of course, with the FCC’s recent ruling, there has been a push (though rather limited and unsuccessful, from what I’ve seen) to abandon SMS in favor of Signal (which will work over WiFi).

        Yes, wifi calling is one remedy, but why pay for a cellular service if you can’t use it and have to rely on another paid wifi service instead?
