T-Mobile rolls out low-band LTE upgrades to hundreds of cities


Two weeks after its last round of low-band LTE upgrades, T-Mobile today confirmed that more upgrades have been made.

T-Mobile has upgraded hundreds of cities across the U.S. with more low-band LTE. These upgrades include both 600MHz and 700MHz spectrum.

This is a pretty large batch of low-band LTE updates. Included are cities like Austin, TX; Phoenix, AZ; Spokane, WA; Louisville, KY; Newark, NJ; and Chicago, IL. Below I’ve got the full list of cities that’ve gotten a low-band LTE upgrade, so give it a look and see if your town is included.

    Long Boat needs it… Used to completely lost signal

    • CC

      I vacation there its terrible coverage only good around St. Armands Circle

  • frankinnoho

    Just checked my speed in Reno NV. 10Mbs in the afternoon! Haven’t seen speed like this in four years! Just hoping it lasts.

    • Trevnerdio

      10mbps? Oh man, is it really that bad?

      • JJ

        Yea, it used to be good there. But i heard for some reason there is a lot of slow down with data with tmobile there and they can’t seem to fix it.

    • Shaun Michalak

      I know the feeling. I am on Metro (T-Mobiles sister company), and I have been for years.. But before that, I was on T-Mobile.. Here, for the last few years, download speeds have been bad.. I mean, most of the time during the day I would only get speeds of about 2MB if I was lucky.. Lately I have been getting speeds of about 10 meg down a lot.. I just did a test at 10:30pm and got 10.4mb down.. If I would have done that same test a year ago, I probably would have been lucky to get 1 meg.

  • tmobile doesnt give a shizz about kissimmee/stcloud florida

    • JJ

      I’m in kissimee all the time and i have great coverage there. In fact i think there are several areas with 600mhz. Even if not my signal there is actually really good. I have a 6t.

      • kissimmee is decent.. once you get closer to st cloud it begins to fade.. rural st cloud especially narcoossee ( where I live) its horrible

  • Raiterio Patterson

    Look at all those cities/towns in N.C. getting low band!! Keep it up, Neville & Co.

  • Sharti24

    I Wont be purchasing a new phone until 600mhz comes to the akron/canton area. Iphone 6s plus 4life

    • riverhorse

      Come and listen to the story about a man named Jed,
      a poor mountaineer- barely kept his family fed,
      And then one day he was shootin’ at some food,
      and up thru the ground popped a bubblin’ crude.
      Oil, that is. Black gold. Texas tea.
      Well the first thing you know, ol’ Jed’s a millionaire;
      the kinfolk said, “Jed, move away from there!”
      Said, “Calihorny is the place you oughta be!”

      • Sharti24

        Ok maybe Jed can buy me an iphone 11 if he wants to

    • AA-Ron

      I was just there with my note 9 and I got great reception

  • Phil7474

    Houston stay getting love. Bet that

  • AMC4x4

    Yay! Finally it looks like we will have great service for our summer vacation near Glen, NH. Service in that area by Storyland through Intervale and into North Conway was always an issue.

  • Augustine

    No, no new deployments of B12 on the towers in the area near my workplace: is{dot}gd{slash}5kj6wj

    As one can see in the map above, in spite of the hilly terrain, towers bearing B12 are few and far between, indeed several miles between, as soon as one moves away from downtown.

    • Shaun Michalak

      They did say “low band” which is both, band 12 and 71 (their new 600mhz spectrum) .. I do not know what phone you are using but only T-Mobile (and their sister companies like Metro) phones actually have band 71 enabled. This mean, unlocked from the factory phones can have band 12 enabled, but not band 71.. If you have a phone more than a year old, then it may not even support band 71. I would check on this, and if that is not the problem, maybe they just have not flipped the switch to turn it on those towers yet.. I know that is what happened here. They advertised the upgrade, but I did not see the difference for a month or so after it was advertised.

      • Augustine

        Yes, my phone does have B71. But not that it makes any difference, because the TV stations haven’t been relocated in my area yet, something that you can check in the link above by selecting that towers with B71 be shown.

  • kanakamaoli

    Can T-Mobile be more specific? I mean actual locations in Honolulu? There are many districts within Honolulu. And exactly what the upgrade was? A tower? Multiple towers? I have seen atleast 10 times that Honolulu been on the upgraded list the past two years? I havent seen any change in signal strength or additional Band 12 coverage let alone any band 71 sightings at all on my cell mapper app. In metro Honolulu, Especially, in Waikiki where there is alot of concrete buildings with no signal once you walk inside.,The south side of our major Shopping mall and it’s giant food court has 2G to no signal?
    I find that very odd because it is a very popular area? I’ve reach out to many times to T-Mobile only to get a response of we are continuing to upgrade these area’s?
    There should be more transparency with these reports.
