    Well, that’s nice that Houston is listed. As we near July, it would be nice to have a clear, and specific update regarding Band 71 though. . .

    • T Redd

      It should be this year according to the phase video they put out awhile back. Houston needs it very bad. The service is spotty down there.

      • Brandon

        Which parts of Houston is T-Mobile service bad?

        • T Redd

          I couldn’t tell you off top of my head, but just riding through Houston there’s a lot of parts of the city that needs work. I have a friend who stays in north side of Houston she has to be connected to Wi-Fi calling 24 seven. if not She would sound like a robot or the calls would repeatedly drop.. It’s not all bad down there, there’s a lot of good spots and there’s some bad spots.

    What are they doing? Upgrading one tower in each city listed? Is that why we see the same cities listed over and over again?

    • SirStephenH

      It’s normally multiple towers but it could be as little as one.

    • marque2

      Basically you hit the nail on the head. They upgrade one tower so they can claim 600mhz in the area then move on. They only really cover a few favored big cities.

      While I understand T mobile doesn’t have infinite money to expand – they were rather disingenuous in their announcements of band 71 expansion.

      • Red

        A few favored big cities? Do you even look at these lists?

        • marque2

          Actually I look at charts that show the actual towers with band 71. You see a city like Tuscon on the list and they added it on one (more) tower. You see Phoenix and half the town is filled.

          I stand by my statement.

    • Andrew

      Cities also sometimes show up in these announcements a few times

  • BBSB_2.1

    Isn’t this old repeated news?

    • Daniel

      No. Neville tweets a new list of mid band capacity upgrades or low band deployments every other week.

  • monkeysoup

    It is very rare to see Colorado make the list. Even then, it’s only one or two towns.

  • SirStephenH

    I didn’t even know that Airway Heights, WA existed. The nice thing about these announcements is that they’re each a lesson in geology.

  • Anthony Gar

    Well, stay away from T-Mobile and metro if you are in New Mexico, north of Santa Fe. They will never update anything here, one of their twitter drones so much as admitted. Typical symptoms of being under capacity. The network works fairly OK, if rather slowly, during non peak hours but you get a second of ping and unusable speed all evening and into the night. It finally starts recovering past midnight. Stay away.
