    I can confirm that some areas of Tampa I have see a huge update.

  • AA-Ron

    Keep it coming!!!!!

  • Mark Stewart

    How about just getting any service at all. Even 3g would be a huge upgrade over NONEXISTENT.

  • Gabe N

    El paso tx, went from 4.50mbps to 25+mbps about 2 months ago

  • Red

    I’m betting those last two Texas locations are actually one. North Richland Hills, TX. Hills, TX has a population of approximately 20. :-D

  • fsured

    Are these locations that get listed with every update, are they a generic list of cities that have been upgraded regardless of when or specific to the upgrade Ray is talking about? Might be a silly question but after awhile every posting like this and listings all seem to look the same.

      “Some of the cities in this latest batch of mid-band upgrades include Puyallup, WA; West Des Moines, IA; Cambridge, MA; Frisco, TX; Jacksonville, FL; and San Diego, CA.”

      Otherwise the list contains all upgraded city’s/town’s

      • fsured

        Thank you for the reply.

    • SirStephenH

      These cities have had some kind of mid-band capacity upgrades within the past two weeks. The list is different each time depending on what cities were upgraded in the two week timeframe.

      These announcements are always for capacity upgrades. Capacity upgrades could theoretically include refarmed spectrum from 3G, carrier aggregation, 256 QAM, 4×4 MIMO, new micro or macro cells, or even improved backhaul for what anyone knows. There’s really no knowing what meets their definition of a “capacity upgrade”.

      • fsured

        Thank you for the reply. Some good info there.

      • Joe

        Also all they need to do is upgrade a single tower in the city to make it on the list.

        • SirStephenH

          There is actually no evidence that this is the case though.

  • Christopher Van Zetta

    Thank for keeping us updated bro!

    Noticed a few areas around Rockland County, NY with faster speeds that usually were slow as snail’s during rush hour.

    Keep up the good work T-Mobile!!!!

  • UniBroW

    Just want to preface this with that overall I am happy with T-Mobile but I’ve been told numerous times and been holding on for what seems like forever to the hope and the word from their mouths that service will improve near New Hyde park NY. You can have two or three bars of service and it performs as badly as Sprint did 4 years ago. Go inside a building and you’ll have nothing that works. It’s over saturated and there’s no building penetration going on at all.

    Last I was told there’d be an upgrade to the tower in September of this year and another in May, nothing so far.
