700MHz LTE map

With so much interest in T-Mobile continued low-band spectrum and 700MHz LTE activation, we thought it best that we put a permanent page, available from the home page of TmoNews to show you how things were developing. The original map was posted a while back at SpectrumGateway. Full credit to the original creator, DanRant on reddit.

We’ve embedded¬†the interactive map above.

As you click on various markets and icons you get information specific to that area. For instance, the antennas with red circles around them are protected TV channel 51 locations, where 700MHz can’t be used by T-Mobile. Antennas with green circles show areas where an application to relocate the channel has been submitted. 700MHz can’t be used in these locations by T-Mobile until the relocation has been completed. Purple antennas show were potential antennas have been spotified, but are awaiting verification.

Markets colored pink are those where T-Mobile owns the spectrum, the orange/brown markets are where T-Mobile has applied to purchase spectrum, but the deal is still pending.

It goes without saying that some information may be inaccurate, but it’s the best look at T-Mo’s 700MHz dealings we’ll get until we get official announcements from the carrier.
