T-Mobile Continues Wideband LTE Rollout

T-Mobile activated its Wideband LTE spectrum throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, bringing up to a 50% increase in speed to customers.  The carrier said its customers in the region are now averaging 21 Mbps, with observed peak rates of up to 90 Mbps. Customers are using about 2.5 GB of data per month.

“We know Bay Area T-Mobile customers are going to notice and take advantage of the faster LTE speeds Wideband LTE provides,” said Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer, T-Mobile. “Just because we’ve made an upgrade to the network in these areas, don’t think we are done yet. We are continually working to enhance and expand LTE coverage for our customers every day.”

  • T-Mobile has defined Wideband LTE as at least 15+15MHz.  The carrier has deployed Wideband LTE in over 17 metro areas already and expects at least 26 total metro areas will be up with Wideband LTE by the end of the year. The carrier is also starting to roll out its new low-band 700 MHz A-Block spectrum.
