T-Mobile Lights Up Greater Philadelphia Area With Extended Range LTE

PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ:TMUS):

 

What:

 

The Un-carrier™ today confirmed its Extended Range LTE, or 700 MHz
low band spectrum, which now carries T-Mobile’s LTE signals both
farther and deeper indoors than before, is now live throughout
Philadelphia.

 
With a rapid deployment of a nationwide LTE footprint that reaches
over 300 million Americans, “The City of Brotherly Love” is now lit
up with T-Mobile’s best in-building coverage offering.
 
Extended Range LTE Coverage
T-Mobile has been rolling out truckloads of new spectrum that
carries the LTE signal twice as far from towers, for a massive
coverage expansion – plus it works four times better in buildings
than before.
 
In eleven months, T-Mobile has aggressively rolled out airwaves
known as 700 MHz in 203 major metro areas including cities such as
Washington D.C., Houston and Austin, so you can use your compatible
phone to get great 700 MHz coverage while visiting friends and
family in those cities.
 
Extended Range LTE also enhances coverage in other areas already
served by our strong 4G LTE network, so T-Mobile LTE customers there
can experience better coverage in suburban and rural areas because
the signal reaches further and penetrates deeper than before.
 
So whether you are enjoying a night out in Old City or have an
important business meeting downtown — your coverage doesn’t have to
be sacrificed.
 

Customers with 700 MHz-compatible devices can already see the
benefits. Check your device compatibility or upgrade through JUMP!
