What’s the news
T-Mobile launches the first-ever 600 MHz hotspot, the Coolpad Surf, and marks the Un-carrier’s 29th 600 MHz capable device available, up from zero devices 15 months ago.
Why it matters
T-Mobile has been rolling out 600 MHz LTE at record-shattering speed, giving customers more coverage and capacity.
Who it’s for
People across the country who need to stay connected – even in rural areas.
YOU get coverage and YOU get coverage. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today launched the first-ever 600 MHz hotspot, the Coolpad Surf, for just $3 per month for 24 months plus a data plan. This pocket-sized hotspot from Coolpad Americas gives you reliable speed and coverage on the go, whether you’re in a less populated area, traveling the country… or just need to distract your backseat drivers.
The Coolpad Surf taps into T-Mobile’s 600 MHz LTE, now available in more than 2,700 cities and towns across 43 states and Puerto Rico. That's a game-changer for Americans as 600 MHz LTE offers even more LTE coverage and capacity to T-Mobile’s network. And because the signal travels twice as far from the tower and works four times better in buildings than mid-band, 600 MHz LTE offers better coverage -- even in more rural areas.
“The Coolpad Surf joins an impressive lineup of 600 MHz capable devices at T-Mobile -- we went from zero devices to 29 in just over a year with phones, tablets, IoT devices and now, a hotspot,” said Neville Ray, CTO of T-Mobile. “Now, along with 600 MHz adding more coverage and more capacity, T-Mobile customers continue to get more choice. And we're just getting started."
T-Mobile swept the FCC’s Broadcast Incentive Auction in April 2017, winning a massive haul of super-premium low band spectrum to cover every American across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. After receiving its spectrum licenses from the FCC, the Un-carrier began lighting up its 600 MHz network in only two months, and in September 2017, T-Mobile announced the first-ever 600 MHz device – the LG V30. Since then, the company has blown out its 600 MHz capable device roster. All these choices on the nation's fastest LTE network… more reasons T-Mobile customers are the happiest in wireless, two years running.
The Coolpad Surf features:
- A 2150 mAh battery that lasts up to 48 hours on standby or for 5.3 hours of continuous use and can be used with up to 15 devices at once
- A sleek, lightweight and portable design measuring only 4.29 x 2.64 x 0.63 inches
- LED indicators and control panel with key statistics including battery life
- Support for Band 71 (600 MHz LTE) along with 4G LTE Bands 2, 4, 12, and 66, and 3G Bands 1, 2 and 4
