Miami area residents see an immediate boost in speeds as the Un-carrier’s upgrades the network to Wideband LTE

Miami, Florida – December 9, 2014 – On the heels of recent LTE upgrades across the U.S., T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) today announced that Miami, FL is the latest area to get up to a 50% increase in LTE mobile speeds from a Wideband LTE upgrade. In addition to the greater Miami area, LTE customers in the Ft. Lauderdale and Pompano Beach areas are also experiencing super-fast download speeds, making access to their favorite mobile content seem almost instantaneous. In December, T-Mobile customers in the Miami area observed download speeds as high as 75 Mbps.

Wideband LTE increases the bandwidth and capacity of T-Mobile’s LTE network to help deliver faster peak speeds. It is like adding more lanes to a freeway for all LTE customers to speed along in. With T-Mobile’s Wideband LTE, customers can download a full 90 minute HD movie to their phone or tablet in three and half minutes or a whole album in just nine seconds with theoretical peak download speeds of 110 Mbps.

With the average download speed in the Miami area recently clocking in at 20.5 Mbps, Miami customers are using on average 2.15 GB of data per month.
