T-Mobile customers seeing download speeds as high as 91 Mbps
Bellevue, WA and Columbus, OH – November 21, 2014 – While T-Mobile’s (NYSE: TMUS) 4G LTE network ranks fastest nationwide, it also offers the fastest mobile speeds in the greater Columbus, OH area. Already in November, T-Mobile LTE customers in these areas have observed download speeds as high as 91 Mbps. With the average download speed clocking in at 30.2 Mbps, T-Mobile customers in and around Columbus are seeing speeds one and a half times faster than Verizon, more than two times faster than AT&T and more than two and half times faster than Sprint.
“Our network is truly built for today’s mobile Internet age, delivering the speeds needed for all the surfing, streaming, FaceTiming and Facebooking our customers in the Columbus area have in them,” said Jennifer Silveira, Central Area Vice President of Engineering, T-Mobile. “With download speeds as high as 91 Mbps, is it any surprise that T-Mobile customers use twice as much data as AT&T customers?”
Not all wireless companies and their networks are created equal. T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network delivers more network capacity per customer than any other major national carrier and is concentrated in the areas where data is used the most – where people live, work and play. It’s no wonder, customers who use the most data, choose T-Mobile.
And, Columbus area T-Mobile customers are no exception. During the month of October, these customers used an average of about 1.9 GB of data each while streaming more than 20.5 million songs on Pandora, watching over 11.6 million YouTube videos, and posting more than 18 million Instagram pictures.
T-Mobile’s Data-Strong™ network, the fastest nationwide 4G LTE network, now reaches over 250 million people and was the first to launch:
- Next-gen Wi-Fi Calling in September 2014
- Nationwide Voice over LTE (VoLTE) in July 2014
- Nationwide HD Voice in January 2013
Capacity based on congestion experienced; per customer. Wideband LTE speeds based on download speeds.
