T-Mobile customers seeing download speeds as high as 86 Mbps
Bellevue, WA and Kansas City, MO – November 21, 2014 – Not only does T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) have the fastest nationwide 4G LTE network, the Un-carrier™ offers the fastest 4G LTE mobile speeds in the greater Kansas City area. Already in November, T-Mobile LTE customers in these areas have observed download speeds as high as 86 Mbps. With the average download speed clocking in at 19.3 Mbps, T-Mobile customers around Kansas City are seeing speeds faster than Verizon and more than one and half times faster than AT&T and Sprint.
“Our Data-Strong™ network has more network capacity per customer than any other major national carrier, making it the best network for data-hungry customers,” said Jennifer Silveira, Central Area Vice President of Engineering, T-Mobile. “I encourage every single Kansas City resident to experience what it’s like to surf, stream, Facebook or FaceTime on a network built for the mobile internet by taking T-Mobile’s network for a Test Drive.”
T-Mobile Test Drive is a first-of-its-kind nationwide initiative, created as a new way to buy wireless. With T-Mobile Test Drive, people receive an iPhone 5s and unlimited nationwide service to take T-Mobile’s network for a data-intensive, seven-day spin at no cost whatsoever.
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 carriers 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, Kansas City 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 44.9 million songs on Pandora, watching over 25.6 million YouTube videos and over half a million Netflix videos, and posting more than 39 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. Test Drive: Credit or debit card req’d. Phone return in 7 days to avoid $375 charge +tax. See T-Mobile.com for Test Drive & coverage details.
