Rochester, NY — May 11, 2016
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 Rochester.
With a rapid deployment of a nationwide LTE footprint and coverage that reaches over 308 million Americans, “Roc City” is now lit up with T-Mobile’s best in-building coverage offering.
Extended Range LTE Coverage
T-Mobile has been furiously rolling out new spectrum that carries the LTE signal twice as far from towers, for a massive coverage expansion – plus it’s four times better in buildings than before.
In the past year, T-Mobile has deployed airwaves known as 700 MHz nationwide including cities such as New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C., 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 the East End or have an important business meeting in 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 T-Mobile Equipment Installment Plan by visiting https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phones.lte-band-twelve.html.
In addition to Rochester, 700 MHz now also extends to Un-carrier customers in other cities, including Gates, Brighton, Irondequoit, Batavia, Caledonia, Canandaigua, Seneca Falls and Penn Yann.
“The Flower City” is just the latest to receive T-Mobile’s best in-building coverage as performance enhancements of America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network never stop.
As part of T-Mobile’s on-going commitment to Rochester, the Un-carrier also opened two new retail stores in the area – at Webster and Eastview Malls.
In addition to delivering America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network, T-Mobile has unleashed a steady drumbeat of industry-rocking Un-carrier moves, including abolishing restrictive annual service contracts, data limits, shock overages, the upgrade runaround, high international roaming charges and many more old-guard carrier practices.
