News T-Mobile Lights Up Greater Boston Area With Extended Range LTE

Boston, MA — May 20, 2016

What:

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 the greater Boston area.

With a wicked fast deployment of a nationwide LTE footprint and coverage that reaches over 308 million Americans, Bostonians can now experience 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 on Boylston Street or have an important business meeting in downtown -- your coverage doesn’t have to be sacrificed.

“Knowing the unique geography of the New England area – it was important that we roll out Extended Range LTE on a massive scale and to include both urban and rural areas,” said Terry Hayes, Senior Vice President, Northeast Area. “This upgrade allows us to provide significant coverage solutions to our customers regardless of if they are vacationing on The Cape or live in Woostah – they now have an even better network experience.”

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 http://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phones.lte-band-twelve.html.
