The Un-carrier Network: Higher data speeds. Less power used.
Our Un-carrier network uses up the biggest share of our total power use. As we continue to expand our network footprint and improve performance, our energy team is continously researching and designing innovative ways to boost its efficiency and optimize its operation.
Between 2012 and 2019, the data carried by our network increased by 60 times, but because we're rolling out the most energy efficient technologies, our energy consumption per petabyte of data has steadily declined.
Our new low-band spectrum increases our service area, works better inside buildings, and improves coverage, all while significantly increasing network efficiency.
And, we're implementing new technologies that reduce the demands of heating and cooling our cellular equipment.
