    T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray today confirmed that T-Mo has added low-band LTE to more cell sites over the past two weeks. T-Mobile has confirmed to me that this expansion includes both 600MHz and 700MHz spectrum.

    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    Iowa got a lot of love. I really like these updates that T-Mobile does about every two weeks. Can't wait until I see some Band 71 showing up in South Florida before the end of the year.

    Are they just adding to the same list or issuing new lists? I'm seeing some overlap on some of the cities.

    I think it’ll be some of the same cities. The title indicates it’s by cell site and not town/city. So I would think seeing the same city makes sense as that area would already be 600 cleared and ready for more sites. When a city goes live, it doesn’t typically mean they put it on every site needed and turn it all on at once. It’s generally a gradual or phased process.

    That's how I view it also. A listed city won't always be every site especially large cities and towns with multiple sites.

    It is impressive with how fast they are at least getting 600 out there. They can always go back and fill in the gaps which I assume they will do

    I'll be curious as to how fast they will be deploying in SoCal. Palmdale and Irvine are live according to this.

    This list includes any city where 600 or 700 was added to one or more sites within city limits. I would guess that both Irvine and Palmdale are on the list due to 700, not 600.

    700MHz I would agree. I thought that I read about some areas getting 600MHz like Pomona and Fountain Valley, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was just low band aka 600 or 700MHz

    Which is what it is because the other carriers could release the exact same updates every week since it's so run of the mill for this industry that why bother? It seems good for the network following people but for anyone that actually works in the industry this weekly self congratulatory pat on the back is fairly embarrassing.

    Embarrassed over them mentioning upgrades? No way. Is TMobile a little too enthusiastic? Definitely. The people I know that are in the industry respect it and say keep the updates coming.

    Worked with a network engineer for att the other day and he said TMobile is adding band 71 even faster than att is adding band 14. He was impressed with tmobile and said once they add more capacity they will be a killer network.

    Well, there were some issues to be worked on with the B14 deployment I hear, but they now have the green light for massive rollouts. In addition to that, B14 equipment, namely in the ALU/N markets is new, so they are basically just starting on a large scale. T-Mobile has been working on their 600 rollout since last year. Plus, adding B14 isn't just like adding another layer of capacity, there are regulations regarding that spectrum with FirstNet.

    Myself, I’m glad both T-Mobile and AT&T are adding coverage for rural areas. Having more complete coverage from several carriers is a good thing.
