T-Mobile Expands LTE Coverage to Montana and Wyoming

Montana and Wyoming residents, here's some good news for you!

As it turns out, T-Mobile has entered into a "definitive agreement" with Blackfoot, a Missoula-based telecommunications company that builds cell sites. Blackfoot made the agreement official by announcing that it will be providing fiber back-haul services to the wireless carrier.

The partnership between both companies will allow T-Mobile to expand its network to cater to areas such as Bozeman, Great Falls, and Billings in Montana. This will also extend service throughout Butte and Helena. All in all, it's being said that T=Mobile will be building around 200 new cell sites in these two states.

As reported by TmoNews, one of its readers traveled to Billings, Montana and confirmed that he was able to see T-Mobile LTE coverage for the very first time. The reader, however, noted that coverage was still spotty at the time.

This expansion gives Montana and Wyoming residents more options on carrier availability with LTE coverage. If you've been considering switching to T-Mobile for quite some time, now may just be the right time to do it!

  2. Great!!! No need to roam of AT&T!
    Hopefully the map is updated as well to reflect the change.
    As well, hopefully more phones have LTE band 66 & 71 compatibility as well which is in few areas in those states as well.

  3. Nice to see T-Mobile expanding into those very spotty areas.
    Even with AT&T and Verizon there to whatever extent, there still needs to be a presence.
    Rather than roaming agreements, this is a much better option.

    1. The best option is cell service as a public utility, with carriers reselling service from only as many towers as are needed to cover an area.

      But that presumes an honest and responsible government, which ours most certainly is not.

  4. T-Mobile is going to be quite the contender in the years to come, and the real catalyst is that fat 600MHz block, which has my attention. For some time, they were, well, JUNK. What a turnaround. I just wonder, why, King Verizon and AT&T didn't at least bid on it in order to drive up the 600MHz price, in hopes of leaving T-Mobile a bit more disadvantaged capitally as to have that less to invest deploying it or as fast. It seems like the two just let T-Mobile cut their throat. I will be watching T-Mobile's network with great interest. #T-MobileRising #NotCurrentFan

    1. AT&T just didn't have the cash, after the $85 billion bid for Time Warner, and Verizon does't need more low end spectrum.

    2. I understand that. I just wonder why they didn't bid, at least in a bluff, to drive up the price on TMUS, leaving them with a lot less cash, complicating its deployment and straining TMUS. hmmm.

  5. "T-Mobile has sent into..." should be "T-Mobile has gone into" (in second paragraph, first sentence).

    1. I've changed "sent" to "entered". Thanks for reporting the grammatical error.
