Hundreds of T-Mobile Cell Sites Upgraded to Mid-Band Capacity

t-mobile-mid-band-upgrade
Last month, T-Mobile announced that hundreds of cell sites received more low-band LTE. Today, more network improvements have been announced by Neville Ray, the Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President of T-Mobile.

In his announcement, Ray confirmed that hundreds of their cell sites received upgrades and additional mid-band capacity. These improvements rolled over in the last couple of weeks. For T-Mobile, mid-band is band 2 (1900 Mhz) and band 4 (1700 Mhz).

The announcement was made through a GIF image posted on his Twitter account. The GIF contains a list of all the cities where the network upgrades have been deployed to.

If you are a T-Mo customer in one of these cities, you can already start testing out the enhancements and see whether these have made things better for you and your network use.

  1. Florida's upgrade areas phuuff

    Anyone wanting to take advantage of T-Mobile's 55+ plan (2 lines of unlimited everything) $60/mo better hurry. Price increases to $70/mo for the 2 lines next week/March 15th. Those who lock in the $60/mo price won't be affected. All taxes & fees are included.

    Guess they gotta pay for these Band upgrades somehow.
    Wonder if they'll start charging MVNO's like Mint Sim more $moolah now.

  2. Unrelated topic but advice requested. Someone I know that has been a Boost Mobile customer with the same phone number for 5+ years called into their customer service asking for technical assistance on their voice mail not working. After getting bounced around by customer service reps and doing several service resets their phone number changed. The customer did not ask or pay for a phone number change. The original phone number that they had for 5+ years is no longer in service and can not be returned. What should the boost customer do, legal action?, file grievance with FCC any suggestions?

    1. There are plenty of Boost Mobile related posts on this site where your comment would be on-topic. This is not one of them.

      If Boost lost your phone number and refuses to fix their mistake, file an FCC complaint ASAP. Go to FCC Complaints.

    1. Yes, the nidband bands 2 and 4 have been used for years by T-Mobile AT&T and Veriizon. The news is that T-Mobile has increased the capacity of many of its mid band sites to support more users and higher speeds.

  4. I tried deprioritized Metro in Tulsa recently.

    It was 25kbps terribad, as if it was deliberately throttled down to 2G speeds like on hard capped plans.

    Wound up switch to Cricket and haven't had problems since, although I've yet to see if Cricket's deprioritization is anywhere near as unusable as Metro's.

    Anyway, it doesn't seem like the added capacity was enough to even meet demand.
