T-Mobile US Inc (TMUS) Launches Low-Band LTE Network In New York
T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ:TMUS) has unveiled its low-band LTE network in three more places in the United States. The company said that the network would bring 700MHz to Seattle, Cincinnati, and New York. As a result, the number of metro areas with the 700MHz network coverage increased to 246. Though there were not much reports about the rest of the places, its launch in New York, as well as, Cincinnati were termed as big one.
Biggest Single Market
The world’s financial city, New York, was the biggest market and was also T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ:TMUS)’s single biggest market. The new spectrum capacity would enable the company to offer better in-building penetration in New York while it would provide better coverage of rural and exurbs areas, according to its Engineering Director, Salim Kouidri.
The third biggest telecom service provider has been rolling out the new network spectrum since July following the clearance of the New Jersey’s public broadcaster. The company’s brand in 700MHz band is known as TV channel 51 and started building out. Since then, wireless spotters were witnessing sites active during the fall season. However, it has taken more time to get things in correct place such as site-to-site handoff.
Enhance The Speeds
T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ:TMUS)’s latest spectrum would enhance the speeds if it were used with the carrier’s aggregation-enabled phones. That included Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone 6S and SAMSUNG ELECT LTD(F) (ADR) (OTCMKTS:SSNLF)’s Galaxy Note 5. The engineer said that they were hoping for speed augmentation of 30 – 45%. The network would also enable the carrier to bridge the gap between subway stations.
Though the company had a decent coverage in New York City, there were some problems in the Northern, as well as, Northwestern suburbs like Orange, Duchess, Putnam, and Rockland. T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ:TMUS) cited the requirement of permits for every individual town in the north resulting in the slowdown. However, it was still working on it.
