T-Mo pushes security update to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, deploys Extended Range LTE to Jersey Shore area


The USA's unmistakably magenta-painted carrier is broadcasting a security update to Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge units hooked to its national network. Weighing at 43MB, the update supersedes a security patch that rolled out for both smartphones earlier this month. The changelog only lists the security patches as the new addition, which means this update is totally focused on bringing enhanced security on time. Users should receive a prompt to update, although manually checking for an update from the Settings > About phone menu is still an option.

In another bit of T-Mobile news, the Un-carrier confirmed its Extended Range LTE (700 MHz low band) which carries T-Mobile’s LTE signals both farther and deeper in indoor settings is now live throughout the Jersey Shore. In the past year, T-Mobile has deployed airwaves known as 700 MHz nationwide including cities such as Boston, Philadelphia, and New York City. The Jersey Shore area is the latest to benefit, as it's been a priority for T-Mobile. With summer around the corner and millions of people hitting the beach, the carrier wanted to roll out Extended Range LTE to cover New Jersey's beaches just in time to meet the increase in traffic.

Kudos to T-Mobile for pushing frequent updates! I hope the extended LTE band makes its way to Orange County CA soon
