T-Mobile adds low-frequency LTE to hundreds of cell sites
In a tweet disseminated today, Ray noted that T-Mobile added low-band 4G LTE coverage to hundreds of sites over the last two weeks. Just a month ago, the nation's third largest but most innovative wireless operator added more low-band LTE to over 100 sites. T-Mobile's low band LTE spectrum employs 600MHz and 700MHz coverage. The 600MHz airwaves were won last year in an FCC auction. T-Mobile spent $7.9 billion and purchased 31MHz of 600MHz spectrum that has already paid off for the carrier.
