T-Mobile releases list containing names of all its 920+ markets that feature LTE-Advanced service
T-Mobile's Chief Technical Officer Neville Ray has released via a tweet, the complete list of markets covered by the carrier's LTE-Advanced network. The list also reveals which cities offer regular LTE-A and which feature LTE-A with Carrier Aggregation, 4×4 MIMO, and 256QAM. As it turns out, 430 of the 920+ markets are so endowed. Devices that support all three of those additional capabilities can receive Gigabit Class LTE and run at twice the download speed usually obtained with regular LTE-A networks. When you consider that regular LTE-A doubles the download speed of standard LTE networks, you can get an idea how fast peak data speeds can be.

Currently, handsets offered by T-Mobile that are compatible with LTE-Advanced include the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8+, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Motorola Moto Z2 Force, and the LG V30. As newer flagship models are released, you can expect them to work with the LTE-A signals. Your best bet though, is to check with T-Mobile before making the purchase of a new phone.

To check out which of T-Mobile's markets offer LTE-A and LTE-A with the "Trifecta," click on the this link which will open a PDF file. The names of LTE-A markets are listed by states. Those with regular LTE-A coverage are in black text, while those with the enhanced capabilities featuring LTE-A with Carrier Aggregation, 4×4 MIMO, and 256QAM are printed in magenta (of course!).

Downtown Cleveland right now. Speed test on the S8+ on my buddies says 13 down and 4 up. Reset the phone tried again. About the same. My IPhone 8+ on AT&T 31 down 11 up. He’s gotta buy me a beer now. TMO tweet all you want. Still don’t see it. And forget about it outside urban area’s. It’s worse.

Currently staying at a hotel in Irvine, CA . I can say downloads are averaging 70+ down on an unlocked V20. Worlds better than having Sprint service there a few weeks ago
