They didn't stop! T-Mobile adds mid-band spectrum to hundreds of cell sites

They didn't stop! T-Mobile adds mid-band spectrum to hundreds of cell sites
T-Mobile keeps saying in their ads that they won't stop (improving the network and removing customer pain points), and here is a good example of the carrier's policy. Just a few days after announcing that it had enhanced LTE coverage by adding low-frequency spectrum to hundreds of cell sites, the nation's third largest carrier announced that it has added mid-band spectrum to a long list of cities.

Similar to the previous announcement, the news was tweeted out by the carrier's Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Neville Ray, who is a member of president and CEO John Legere's brain trust. As much as Legere's marketing prowess is responsible for turning T-Mobile into the most innovative and fastest growing of the four major stateside carriers, Ray has led T-Mobile's ambitious LTE build out which nearly swept the latest Open Signal report.

While Ray's tweet didn't mention this, previous mid-band upgrades included AWS and PCS spectrum. The locations where the spectrum was deployed include:
