In partnership with Navy Exchange Service Command, T-Mobile has built new, advanced LTE coverage to support the troops and families stationed there
Bellevue, Wash. — Nov. 10, 2016 — To support the 5,500 active duty military, reservists, their families, and staff who reside there, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced it has expanded its domestic 4G LTE network to cover Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, bringing 4G LTE data and texting to the base for the first time. T-Mobile is providing the first LTE coverage to NS Guantanamo Bay through a contract with the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM).
"We're honored to be able to serve those who serve this country with the first high-speed connection to the outside world for the thousands of service men and women and their families at Guantanamo Bay," said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. "T-Mobile has a long and proud history of supporting our armed forces and that includes a deep commitment to being a great place to work for veterans and military as part of the White House Joining Forces Initiative."
Through the previous wireless provider, residents at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay only had cellular voice service - no texting or data! Now, T-Mobile has built 11 cell sites with LTE coverage on the base from the nation's fastest LTE provider on the nation's most advanced LTE network.
"The new 4G LTE coverage is a huge boon to everyone at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay," said Captain David Culpepper, the installation Commanding Officer. "This gives all of us here a whole new level of access to wireless devices and service-and is the first time a major U.S. wireless operator has actually built cell sites for LTE coverage inside of Guantanamo Bay."
Starting in August, base residents have been able to activate T-Mobile service - choosing from all postpaid and prepaid plans the Un-carrier has to offer just like T-Mobile customers stateside - including a full selection of devices and accessories available at a Wireless Advocates retail kiosk inside the Navy Exchange (NEX) store on the base. Residents can also bring their own compatible phones to access the network. In addition, Department of Defense Commands stationed at NS Guantanamo Bay can purchase from T-Mobile's Federal Government Sales Team.
"Every day we have the honor and privilege to serve our heroes in the military, the reserves and their families. And the number one ask from our military personnel in Guantanamo Bay has been about bringing high-speed wireless service to the base," said Dan Brettler, chairman and CEO of Wireless Advocates. "Now, with the launch of T-Mobile LTE they're amazed by the experience! We are proud to bring T-Mobile's great service and products to Guantanamo Bay."
With access to T-Mobile’s domestic 4G LTE network, customers in NS Guantanamo Bay can now enjoy all of T-Mobile’s Un-carrier benefits including:
- Llamadas, textos y datos 4G LTE ilimitados en tu smartphone o tablet
- Streaming ilimitado de video y música
- Datos ilimitados, textos y llamadas a tarifas fijas bajas en más de 140 países y destinos

En todos los planes, durante períodos de congestión, el 3% de los usuarios que más datos usen (>28 GB/mes) pueden notar velocidades reducidas hasta el siguiente ciclo de facturación debido a la priorización de datos. Por lo general, el streaming de video es en calidad DVD en teléfonos/tablets (480p). International service requires qualifying plan.
