The Un-carrier’s™ already wicked fast mobile speeds get up to a 50% increase in speed with Wideband LTE upgrade
Bellevue, Washington – November 20, 2014 – On the heels of recent LTE upgrades in Philadelphia and Connecticut, T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) today announced that Wideband LTE has landed in Boston, MA. Already the fastest, T-Mobile has made mobile speeds even faster around Beantown by upgrading its LTE network to Wideband LTE, bringing up to a 50% increase in mobile speeds to LTE customers. In addition to Boston, customers in surrounding areas - including Springfield, Worcester as well as Providence and Warwick, RI - are all experiencing super-fast download speeds, making access to their favorite content seem almost instantaneous. Already in November, T-Mobile customers in the greater Boston area have observed download speeds as high as 94 Mbps.
Wideband LTE doubles the bandwidth and increases the capacity of T-Mobile's LTE network to help deliver faster peak speeds. It is like adding more lanes to a freeway for all LTE customers to speed along in. With T-Mobile's Wideband LTE, customers can download a full 90 minute HD movie to their phone or tablet in three and half minutes or a whole album in just nine seconds with theoretical peak download speeds of 110 Mbps.
With the average download speed in the Boston area clocking in at 24.1 Mbps, T-Mobile customers are seeing speeds faster than AT&T, one and a half times faster than Verizon and two and half times faster than Sprint.
"Our T-Mobile customers in Boston are going to love the speed boost that Wideband LTE is bringing to their lives," said Tom Ellefson, Vice President - Engineering, T-Mobile.
