Already faster than Verizon, AT&T and Sprint, the Un-carrier’s™ network gets up to a 50% increase in speed with Wideband LTE upgrade
Spokane, Washington – December 3, 2014 – On the heels of recent LTE upgrades across the U.S., T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) today announced that Wideband LTE has arrived in the greater Spokane, WA area. Already the fastest major national wireless carrier in the area, T-Mobile has made mobile speeds even faster in Spokane by upgrading its LTE network to Wideband LTE, bringing up to a 50% increase in mobile speeds to LTE customers. The speed boost allows for super-fast download speeds, making access to customers’ favorite mobile content seem almost instantaneous. In November, T-Mobile customers in Spokane observed download speeds as high as 43 Mbps.
