T-Mobile has announced improved coverage and faster iPhone speeds in three new metro areas.
As a part of our $4B plan to transform our network, T-Mobile continues to strengthen an already fast and competitive 4G experience in major metro areas across the country by installing new equipment and retuning our 4G airwaves to work with more devices.
Today I’m pleased to announce that Baltimore, Houston and Washington D.C. are the latest metro areas where T-Mobile customers can benefit from enhanced voice and data coverage, and faster speeds on unlocked devices, including the iPhone.
Customers in these areas can now bring their unlocked iPhones to T-Mobile, experience a significant speed boost on our network, while also saving up to $50/month compared to AT&T*! Our internal tests of unlocked iPhone 4S devices running over 4G (HSPA+) on our 1900 network recorded on average 70% faster download speeds than iPhone 4S devices on AT&T’s network. T-Mobile’s “all you can eat” access to 4G data, including streaming video, rich apps, social media, web surfing and more, lets customers use their smartphones without the worry of what pushing a certain button will do to their bills.
New Metro Areas:
● Washington D.C.: Alexandria, VA; Arlington, VA; Chevy Chase, MD; Falls Church, VA; Laurel, MD; McLean, VA; and Silver Spring, MD.
● Baltimore: Glen Burnie and Towson, MD
● Houston: Cypress, Jersey Village, Humble, Kingwood, and The Woodlands.
T-Mobile is also working on network advancements in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York metro area, Philadelphia, San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle.
