Yesterday T-Mobile’s blog featured an update on their ongoing 4G network upgrade. Topics ranged from sites to equipment used and a touch on LTE rollout plans.
Firstly Ericson/Seimens was mentioned as the equipment partner of choice. This includes HSDPA+ upgrades and future LTE base station equipment. T-Mobile states over 400 sites have completed the upgrade to their latest GSM/HSDPA+ deployment, with 2500 more scheduled to receive this update by the end of July.
T-Mobile also announced over 19,500 sites will eventually receive the GSM/HSDPA+ updates including 42mbps service. They noted they have all required licensing and permits, so all is proceeding according to schedule.
Some of the new equipment also increases the speed of their 1900mhz HSDPA network, which will be a boon for those using unlocked devices (especially fruit flavored faux smartphones). Something which we can all agree is nice, especially for those on their prepaid service.
LTE trials are underway with the latest release-10 hardware as well. This is one noted advantage of the 2013 release date, and should make big Magenta’s LTE footprint a serious contender. More to come on this I’m sure, as always stay tuned and we will keep you informed here at ACSyndicate.
