T-Mobile’s new 4G service will keep pace with its competitors’ initially, but as the company fine tunes its deployment, its speeds will increase. Eventually T-Mo will field a network capable of supporting a theoretical 150 Mbps connection.
Reports are coming in that T-Mobile will start selling the nano-SIM in October, and you know what that means. It will be able to activate unlocked iPhone 5s on its network. Most customers will still be limited to 2G speeds, but that’s changing quickly.
FCC documentation reveals there are two more LTE bands hidden within AT&T’s version of the new iPhone 5: PCS and cellular. The thing is there are no networks at either frequency today that could connect to the device. Could AT&T be planning a massive network overhaul?
No iPhone for T-Mobile, but exasperated T-Mo customers, take heart. The iPhone 5’s configuration aligns perfectly with the new network upgrades T-Mobile is rolling out today. It will take a year for the network to be fully LTE compatible, but T-Mobile isn’t waiting that long.
