Mobile massively expands Gigabit LTE coverage Mobile massively expands Gigabit LTE coverage

The Un-carrier announced that LTE Advanced, the next generation of LTE, has expanded to more than 920 markets, eclipsing every other national wireless company, with a powerful combination of three speed-boosting technologies - carrier aggregation, 4X4 MIMO and 256 QAM - now live in 430 of those markets.

Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, and T-Mobile demonstrated the speed and power of Gigabit Class LTE on T-Mobile's network with flagship smartphones powered by Snapdragon Gigabit LTE modems. T-Mobile says it's using this "trifecta" so T-Mobile customers with compatible devices could get Gigabit Class LTE download speeds in those 430 markets.

T-Mobile also unveiled plans to launch License Assisted Access (LAA), another advanced LTE technology. LAA is said to arrive to T-Mobile's network this year. T-Mobile claims the 920 markets surpass those of other carriers that have deployed LTE Advanced technology.

T-Mobile is not the only carrier getting into gigabit LTE.

To be clear, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are also working on gigabit LTE networks. "In addition to providing blazing fast mobile connectivity, Gigabit Class LTE enables operators to expand network capacity to accommodate increasing demands by unlimited data plans, and increases overall spectral efficiency, enabling faster speeds for all users in the network". Some of the markets, 430 of them, will see the fastest speeds possible because of this combination.

Ultimately, being able to use T-Mobile's gigabit LTE network boils down to whether you own a supported device and whether you live in a supported area. Some of the phones that do include the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+, the Galaxy Note 8, the Galaxy S8 Active, the Moto Z Force Edition and the LG V30/V30+.

As of November 1, 41 operators in 24 different countries were deploying or trialing Gigabit LTE, including the four major US operators, according to Qualcomm.

T-Mobile has been rolling out LTE Advanced technologies in the network since 2014 and according to the company, was first globally with 4X4 MIMO and first in the USA with 256 QAM.
