Mobile massively expands Gigabit LTE coverage

Mobile massively expands Gigabit LTE coverage”

This means that customers with select devices in 430 markets could get Gigabit Class LTE speeds.

Qualcomm and T-Mobile took to the stage on Thursday at the San Jose Convention Center to show off Gigabit Class LTE using flagship smartphones. T-Mobile pioneered LLA's precursor with LTE-U earlier this year. On top of that, using a combination of carrier aggregation, 4X4 MIMO, and 256 QAM, you could see speeds double again.

This is what I'm talking about when I say T-Mobile has America's best unlimited network and the only one purpose-built for unlimited.

T-Mobile is not the only carrier getting into gigabit LTE. All the other major carriers - Verizon, Sprint and AT&T - are also heavily investing in this space.

The biggest impact that Gigabit LTE will have is preparing networks and consumers for the inevitable jump to 5G.

The demonstrations highlighted the capabilities of Android devices powered by the Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform with X16 LTE - Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy Note8, Moto Z2 Force Edition, and LG V30 - on T-Mobile's LTE Advanced network.

And while there's been a lot of talk about 5G speeds, gigabit LTE isn't really that. T-Mobile claims that they can reach such speeds because of two factors, the upgrades they've made to the network and the new Snapdragon Gigabit LTE modems supplied by Qualcomm. "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".

This latest announcement places T-Mobile well ahead of other USA carriers when it comes to LTE Advanced, and seeing as how the Un-Carrier hasn't shown any signs of slowing down since it first started testing this network in 2014, we don't expect that to change anytime soon.
