T-Mobile boosts LTE capacity in Minneapolis by 35x

When football fans descend upon the Twin Cities and pack into US Bank Stadium for Super Bowl LII, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) customers can expect incredible LTE coverage and speed to share their game day moments in real time, the company said.

Over the last two years, the Un-carrier expanded coverage and permanently increased LTE capacity up to 35x in and around key locations in the Twin Cities by launching several LTE Advanced technologies, deploying new small cells and distributed antenna systems (DAS), doubling LTE spectrum and adding backhaul. All these upgrades have made T-Mobile´s LTE network the fastest in the Twin Cities, based on tests from real wireless customers.

To make sure T-Mobile customers are ready to post, tweet, snap and share every key moment from the big game, T-Mobile also boosted upload speeds inside US Bank Stadium by deploying Centralized Radio Access Network (C-RAN) technology. C-RAN can increase upload speeds by as much as 40% in high traffic situations, and has the added benefit of helping extend smartphone battery life.

T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS) is redefining the way consumers and businesses buy wireless services through product and service innovation. For more information, visit http://www.t-mobile.com.
