To support the 5,500 active duty military, reservists, their families, and staff who reside there, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) has expanded its domestic 4G LTE network to cover Naval Station (NS) Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, bringing 4G LTE data and texting to the base for the first time.
T-Mobile is providing the first LTE coverage to NS Guantanamo Bay through a contract with the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM).
Through the previous wireless provider, residents at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay only had cellular voice service — no texting or data! Now, T-Mobile has built 11 cell sites with LTE coverage on the base from the nation´s fastest LTE provider on the nation´s most advanced LTE network.
Starting in August, base residents have been able to activate T-Mobile service — choosing from all postpaid and prepaid plans the Un-carrier has to offer just like T-Mobile customers stateside — including a full selection of devices and accessories available at a Wireless Advocates retail kiosk inside the Navy Exchange (NEX) store on the base. Residents can also bring their own compatible phones to access the network. In addition, Department of Defense Commands stationed at NS Guantanamo Bay can purchase from T-Mobile´s Federal Government Sales Team.
T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS) provides nationwide 4G LTE network to 69.4 million customers. Based in Bellevue, Washington, T-Mobile US provides services through its subsidiaries and operates its flagship brands, T-Mobile and MetroPCS.
