T-Mobile US to start testing 600 MHz sites this summer

Friday 16 June 2017 | 10:51 CET | News
T-Mobile US has started deploying the new 600 MHz spectrum it won during the latest FCC auction. The company reiterated that the investment quadrupled its low-band holdings, with an average of 31 MHz of 600 MHz spectrum licenses across the nation. The first sites for 600 MHz will be ready for testing this summer, setting the stage for commercial operations later this year. T-Mobile expects more than 1 million square miles of 600 MHz spectrum will be ready for deployment by year end.
