    When will Denver, Colorado get volte ?

  • Matthew Galea

    What it’s the primary difference between LTE and wideband LTE? Also, does wideband LTE require a special radio like VoLTE?

  • BobButtons

    Feel free to keep avoiding WI and I’ll feel free to keep avoiding your service.

  • mikewilson1021

    15.13 Mbps down and 18.02 Mbps up on N5 in Minneapolis. WTF?

  • Javon

    I live 30 mins from Houston but I don’t have the crazy speeds yet. Guess I will have to wait some time

  • Michael Harrison

    Wideband is humming along fantastic in Orlando on Nexus 5. I’ve been hitting 55+ Mbps on speedtest, indoors. It’s been a very noticeable bump in speed.

  • fTmobile

    Is that why I don’t receive calls any more? I am in Houston, as of right now people started telling me that they couldn’t get to me because it went straight to voicemail. I asked them to try it again and my phone does not ring. One step forward one step back. Hope it gets fixed soon.

  • foghorn67

    I wonder if Orange County, CA is included with Los Angeles?

    • Ryan Chapman

      LOL that is quiet the stretch….

  • Ryan Dunne

  • Dt Bell

    Why is Googling Wideband LTE specifically T-mobile? Is this an update of WiMax?

  • Ilya Kolodiychik

    Upstate, NY? LOL. Do people know how big upstate is? Way to narrow it down, T-Mo.

    • NJ

      “New Jersey”

  • aBabyPenguin

    So, which phones can take advantage of either of these?

  • Amy Smith

    Can you call me its a long story?

    • Amy Smith

      Here it goes. I got on Google+ for the first time ever today. I’m hypoglycemic so I was stuck in bed. As soon as I got on there this guy was awful . I was getting off when I dropped my phone. As luck would have it my camera uploaded all my Fb and reg pics on there. Nothing naked or anything like that. So I got off.
      A couple hours later I noticed my phone was all messed up. Wifi won’t stay on . data Nada. Apps forced closed. I did mess up and drop my phone . as soon as I realized it I totally apologized a thousand times. I wasn’t the only one he was picking on either. Oh BTW. The ppl on google sent me my pics back. It really wasn’t that bad. . however I have worked on this phone all day. Its still broken I’m not happy. Its a 600 dollar phone. I know google hacked it because they left evidence. I could show you. I’ve had to go thru all my settings and none of them are where there supposed to be. Im pretty sure the 4th amendment would apply here. You have to have a warrant to go thru my things. They could have called me and asked what happened. Instead they ruined my 600 dollar Phone. I would appreciate it if you would help me. I’ve done all I can . please?

  • No Denver, huh?

  • Al-Burrit0

    I want to keep rooting for T-Mobile but every time I look at the coverage map it makes it harder each time…Smh

  • Are they trying to say that actual reception is possible with T-Mobile outside of the SoCal area? I call shenanigans.

  • How is this uncarrier? AT&T and Verizon have already deployed VoLTE and their “XLTE”, or improved LTE service.

  • asten77

    And still, Omaha has no service to speak of despite being the 42nd largest city. Good work, T-Mobile.

    • Julian C. Taborda

      Lol exactly…. 42nd largest city

      • asten77

        You seem confused over how many decent sized cities exist in the us. I suggest you go look at a list. There are many cities smaller which have had service for a decade. No excuse for it at this point. Its 850k people. I travel there enough that its pretty much the only reason I don’t have T-Mobile, even though their service is great here in Chicago.

        • Julian C. Taborda

          No yeah I understand what you mean 100 percent, sometimes living in nyc, and I’m sure Chicago as well, leaves me a little out of touch that the country is in fact quite big with many different markets and locales. I guess we city folk are a little spoiled with the latest and great network tech ;p

          • asten77

            Indeed. It takes a lot of places to make up over 300 million people! 🙂

          • ToddAwesome

            the Oracle of Omaha needs his LTE!

          • asten77

            Oh, I’m not even complaining about no LTE. I’m complaining about almost no 2G and 3G coverage in 2/3rds of the city. LTE is just a pipe dream if they can’t even deploy a simple 2G voice solution.

          • ToddAwesome

            wait till you get indoor plumbing, it’s so good…..so good!

    • Jonathan Williams

      Ask Peyton Manning.

  • Defenestratus

    Sweet… I’m not going to lose my sweet wideband LTE when I move from Orlando to Birmingham next week 😀

  • leftiphone4droid

    How can you be one of the big 4 carriers in the U.S. When the service is only really good in metropolitan cities …. Smh

    • Ray

      When there are only 4 its not that hard to be 4th. Not like they are #1

      • Matthew DiGiacomo

        They are #3.

        • cgalyon

          Which primarily reflects the sad state of cell networks in America.

          • Matthew DiGiacomo

            Lol you are incredibly ignorant.

    • try using your brain

      To the entire “coverage doesn’t exist in rural areas” brigade:

      I live 40 miles south of Minneapolis and get LTE.

      But….but…”Service is only good in….” shut up already you brainless twats.

      Learn that the 100 feet around you does not equal the entirety of the world.

      That’s right. You can actually get good T Mobile speeds and service outside major metro areas. Not all of them, not even close; but most dedicatedly not “only in cities”…morons.

      Go ahead and say they cover less *area* than the others. At least then you’d be right.


      • leftiphone4droid

        LOL….You have the nerves to get on here and tell someone how and what to say, and you get all pissed off about me stating my opinion and then you’re calling people “morons” and “brainless twats” You a lame….here’s some advice for you. Before you get online and try to tell someone what to say, you should check yourself into a clinic for some damn anger management….

      • Robert Boluyt

        Shoot, even if TMO was only good in metropolitan areas, that’s where the majority of people leave. Higher population densities mean higher numbers of potential customers.

      • I’m in the same area! New Prague here. Get LTE coverage all the time. Although I switched to Family Mobile to save a few dollars I only get H+ right now

      • PoisonApple31

        There you go, use an example like Minnesota. You fricken tool, most of that state has coverage with T-Mobile. Look at Wisconsin or better yet Iowa. Do you even know how to read a map much less a coverage map for a carrier?

        • Darkmattr

          What part of Wisconsin are you referring to? SE WI has seen a massive improvement in both coverage and speed in the past year. I got 30mbps inside the hospital the other day whereas on my previous visit you were lucky to maintain a stable EDGE link..

  • Disqus_n00b

    Can someone dig through te marketing speak…will my Nexus 5 access these networks? Wideband and VoLTE?

    • master94

      Depends on what bands tmobile used. If its their 1700 and 1900 than yes but if its the new 700 no

    • AngryBadger
    • AngryBadger

      wait, found another list from press release: http://newsroom.t-mobile.com/issues-insights-blog/t-mobile-brings-voice-over-lte-to-seattle.htm
      LG G Flex, Galaxy Note 3,Galaxy Light and Samsung Galaxy S5.

      “And, VoLTE will be available on a fourth device – the Samsung Galaxy S 5 – in these areas starting tomorrow.”

    • Michael Harrison

      VoLTE no

    • Michael Harrison

      For those of you worried about having to buy a new device, you’ll be glad to know that most of T-Mobile’s current LTE lineup is compatible with the 20+20 network. Any category 4 device, like the Nexus 5, LG G2 and Galaxy Note 3 will be able to take full advantage of the speeds on offer by the 20+20 network. Category 3 devices like iPhone 5/5S/5c, Galaxy S3/S4/Note 2 will be compatible, but, won’t be quite as fast. Still, plenty fast enough. During the keynote they made a point of comparing this with Verizon’s new AWS airwave offerings, which amazingly, aren’t compatible with many of its phones. Of course, the three new devices (Sony Xperia Z1S, LG G Flex and Galaxy Tab 3) are all compatible.

  • Pdiddy187

    Which phones take advantage of both or either of these?

    • Guest

      Looks like the N5 is enjoying some wideband LTE here in Los Angeles.

  • Dave Whyte

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh….. Oh I’m sorry that picture scared the hell out of me….

    • Ray

      Looks like he just did a line.

      • michael arazan

        Dude is starting to have a cocaine personality, swearing on stage, pacing back and forth, how the other carriers are out to get him

      • Jonathan Williams

        Just one?

  • Dulan C. Swagwagon

    Does Rockland County count as Upstate, New York?

  • Stephen

    So, when they say volte in new jersey, do they mean everywhere in new jersey that has lte has volte?

  • Telfon

    What does Upstate, NY even mean??? Cause thats a big ass vague area

    • King of Nynex

      Yeah…upstate NY is home to twelve million people, more than most regular states.

    • shmigga

      Usually they are referring to Buffalo but most people from Buffalo don’t consider themselves in upstate NY since they are in western New York.

      • burkett375

        Syracusian here, (non-native) can confirm no idea what they mean

        • Road

          Southern Tier here (Steuben County), and honestly, the way it always seemed to me when talking to my NYC/LI cousins was Upstate was the directly north of Yonkers stretch, north thru Albany up to Plattsburgh, and then WNY was all of our awesome cities like ROC/BUF/SYR. Binghamton would alternate between UNY & WNY. I don’t know about you guys in SYR or BUF, but folks in Rochester & the Southern Tier seem to always want to correct people and say “we’re Western New York” when it’s brought up. I’ve always ID’ed as WNY myself. I’d welcome you to the WNY brotherhood, Syracusian, if you’d have us. 🙂

          • burkett375

            Haha…everything/everyone around here is Central NY. As an outsider, I always imagine Upstate as everything north of White Plains, then broken into WNY, CNY, Mohawk Valley, and North Country. Then you have to consider Southern Tier, Catskills, Adirondaks, etc. Too many options!

    • tomn1ce

      I live in NYC and I believe that most people here consider upstate NY anything north of Yonkers….that’s pretty much the rest of NY.

      • George264

        Basically anything beyond Manhattan and the rest of the city boroughs. I live in Brooklyn and damn, I would have loved Wideband.

    • argeebee99

      It’s extremely ambiguous… it could mean Buffalo, mentioned earlier, although they are western NY… or it could mean Yonkers, or even Plattsburgh or Watertown!! Anything north of NYC is considered “upstate” for a lot of people.

    • Brandon

      Yea, just like “New Jersey”, it’s only about 150 miles north to south lol

    • m_a_r_t_i_n

      Anything north of 14th Street.
