Mobile first in United States to operate LTE-U network

NewNetworkTile12 Mobile first in United States to operate LTE-U network
Troy Mann | 28 June, 2017, 04:47

T-Mobile today made a couple of network-related announcements. Where the complaints come into play is with network coverage and speed.

Six cities across T-Mobile's network are now running LTE-U. With LTE-U, the company takes advantage of "publicly available 5GHz airwaves" to boost its LTE capacity, giving customers faster speeds all the while.

Back then, operators were hopeful they could introduce LTE-U at least by 2016, but that didn't happen. On the flip side, there is just one compatible smartphone at the moment- Samsung's Galaxy S8.

LTE-U now live in select locations in Bellevue, Wash.; Brooklyn, N.Y.; Dearborn, Mich.; Las Vegas, Nev.; Richardson, Texas; and Simi Valley, Calif. LTE-U will roll out to more locations later in 2017.

In addition to the LTE-U rollout, T-Mobile also announced that it has successfully tested License Assisted Access - a next generation version of LTE-U that also utilizes the 5 GHz band - in field tests for download speeds of up to 741 Mbps, although that technology is still far away from commercial deployments.

In a parallel United States trial, AT&T Mobility has confirmed that it has teamed up with Ericsson to conduct its own live LTE-LAA field tests, reaching initial wireless speeds of more than 650Mbps in downtown San Francisco. "While our competitors scramble to deal with the way unlimited data plans are slowing down their networks, we're already moving on to what's next", said Neville Ray, CTO at T-Mobile. "This means that the fastest LTE network - that's T-Mobile - will only get faster. I hope AT&T and Verizon like eating our dust!" T-Mobile plans to roll out small cells that include LAA technology later this year.

T-Mobile says the move towards LAA is because LAA enables greater carrier aggregation than LTE-U, allowing it combine larger amounts of unlicensed and licensed spectrum and so deliver more bandwidth and faster speeds to customers.
