T-Mobile US boss suggests 700MHz 4G is imminent in NYC

2 Jun 2015

T-Mobile US has reportedly signed agreements with broadcasters to clear Channel 51 interference on its 700MHz A block spectrum in the New York City area, paving the way for a commercial launch. Fierce Wireless, quotes CEO John Legere, who told social media users: ‘We just signed some deals today to clear Channel 51 700[MHz spectrum] in New York, so that’s going to go through the roof’. Deploying 700MHz spectrum in New York will enhance T-Mobile’s existing Long Term Evolution (LTE) coverage and provide stronger in-building penetration in a city famous for its high population density and large skyscrapers.
