With VoLTE, you can make or receive calls on our nationwide, amazingly fast 4G LTE network.
T-Mobile's advanced 4G LTE network is smoking fast! With incredible speed, you can do more using our nationwide 4G LTE network. Once you're registered on our 4G LTE network, you can take advantage of incredibly fast download speeds. To use 4G LTE, you'll need a phone that supports the frequencies we use.*
Wideband LTE, deployed in over 120 metro areas, delivers up to 50% faster LTE speeds. If you're in an area served by Wideband LTE, you can expect blazing fast speeds because of our expanded capacity.
Check our 4G LTE markets to see if you're covered.
Frequencies: Band 2 (1900 MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz), Band 12 (700 MHz)
With 4G, theoretical maximum download speeds range from 21 Mbps up to 42 Mbps. Once you're registered on our 4G network, you can take advantage of incredibly fast download speeds, and even use voice and data services at the same time. To use 4G, you'll need a phone that supports the frequencies we use.
Frequencies: Band 2 (1900 MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz)
With 3G, theoretical maximum download of 14 Mbps. With 3G, you can use voice and data services simultaneously. To use 3G, you'll need a phone that supports the frequencies we use.**
Frequencies: Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz)
EDGE, our enhanced 2G service, delivers a theoretical maximum download speed of 236 kbps. GPRS, our 2G service, delivers a theoretical maximum download speed of 114 kbps. Typical speeds are between 35 kbps and 45 kbps. Keep in mind, voice and data services cannot work simultaneously when on GPRS or EDGE.**
Frequencies: Band 2 (1900 MHz)
Data speeds vary depending on its operating system, processor, battery life, running applications, peak theoretical speeds, and distance from the cell site. USB laptop sticks almost always offer higher speeds than smartphones, because they use the power of a laptop with larger batteries, processors, and other technologies. Also, downloading information is faster than uploading. There is no way to predict an exact speed with so many factors affecting your experience.
*Not all LTE frequencies are available in all T-Mobile coverage areas.
**For the best experience, we recommend using streaming services over 4G and 4G LTE.
