Spectrum: Collaborating with America’s Broadcasters

Repack News Video 3

When T-Mobile acquired $8 billion of low-band spectrum in April 2017, our expert teams went to work to make spectrum usable for Americans as quickly as possible — it’s what we promised Congress and the FCC. After deploying the world’s first 600 MHz antennas for wireless service in August 2017, our network of 600 MHz antennas is already deployed across 1,000+ cell sites covering hundreds of thousands of square miles. By year-end 2018, we will have well over 10,000 sites on-air. Check out our newest Repack News to learn more.

The FCC carefully crafted a 39-month transition plan for 600 MHz broadcast spectrum. T-Mobile’s $8 billion investment means America’s Un-carrier is ready to work with broadcasters across the country. Check out this video which shows the FCC’s commitment to a ten-phase transition calendar.

Demand for wireless services from T-Mobile customers is skyrocketing. This means that our network teams must build a more densely-populated array of cell sites. These traditional cell sites and newer, small cells, add capacity and coverage for the nation’s fastest 4G network. They are also the foundation for future 5G services — and a boon to local economic development.
