T-Mobile is planning to use a 1900MHz spectrum for a network that will allow iPhone users access to 4G speeds.
“As part of the company’s network modernization effort, T-Mobile also plans to launch 4G HSPA+ service in the 1900 MHz band in a large number of markets by the end of the year,” the company said in a statement. “Rolling out 4G HSPA+ services in the 1900 MHz band will also provide customers with the ability to use a broader range of devices, including the iPhone, on T-Mobile’s 4G network.”
“A nice side benefit of the refarming effort is that our 4G network will be compatible with a broader range of devices, including the iPhone. The other important benefit of our network modernization effort is the coverage improvements it will deliver, especially when it comes to in-home coverage. As we refarm our 1900 spectrum, we will continue to fully support our customers with 2G devices,” Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer of T-Mobile said in March.
Also, the company announced that we will see an iPhone compatible with 4G frequency bands by 2013.
