T-Mobile brings enhanced network to 5 new areas, now up to 100 million people

 

Those who considered T-Mobile out of the game after AT&T’s failed attempt at a buyout may want to start taking another look at the carrier. Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer of T-Mobile, announced today that they’ve now added five new metro areas  to T-Mo’s enhanced network:

  • Chicago, including the surrounding areas of: Aurora, Berwyn, Chicago Heights, Cicero, Des Plaines, Downers Grove, Evanston, Evergreen Park, Naperville, Oak Park, Schaumburg, Wilmette and Winnetka.
  • Reno, Nev.
  • Sacramento, Calif., including the surrounding areas of: Antelope, Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Fair Oaks, Folsom, Loomis, North Highlands, Rancho Cordova, Rio Linda, Rocklin, Roseville, Vacaville and West Sacramento.
  • Fresno, Calif.
  • Southern Calif., including: Alhambra, Anaheim, Claremont, Culver City, El Monte, Encino, Garden Grove, Granada Hills, Inglewood, Irvine, La Crescenta, Laguna Niguel, Monrovia, Monterey Park, Newport Beach, North Hills, North Hollywood, Paramount, Pasadena, Redlands, Reseda, Rosemead, Santa Ana, San Fernando, San Gabriel, Santa Monica, South El Monte, Temple City, Torrance, Upland, Valley Village, Van Nuys, Westminster and Wilmington.

This brings the total number of areas with enhanced coverage to 23, bringing faster data, better signal strength, and better building penetration to 100 million people. That’s a decently large number and definitely a move in the right direction, on top of continued work to bring the same network to some key areas like New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego. Between network modifications, great holiday PR moves, and new ideas for device plans, it’s obvious that (at the very least) T-Mobile isn’t staying stagnant, a good thing for both their customers and the industry.
