T-Mobile rolls out more low band LTE in over 100 markets

Low frequency spectrum, like the 600MHz and 700MHz airwaves owned by T-Mobile, can travel farther and penetrate buildings better than the high frequency kind. And according to the carrier’s CTO Neville Ray, T-Mobile added more “lowband LTE” to hundreds of sites in just the last two weeks. The rollout includes a mix of both 600MHz and 700MHz spectrum. You might recall that last April, the company spent nearly $8 billion to win 31MHz of 600MHz airwaves in an FCC auction.

In addition to expanding its low band LTE presence, T-Mobile has also plans on employing some of its 600MHz spectrum for …

The Galaxy S9 will feature a “reimagined” variable aperture camera, faster chipset, and new color options, but all that jazz won’t come cheap, it seems. Dovetailing with a renowned leakster’s tip that the S9 and S9+ may be the most expensive Galaxy S-line phones ever, comes one unnamed “source in the UK mobile phone deals industry,” who informs us of the same:

You can expect the S9 to cost £100 more than the Galaxy S8 when it was released last year. The truth is that last year’s massively inflated smartphone prices on handsets like the S8, Note 8 and iPhone X have …

Switch to MetroPCS and get 4 lines of unlimited LTE data for $100

MetroPCS, a T-Mobile prepaid brand since 2013, has a tempting offer for anyone willing to ditch a competing US carrier in 2018. If you switch to MetroPCS and port-in your number, you can get four lines of unlimited monthly LTE data, talk, and text for $100 – that’s just $25 per line. You can even add a 5th line at just $25 per month, but not a 6th one. There’s a downside to all this, as tethering (aka sharing your internet connection) is not available. Even so, we’d say this is a nice deal for families.  
If you don’t need four lines of service, MetroPCS …
