iPhone 5 on T-Mobile LTE

As we all know the iPhone 5 was just announced. The bad news is that T-Mobile is not an official carrier yet again. The good news however is that the iPhone 5 will work on T-Mobile’s LTE network.

LTE is super fast, and probably faster than most people’s home Wifi. T-Mobile is in the process of upgrading all of their towers to the 1900MHz spectrum. Some of those towers are already live. I personally have already connected my iPhone 4S to a T-Mobile 1900MHz tower and was able to get really fast speeds.

T-Mobile expects to have all of their towers upgraded by the end of the year. This is great news for people currently on T-Mobile and for those thinking about switching!

    T-Mobile doesn’t have LTE. They will most likely never have LTE. They have beefed up 3G that they are trying to pass off as “4G’.
