T-Mobile Starts Building Low-Band Wireless Network in the Sticks


T-Mobile last week announced that it has begun the long-anticipated rollout of its new 600-MHz LTE premium low-band spectrum network in Cheyenne, Wyoming, kicking off a massive rollout designed to provide wireless coverage to rural communities across the United States. T-Mobile acquired about 45 percent of the low-band spectrum licenses the FCC made available two months ago. It spent about $8 billion to gain access to millions of potential wireless customers in small communities where access to wireless and broadband coverage has been limited.

T-Mobile Fined $48M for Pulling Wool Over Customers' Eyes


The United States Federal Communications Commission on Wednesday announced that T-Mobile has agreed to a penalty of $48 million for misleading customers about restrictions on its so-called unlimited data plans. The company failed to inform subscribers to unlimited plans on its wireless networks and those of MetroPCS, which it owns, that their data bandwidth would be throttled when they hit a preset ceiling. Through its advertising and statements, T-Mobile may have led customers to expect better and faster service than their unlimited plans actually provided, according to the FCC.
