Just two weeks after launching its first 600 MHz LTE sites, T-Mobile announced it will carry the LG V30 – the newly launched and world’s first smartphone to support 600 MHz LTE.

LG's V30 premium smartphone which was unveiled last week by the company improves on the strengths of the V series phones in providing a whole new mobile experience and offering optimal multimedia features. 

The LG V30 will be the world’s first smartphone to support LTE on 600 MHz as well as other spectrum bands available from T-Mobile, and the Un-carrier plans to launch LG’s latest flagship nationwide this fall.

In addition to expanding and strengthening its LTE network with 600 MHz spectrum, T-Mobile announced plans earlier this year for a nationwide 5G network on this super-premium low-band spectrum. By deploying Ericsson’s new radio equipment, T-Mobile is making 600 MHz LTE available today while building a seamless path to 5G on 600 MHz. 

When it’s time to launch 5G technology for consumers, the Operator said it can upgrade this already-deployed 5G-ready equipment via software update, effectively turning on 5G on 600 MHz with the flip of a switch without having to touch towers twice.

T-Mobile plans to continue deploying LTE on 600 MHz at a fast pace, starting in rural America and markets across more than 1.2 million square miles where the spectrum is already clear today. .

Smartphones are coming, we just lit up another location with LTE on 600 MHz... AND we’re laying a foundation for nationwide 5G at the same time. The Carriers must get tired of T-Mobile continually running circles ‘round them!

Borje Ekholm, President and CEO, Ericsson
The US has hit another milestone with the historic rollout of 5G-ready technology in record-breaking time. The work we’re doing with T-Mobile on its low-band spectrum is paving the way for 5G in rural America and nationwide.
