    Default List of volte and wideband lte markets

    Tmobile announced their volte and wideband lte market. Keep in mind that tmobile is considering 15+15 minimum to be wideband lte now, so you won't get anywhere close to 147mbps that tmobile previously announced on 15+15.


    Here's your list of T-Mobile's Wideband LTE and VoLTE markets | Android Central

    Well, if they're going to VoLTE NY, NY, they're going to do the suburbs upstate...which they already deployed wideband to, it looks like. Maybe T-Mobile is finally coming to my area after all.

    Chicago has volte but no wideband lte?

    makes no sense...

    I don't get how cities can have one or the other, but not both

    Speed wise, the M7 is cat 3,so it cannot take full advantage of 15+15 or 20+20mhz. But you still have some increase, up to 100mbps, plus capacity increase.

    Soon after my post I found an update ready to go, downloaded OTA in less than 10 minutes. We are VOLTE ready here in MN.

    I am in Woodbury and have not received my update yet. I keep checking for a software update and I keep getting "The device is up to date" message. Did you have to do something different? Also, are you seeing an increase in download speed now that we are wideband enabled?

    Wideband will just work if the tower supports it.

    For VoLTE you will only get the update depending on the phone. What phone do you have?

    Galaxy S5. According to everything I have read, if you have a phone that supports VoLTE, and you are in a city that it was expanded to, you should have received an update yesterday. Nothing on my end thus far. Annoying!

    It might just take a little bit. Sometimes they release in batches.

    You can try going to settings, application manager, the all tab, and clearing the Google services framework cache.... Then try to update. This has been shown to work sometimes in the past.

    Updated to nf1, despite losing Root, and got volte in the greater LA area. Clear call with good sound and no static or noise.

    1. They're completely independent
    2. Wideband LTE requires T-Mobile to own enough spectrum in the particular market

    Is the S5 compatible with wideband LTE? I know this is a silly question but I just got mine, did all the updates and I get VoLTE but no wideband LTE and I'm in Tampa one of the markets it's been announced to have deployed. Called T Mobile tech support and they were clueless even talked to there floor manager and made him sound like a stuttering little girl LOL

    You sure you're not on wideband? Where are you looking to check?

    Nothing special needed.. It will just use it when it is there. You can use this dialer code to see what BW you have (example of mine below). It will show 15 if you are on wideband.

    Code - *#0011#

    Yep you're on wideband (15x15). You can see it in the screenshot (see below).

    Speeds can vary due to many factors.. They could still be working on the towers... The speed test server the app chose could be bad.. So many factors.

    As you can see in my previous screenshot I was on 20x20 (that is even faster) and they haven't announced that yet.. So they must be working on the towers. I could tell they were working on the towers because my pings were in the 150+ for about 2 weeks (or a little less) and now I'm seeing that.

    So they're upgrading and working.. You'll probably see faster and faster speeds as they beef it up and get it running at its full capabilities.. The 15x15 signal is there though .

    There still aren't any devices that support that particular 700 mhz band. I'm hoping it can be done with a firmware upgrade, but methinks the FCC might object.

    No worries. As long as you are getting like 15 or more Mbps you'll be able to do whatever. .

    But I agree... Big numbers are nice .
