The news was announced in a blog post by CTO Neville Ray highlighting the operator's latest network achievements. He said the video shown above was taken in the company's labs with an unrevealed, and now unreleased, smartphone. Considering T-Mobile had a grand total of zero people covered under their LTE network just 3 years ago and 304 million people covered back in 2015, T-Mobile's network modernization is one of the fastest and most impressive for the notoriously slow evolving wireless telecom industry. The company was able to get download speeds to that phone as high as 979 Mbps on its current LTE network, through the use of three carrier aggregation, 4×4 MIMO and 256 QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation).

Ray also offered T-Mobile's thoughts on future 5G networks. He admits that it will still be "several more years" before those kinds of networks are widely available to smartphone owners. In the announcement, T-Mobile claims they've demonstrated mobile speeds up to 1.8Gbps, fixed speeds up to 12Gbps with latency under 2ms, 8×8 MIMO, and the capability of streaming four 4K video streams simultaneously. Neville Ray touts that T-Mobile "will absolutely be first to Gigabit speeds", and he teased that with a video that shows T-Mo achieving almost 1Gbps LTE speeds in the lab using three-carrier aggregation, 4×4 MIMO, and 256 QAM on a mystery unreleased handset. Additionally, Ray reported the Un-carrier's Extended Range LTE - which he said works better in buildings and extends out father from the tower than traditional LTE - now covers 250 million people in more than 500 metropolitan areas.
