In recent years T-Mobile has significantly improved their LTE technology and they continue to do so on a regular basis. T-Mobile has been testing their carrier aggregation technology across three different spectrum bands. T-Mobile’s most recent attempt to enhance the speed and performance of their LTE technology is called “LTE-U“.
The implementation of this new LTE-U technology will increase the speed and overall performance of their LTE service.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be one of the fastest smartphones that have ever been made.
The speed of the Galaxy S8 coupled with the new LTE-U technology creates the potential for an amazing user experience.
The LTE-U speed will pave the way to the new Gigabit LTE technology. On The Samsung Galaxy 8, users will be able to automatically tap into the first 20 MHz of unused unlicensed spectrum of 5 GHZ. The LTE-U will use the least congested channels and it will go back and forth until it finds the least congested spectrum.
When this occurs the stream will be faster and much more efficient because there will never be any congestion. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ users will be the first ones to get access to this new technology. T-Mobile recently stated that these users will be able to tap into the AWS-3 spectrum, and this is faster and better.
Metro PCS and T-Mobile customers can pre-order the Galaxy S8 and S8+ on T-Mobile’s website right now. If you pre-order for $30/month on the T-Mobile’s Installment plan ($30 down, FRP: $750), customers will get FREE Gear VR with controller and Oculus content. That’s a $180 value, MetroPCS customers will get the same VR deal if they purchase the Galaxy S8 when it’s released on April 21.
If you’re a smartphone enthusiast who is due for an upgrade and you’re planning on buying a new phone sometime soon. You should strongly consider the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+.
