Samsung Galaxy S8 Speed Test on T-Mobile’s LTE Network
In its Bellevue lab, T-Mobile reached gigabit-class LTE speeds using the new Samsung Galaxy S8.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the first smartphones ever to simultaneously harness the power of three advanced LTE technologies already built in to the T-Mobile network—including 4×4 MIMO, carrier aggregation and 256 QAM. Only the Un-carrier’s network has this trifecta of speed-boosting technologies. T-Mobile achieved a global first with the rollout of 4×4 MIMO last year, and has launched more LTE Advanced technologies than anyone else in the industry. In addition, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be the very first devices that enable T-Mobile customers to use LTE-U to tap into underutilized unlicensed spectrum on the 5 GHz band. T-Mobile already has more capacity per subscriber than AT&T and Verizon, and the addition of LTE-U will only extend that lead and further improve the Un-carrier’s blazing-fast speeds. And, LTE-U will make it possible for T-Mobile to bring its forthcoming Gigabit LTE to more places across the country.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be twice as fast in hundreds of cities on T-Mobile’s Advanced LTE Network. Learn more about the technology here: https://newsroom.t-mobile.com/news-and-blogs/samsung-galaxy-s8-preorder-amazingness-and-ludicrous-lte-speeds.htm
