Viewfinder: T-Mobile doubles capacity

T-Mobile is doubling the capacity of its Parker, AZ tower, upgrading ahead of the winter season when Parker’s resident numbers swell to many times the number of full-time residents. The work has been carried out with a 200-foot crane near the intersection of 8th Street and Desert Avenue in Parker, and affecting the signal for T-Mobile customers for many miles around.

  12. All upgrades being done to T-Mobile Towers are with 4G LTE. Yes you will have 4G LTE in that area once conpleted. It is also located within an area where T-Mobile has licensing for newer technology that allows the towers to shoot at least twice the distance they currently do. Enjoy!

    Those are band 12 antennas. Or what T-Mobile calls Extended LTE. You might need a new phone to use it though.

    I have a galaxy s4. I just started getting 4g in Havasu 5 or 6 months ago.

  15. Throw away your phone
    Talk to your neighbors!!!

  16. When will this be completed and go into affect?

  17. Not certain about that John. You may need to call T-Mobile about that. I know it took a while for AT&T to bring theirs online even after the work up the tower was completed.
