T-Mobile today said its 600 MHz LTE is available in some 900 cities and towns across some 32 states. T-Mobile's 600 MHz spectrum, also known as Band 71, is being added to more and more phones. Right now Band 71 is available in six devices, with a dozen more expected to launch by the end of the year. The low-band LTE from T-Mobile competes with the 700 MHz spectrum being used by AT&T and Verizon Wireless. T-Mobile has said it will use Band 71 for some 5G services later this year. Further, the company said it plans to deploy LTE in Band 71 in Puerto Rico this fall. "T-Mobile’s strong commitment to Puerto Rico goes beyond hurricane recovery," said Jorge Martel, Vice President and General Manager of T-Mobile Puerto Rico. "We will continue to invest in the island’s future and in our network to expand and enhance LTE coverage."

T-Mobile not on B12?

From the article: "The low-band LTE from T-Mobile competes with the 700 MHz spectrum being used by AT&T and Verizon Wireless"

Compete??? Does this mean T-Mobile no longer hold B12 spectrum?
No... ATT/Verizon are B17 and B13 respectively.

Band 17 is a subset of Band 12. So I think that is what they mean by "competes".

TMobile's B12 has no plans of going away anytime soon.

Edit...Clarified...Fixed mistakes
