They currently support multiple bands in similar frequency ranges as other carriers some lower some higher. Their new push is the very low 600mhz band.
Note: The Ridgetec Lookout Dual modem supports this band. Technically we can use it but nearly all 4G LTE antennas do not support this 600mhz range. An additional/optional T-Mobile 4G/5G antenna will be required get reception at this frequency. If you search the market there are just not many antennas that do this but we may he able to find one. It would not ship in the box but be an optional booster antenna
T-Mobile will work just fine without
Band 71 (do not be confused)
Band 71 (600mz)
The LTE Band 71 band plan – B71 (600 MHz) - comprises 84 MHz bandwidth of contiguous 600 MHz spectrum and is a specific configuration of the 617 to 698 MHz band, pegged to be the most efficient spectrum arrangement to cater for mobile broadband systems.
T-Mobile calls this band Extended 4G LTE
. These longer wavelengths seem to penetrate buildings, walls, forests etc better than the high frequencies. This is what makes this technology exciting not only for the current Ridgetec Lookout Dual 4G LTE cameras but also future Ridgetec models with 5G modems.
Your next question: Will it be possible to upgrade our Ridgetec Lookout from 4G to 5G. The answer is technically yes but if we find that to support 5G speeds we must reengineer the main board for faster processors, more memory etc then we may not offer an upgrade. (ie. send us your camera and for a fee we unplug 4G modem and plug in a 5G modem). Most likely there will be main board upgrades required to support the new faster speeds making an upgrade a bad idea. I will still try as hard as I can to offer this if in testing I get good results.
