LTE-M(CAT-M1) bandwidth in T-Mobile


I found the following URL which describes the bandwidth used by 4G LTE.

Frequencies that can provide LTE:
  Band 2 (1900 MHz)
  Band 5 (850 MHz)
  Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz)
  Band 66 (Extension of band 4 on 1700/2100 MHz).

For LTE-M (CAT-M1), which bandwidth will be used? Thanks.

That would depend on location and how much is allocated for.LTE.vs. 3g, 2g or 5g.

Eg.  LA county has 15x15 B2, 20x20 B4, 5x5 B12, 10x10 B71, and 40MHz for B41



15x15 MHz n71 5g

100MHZ  n41 5g


Other locations have different allocation based on MTA/BTA licenses.


I’m not aware of which is used for lte-m  you'll be more likely to find low power 5g

LTE CAT M-1 requires 1 Mbps upload and download capacity. It could be run on any of T-Mobile’s LTE bands.
