Enhanced Coverage: T-Mobile Unveils Coolpad Surf – the 600 MHz hotspot

T-Mobile has launched the first-ever 600 MHz hotspot, the Coolpad Surf, for just $3 per month for 24 months plus a data plan.

This pocket-sized hotspot from Coolpad Americas gives you reliable speed and coverage on the go, whether you’re in a less populated area, traveling the country… or just need to distract your backseat drivers.

The Coolpad Surf taps into T-Mobile’s 600 MHz LTE, now available in more than 2,700 cities and towns across 43 states and Puerto Rico. That’s a game-changer for Americans as 600 MHz LTE offers even more LTE coverage and capacity to T-Mobile’s network. And because the signal travels twice as far from the tower and works four times better in buildings than mid-band, 600 MHz LTE offers better coverage — even in more rural areas.

“The Coolpad Surf joins an impressive lineup of 600 MHz capable devices at T-Mobile — we went from zero devices to 29 in just over a year with phones, tablets, IoT devices and now, a hotspot,” said Neville Ray, CTO of T-Mobile. “Now, along with 600 MHz adding more coverage and more capacity, T-Mobile customers continue to get more choice. And we’re just getting started.”

T-Mobile swept the FCC’s Broadcast Incentive Auction in April 2017, winning a massive haul of super-premium low band spectrum to cover every American across the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

After receiving its spectrum licenses from the FCC, the Un-carrier began lighting up its 600 MHz network in only two months, and in September 2017, T-Mobile announced the first-ever 600 MHz device – the LG V30. Since then, the company has blown out its 600 MHz capable device roster. All these choices on the nation’s fastest LTE network… more reasons T-Mobile customers are the happiest in wireless, two years running.

The Coolpad Surf features:

• A 2150 mAh battery that lasts up to 48 hours on standby or for 5.3 hours of continuous use and can be used with up to 15 devices at once
• A sleek, lightweight and portable design measuring only 4.29 x 2.64 x 0.63 inches
• LED indicators and control panel with key statistics including battery life
• Support for Band 71 (600 MHz LTE) along with 4G LTE Bands 2, 4 and 66, and 3G Bands 1, 2 and 4

Starting today, T-Mobile customers – including T-Mobile for Business — can get a Coolpad Surf on T-Mobile’s interest-free Equipment Installment Plan for $0 down and just $3 per month for 24 months (FRP: $72). Data plans start at $10 per month with AutoPay for 2GB high-speed data. If you need more, T-Mobile has tiered plans that go up to 22 GB high-speed data for $85 per month with AutoPay.
