T-Mo­bile an­nounced re­cently it up­graded it 4G data and voice cov­er­age in the At­lanta re­gion, in­clud­ing Cov­ing­ton.

The com­pany didn’t spec­ify the “tech­nol­ogy ad­vance­ments” it’s made, but said its sig­nal strength, in-build­ing cov­er­age and voice and data ser­vices have been im­proved.

The com­pany said in a press re­lease that it has more than 500,000 cus­tomers in the At­lanta area and said en­hanced cov­er­age will be seen in Roswell, Al­pharetta, Cov­ing­ton, Cony­ers and Marietta, as well as the Harts­field-Jack­son At­lanta In­ter­na­tional Air­port and the Ge­or­gia Dome.

“Cus­tomers in th­ese metro ar­eas can also bring their un­locked AT&T smart­phones to T-Mo­bile and ex­pe­ri­ence a sig­nif­i­cant speed boost on our net­work,” said Neville Ray, the com­pany’s chief tech­nol­ogy of­fi­cer, in a blog post.

The blog post said in­ter­nal tests of un­locked iPhone 4S de­vices run­ning over 4G (HSPA+) on T-Mo­bile’s 1900 MHz net­work recorded on av­er­age 70 per­cent faster down­load speeds than iPhone 4S de­vices on AT&T’s net­work.
