The Galaxy S23 (pictured here) looks pretty attractive right now, don't you think?  - T-Mobile enables 3.3 Gbps (theoretical) speeds on Samsung Galaxy S23, other devices to follow

T-Mobile enables (theoretical) 3.3Gbps speeds on Samsung Galaxy S23, other devices to follow

If you’ve been keeping tabs on all those independent reports and studies from companies like Opensignal, RootMetrics, Ookla, and umlaut over the past couple of years, you’re probably already well aware of T-Mobile’s massive lead over the competition in 5G speeds nationwide.

But while the most recent tests place the “Un-carrier” download average at between 150 and 200 Mbps, the second-largest wireless service provider in the United States (by number of subscribers) has a much larger number to show off today. Specifically, 3.3 Gbps. Or rather Moreover of 3.3Gbps.

Ready, Steady, Fly!!!

Believe it or not, T-Mo claims you Should being able to experience such a mind-blowing speed score every day now…as long as you are using the Samsung Galaxy S23. Oddly, Magenta makes no mention of S23’s Plus and Ultra-branded siblings in today’s four-carrier aggregation announcement, which may simply be an omission by the operator.
After all, the three members of Samsung’s high-end smartphone family released in early 2023 share the exact same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which should allow them to benefit from the same connectivity upgrades at the same time.
Simply put, quad-carrier aggregation means (just as the name suggests) that T-Mobile is combining four 5G channels on the same phone to deliver (vastly) improved speeds over what was previously thought possible. Of course, this innovation era previously thought possible, enabling aggregate speeds of over 3.3Gbps on the S23 in a public test a few months ago.
The groundbreaking technology is now ready to roll out to the masses, starting with the aforementioned Galaxy S23 and continuing with other no-name devices (cough, iPhone 14 series, cough) at some point in the near future.

As much a specialist in metaphors as he is in 5G network advances and upgrades, T-Mo is drawing a very easy-to-understand parallel between its breakthrough in four-carrier aggregation and taking “four separate highways” and turning them into a “huge superhighway where traffic can get bigger faster than before.”

Keep your expectations realistic!

This particular group of “highways” consists of two 2.5GHz 5G Ultra Capacity channels, one 1900MHz channel, and one 600MHz spectrum channel, creating an incredibly advanced combination of blazingly fast and super-efficient cellular technologies that Verizon and AT&T simply can’t match or compete at the moment.

While it’s clearly extremely unlikely that you’ll actually get 3.3Gbps speeds from your S23 in real life anytime soon, this is just the latest in a long line of pioneering moves that all but guarantee your phone Want be faster on T-Mobile than on any other carrier in the US.

Incredibly enough, T-Mo remains the only carrier in the nation with a standalone 5G network without which these speeds would never have been possible (even on paper and in tests done in controlled environments).

As such, “Un-carrier” can “drive towards” a “true” 5G-only customer experience… which sadly remains a distant and utopian dream in many parts of the country. A 5G signal, of course, is easily attainable just about everywhere these days, with T-Mobile boasting near-ubiquitous coverage of 326 million people over two million square miles.

The 5G Ultra Capacity availability numbers are equally impressive, with 275 million people right now and a target of 300 million “this year,” but sadly, while some users are indeed able to break the 1Gbps barrier on a daily basis on their ultra-premium phones, many others have to regularly settle for scores below 100Mbps and even below 10Mbps, resulting in the aforementioned Ookla or Opensignal averages not exceeding 200Mbps .
