T-Mobile specific Moto G spotted in FCC filing

moto-g-official_01

Motorola’s Moto G was announced without any LTE or CDMA bands which left support for just a few GSM frequencies; bands 850/900/1900/2100. Now, if you keep up with which carriers use which bands in the US, you’d know that the only support you’d get with T-Mobile with the Moto G would be in areas that had refarmed 1900 MHz coverage. Unfortunately, that’s not the majority of T-Mobile’s coverage, so at first glance it seems like the Moto G wouldn’t be an attractive option for T-Mobile customers.

However, thanks to some FCC filings, there appears to be another version of the device that supports those four GSM bands, plus WCDMA bands 850/1700/1900 which would allow the Moto G to work on T-Mobile’s 3G network. Obviously this is just an FCC filing, so it doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but keep your fingers crossed if you’re a T-Mobile customer that wants Motorola’s latest budget device.
