T-Mobile’s carrier update to enable LTE has been “hacked” to increase “the amount of bandwidth allowing for better throughput of data and data connection” on the iPhone 5. Although Apple released an update that was supposed to improve speeds for users of unlocked iPhone 5s running on T-Mobile’s network, some users reported negative signal and speed changes following its installation. The increased speed update works on both versions of the iPhone 5, and no jailbreak is required to download the enhanced update. Instructions on how to install the update can be found within the initial report at TmoNews.
