T-Mobile activates America’s Nationwide 5G Network

T-Mobile activates America’s First Nationwide 5G Network

T-Mobile recently announced launched and activated America’s nationwide 5G network. The network covers around 5,000 cities and towns and 200 Million people.

The announcement noted that Verizon previously launched its own version of 5G (5GTF) while AT&T's 5G is the enablement of the existing LTE network. T-Mobile claimed that its 5G network is based on real, standards-based 5G. The standard 5G on 600 MHz spectrum avoids limitations of the carriers’ 5G.

Executive Opinion

CEO of T-Mobile, John Legere, said, "5G is here on a nationwide scale. This is a HUGE step towards 5G for All. While Dumb and Dumber focus on 5G for the (wealthy) Few, launching in just a handful of cities — and forcing customers into their most expensive plans to get 5G — we’re committed to building broad, deep nationwide 5G that people and businesses can access at no extra cost with the New T-Mobile … and today is just the start of that journey.”

T-Mobile President of Technology, Neville Ray, said, "The carriers have been over-hyping 5G for years now, setting expectations beyond what they can deliver. When Verizon says #5GBuiltRight, they must mean sparse, expensive and limited to outdoors only. Meanwhile at T-Mobile, we built 5G that works for more people in more places, and this is just the start. With the New T-Mobile, we’ll see 5G speeds follow the same path as LTE, increasing exponentially over time. Plus, real broad and deep 5G will unleash whole new categories of innovation that will touch almost every area of the economy. The 5G future is bright, and it starts today."

T-Mobile and 5G network

T-Mobile is also offering two new 5G superphones, namely OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren and the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G. These smartphones can leverage 600 MHz 5G network where available along with T-Mobile’s advanced nationwide LTE network elsewhere.

Also, these phones are capable of connecting Sprint’s 5G spectrum (2.5 GHz) when available from the New T-Mobile if the merger closes. If the merger with Sprint closes, the New T-Mobile will be able to build on this foundation to deliver transformational broad and deep 5G for All.

The company also published a zoomable 5G map.
