BELLEVUE, Washington — T-Mobile lit up the country’s first nationwide 5G network, covering more than 200 million people and more than 5,000 cities and towns all across the country.
“5G is here on a nationwide scale. This is a HUGE step towards 5G for All,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “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.”
5G on 600 MHz spectrum goes far beyond the limitations of the carriers’ 5G. With clear 600 MHz spectrum reserved for 5G, T-Mobile is uniquely positioned to deliver 5G that covers more people in more places. Together with Sprint, the New T-Mobile has even bigger plans to supercharge 5G, with a broad and deep network for all Americans.
T-Mobile’s 5G network:
- T-Mobile’s 5G is based on real, standards-based 5G.
- T-Mobile’s network covers more than 60% of the population across more than 1 million square miles, much of that in rural America.
- T-Mobile’s 5G network covers 200 million people and more than 5,000 towns.
- T-Mobile’s 5G goes through walls.
- Anyone with a capable device can get 5G from T-Mobile, including businesses and consumers as well as postpaid and prepaid customers.
- 5G access costs the same as LTE at T-Mobile.
