T-Mobile Plans to Bring 5G Internet to 200 Million Americans By The End of 2019
“5G is the most transformative technology of our lifetime – faster speeds, better coverage, real-time responses, more connections,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “It’ll dramatically change our mobile experience, fuel brand new experiences and drive billions in economic growth and jobs, but only if everyone can get access to broad, deep 5G. At T-Mobile, we’re on a mission to bring 5G to everyone, and together with Sprint, the New T-Mobile can make sure that the entire country can benefit meaningfully from the future of wireless.”
T-Mobile says the 5G network will be built on the 600 MHz that will become the foundation for broad and deep 5G networks. This news comes as a growing number of companies start rolling out 5G including AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. For now, this network seems to be focused on mobile internet but T-Mobile has announced plans to build a 5G home internet service that will take on traditional home internet providers like cable and DSL.
T-Mobile did not announce an exact date for when the network will go live but time is running out if they hope to have 200 million Americans covered by the end of 2019.
