T-Mobile 5G: America's First Nationwide 5G Network it's claimed
Dec 2, 2019
T-Mobile lights up the first nationwide 5G network, first nationwide prepaid 5G with Metro by T-Mobile and first 5G devices that work nationwide, ushering in a new era of 5G accessibility and affordability in first step toward 5G for All with New T-Mobile.
What's the news
America gets its first nationwide 5G network today, covering more than 200 million people and more than 1 million square miles, marking a critical first step and foundation for the New T-Mobile.
Why it matters
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.
Who it's for
Early adopters looking for a cost effective 5G phone that will work indoors and out, across the country.
Bellevue, Washington — December 2, 2019 — It’s on! T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today 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. Today’s launch immediately catapults T-Mobile into the leadership position as the country’s biggest 5G network, covering more than 1 million square miles, much of that in rural America. But today is just the start. 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.
T-Mobile execs have fun lighting up America’s first nationwide 5G network
Two new 5G superphones, the exclusive OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren and the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G, are available for pre-order today at www.t-mobile.com/devices/5g-phones and in T-Mobile stores on December 6. Both 5G superphones tap into the Un-carrier’s 600 MHz 5G network where available and T-Mobile’s advanced nationwide LTE network elsewhere. Plus, both are ready to use Sprint’s 5G spectrum (2.5 GHz) when available from the New T-Mobile if the merger closes. To celebrate the launch, customers can get the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren for FREE with 24 bill credits when they switch to T-Mobile and trade in an eligible phone … or, get a Note10+ 5G for FREE with 24 bill credits when they buy another and add a line (two for new customers).
Metro by T-Mobile will launch America’s first nationwide prepaid 5G on December 6. Because what good is advanced technology if not everyone — absolutely everyone — can get it?
“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.”
