T-Mobile to start rollout of nationwide mobile 5G in 2019

Wednesday 3 May 2017 | 07:00 CET | News
T-Mobile announced plans to start a 5G rollout in 2019 and aims to reach full nationwide coverage in 2020. The operator will expand and strengthen its LTE coverage and use a portion of its USD 8 billion mother lode of low-band 600 MHz spectrum to deliver 5G coverage from coast to coast. On top of its nationwide deployment, T-Mobile 5G will enable high bandwidth and massive throughput in urban areas using a combination of mid-band and millimeter wave spectrum. T-Mobile expects to deploy 5G in its low-band 600 MHz spectrum quickly across its existing nationwide macro network.
