T-Mobile Brings 5G To Around 200 New Cities For iPhone 12
T-Mobile has today announced that it is expanding its mid-range 2.5GHz 5G service by around 200 cities.
This comes just a week after the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 brought 5G to Apple’s userbase.
T-Mobile’s new 5G service will be available in more than 400 cities and towns around the United States, with the company saying that makes it the largest 5G network around.
Largest 5G network? Check. Blazing fast speeds customers can actually find? Check. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced it has nearly doubled the number of cities and towns that get supercharged mid-band 5G, adding even more capacity and superfast speeds to America’s largest nationwide 5G network. Mid-band 2.5 GHz 5G delivers both broad coverage and fast speeds at the same time — and it can even go through walls (looking at you, mmWave!). In places it’s deployed, average download speeds are already around 300 Mbps — that’s 7.5x faster than today’s average LTE speeds — with peak download speeds up to 1 Gbps. With today’s announcement, T-Mobile mid-band 5G reaches nearly 410 cities and towns across the country. The Un-carrier is rolling out mid-band 5G at a furious pace, with plans to cover 100 million people by the end of the year.
Verizon is also making waves, this time with its 5G Home Internet service. Four new cities are coming online with Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, and San Jose starting a rollout on November 5. That will leave the list of cities where the service is available reading Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Sacramento, San Jose, and St. Paul.
The expansion continues. Beginning November 5th, 5G Home Internet will expand to customers in parts of Atlanta, Dallas, Denver and San Jose. The blazing-fast Internet service is now available in parts of 12 markets, building on continued advancements of our 5G technology for customers. The new 5G Home Internet cities come on the heels of the historic expansion of 5G Ultra Wideband1 in 19 additional US cities, 19 stadiums and six airports, along with our Nationwide 5G launch.
5G has seen a renewed focus following the announcement of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro lineups earlier this month and carriers are now pushing to make sure that their networks can cope with the load as well as ensuring as many customers can enjoy 5G as possible.
