T-Mobile Announces Plans for 5G Internet

Mid age woman sitting at table5G is currently the closest thing to a holy grail for Internet customers. With the promises of fiber Internet speeds over the air, it could revolutionize both home and mobile Internet.

So why is 5G so important? Currently if you want to rollout a new home Internet service you have to physically run wires to each house in town. Not only is that time consuming, it is expensive. Now with 5G you could do what used to take years in just a few months and for a fraction of the cost.

5G also won’t only mean fast speeds but also low latency, which will allow you to use wireless Internet just like you do at home. The best part is the lower latency means mobile devices won’t have to work as hard to keep a connection, allowing you to conserve battery power.

Currently Verizon, AT&T, Google, Charter, and Dish all have 5G networks in the works. Now T-Mobile has announced that it will also start rolling out a 5G network.

T-Mobile recently spent a lot of money to buy new spectrum that will allow T-Mobile 5G to have increased range and will be comparable to any other network on the market today. That will allow T-Mobile 5G to be available almost anywhere you go.

T-Mobile has its target rollout to begin in 2019 with the goal of a 2020 full nationwide rollout. This rollout should go faster than the 4G rollout. Back when 4G started to rollout cellphone companies had to run fiber to each tower. Now fiber already is at the tower, they can just upgrade the hardware on the tower and have 5G ready to go.

2020 seems to be the goal for most companies, but Verizon is getting a little bit of a head start. They have a goal of having 5G available in several markets by the end of 2017.

Hopefully the 5G rollout goes smoothly because it will for the first time bring true competition to the world of home Internet.

    5G is all about carriers getting data requests fulfilled as fast as possible to serve the next in que and not so much about end user speeds the way its being presented.
