Today it was announced that T-Moible will launch 5G in 30 cities by the end of 2018. These markets will include New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Las Vegas. T-Mobiel did not give a full list of cities they will support.
Dish, Charter, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and others have all announced plans to roll out 5G home Internet. Dish and others have said that by the end of 2020 they will have half of the United States covered with 5G home Internet.
T-Mobile is not the only service rolling out 5G. AT&T recently announced that they will roll out 5G to 12 markets by the end of 2018. Verizon also announced that they plan to start rolling out 5G internet in 2018 and Charter is testing 5G in 6 markets around the United States right now.
T-Mobile has not made any promises about speed but according to the earnings call, Verizon’s 5G network has 200 sites online with a peak throughput of 10 Gbps. With that speed, Verizon says with that speed they can give 5G subscribers 1 Gbps to every subscriber wirelessly over the air.
