This week T-Mobile announced that they had completed the next step into the world of 5G. This week they successfully tested a 5G call on the 600 MHz range. This will allow T-Mobile to offer 5G speeds in a larger area by using the 600 MHz range to fill in gaps that would be left by other 5G networks.
“This is a huge accomplishment for Neville and his team, who had a vision for nationwide 5G and are building it out the right way – across multiple spectrum bands,” said John Legere, Chief Executive Officer of T-Mobile. “While the other guys focus on 5G millimeter wave on a handful of blocks in a handful of cities, we’re building 5G for everyone, everywhere! And together with Sprint, we’ll add much-needed spectrum depth, creating a truly transformative 5G network!”
“We share the vision of T-Mobile to make 5G services available to everyone across the United States,” said Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Business Area Networks at Ericsson. “We will continue to work closely together as 5G partners, testing possibilities and reaching new milestones.”
“5G will power vibrant new use cases that span across network, client and cloud—spurring the convergence of computing and communications that will enable exciting use cases ranging from virtual and augmented reality and gaming, to smart cities, connected cars and intelligent data analytics,” said Sandra Rivera, senior vice president, Network Platform Group, Intel. “This collaboration with Ericsson and T-Mobile conducted over low-band spectrum and using the Intel® 5G Mobile Trial Platform is a major milestone on the path to enabling the first wave of these types of 5G experiences.”
T-Mobile still plans to roll out 5G home internet and cellular use later on in 2019.
