T-Mobile has expanded 5G coverage and capacity, reaching 323 million people with Extended Range 5G and 260 million people with Ultra Capacity 5G.
T-Mobile is yet to reveal the number of its 5G customers on Extended Range 5G and Ultra Capacity 5G network.
With the achievement, T-Mobile reaches its mid-band 5G year-end goal weeks ahead of schedule and moves closer to its target of covering 300 million people with Ultra Capacity 5G by the end of 2023. The Un-carrier is also adding boosting its Ultra capacity 5G network with a new nationwide layer of mid-band 5G spectrum: 1900 MHz.
“We’re executing on our vision to deliver the highest capacity network this country has ever seen,” said Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile. “We’ve led in 5G coverage from the beginning, delivering a massive 5G footprint that continues to grow.”
T-Mobile has deployed 1900 MHz spectrum — another layer of mid-band 5G — nationwide. T-Mobile has begun lighting up three-carrier aggregation — combining three channels of mid-band 5G spectrum — which in tests produced peak speeds topping 3 Gbps on T-Mobile’s 5G standalone network.
Customers with the Samsung Galaxy S22 smartphone are leveraging the capability in parts of the network now. Three-carrier aggregation will expand nationwide, and be accessible by additional devices, in the near future.
T-Mobile is the leader in 5G with the country’s largest and fastest 5G network. Customers on other networks who want a better experience can try the country’s most-awarded 5G network now for free.
With T-Mobile’s Network Pass, people with unlocked eSIM-compatible phones can experience T-Mobile for three months at no charge with unlimited smartphone data, including 5G.
