T-Mobile brings faster 5G speeds to over 200 cities with expanded mid-band coverage

T-Mobile brings faster 5G speeds to over 200 cities with expanded mid-band coverage

In September, T-Mobile announced the rollout of its 2.5GHz mid-band 5G coverage to 81 new cities and town across the U.S. Starting today, the carrier is expanding its mid-band coverage to over 200 more cities and towns, bringing T-Mobile one step closer toward its goal of reaching 100 million people with mid-band 5G by the end of 2020.

The timing of T-Mobile’s expansion comes after Apple’s recent release of its 5G-equipped iPhone 12 series. While 5G was a thing long before the arrival of Apple’s new devices, the iPhone 12 series is expected to take the technology mainstream. T-Mobile acquired a bunch of mid-band 5G spectrum following its merger with Sprint last year, so it’s well-equipped for a large-scale rollout now that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are available.

“T-Mobile has more mid-band spectrum than anyone else,” said Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile. “We’re the only ones building a transformational 5G network built on dedicated — not shared — airwaves. And that means only T-Mobile is capable of making the world’s best 5G network a reality.”

The carrier’s wider rollout of its mid-band 5G network combines with its widely available 600Mhz low-band network and its limited, yet ultra-fast mmWave network. T-Mobile considers its 2.5GHz network to be the “goldilocks” of its 5G spectrum because it brings faster speeds compared to LTE and low-band 5G while also offering superior coverage to mmWave, which can be limited by obstacles such as buildings. This “layer cake” approach allows T-Mobile to offer a comprehensive network that consumers won’t find anywhere else.

T-Mobile says that, in places where its mid-band 5G is already deployed, average download speeds are around 300 Mbps, while peak download speeds reach up to 1 Gbps. After today, nearly 410 cities and towns in the U.S. will have access to this coverage.
