You may be asking yourself, “Why T-Mobile’s 5G?” That’s an easy answer we’ll cover here so you know how T-Mobile’s 5G benefits you. SPOILER ALERT: You may not know everything you think you know about what you can do with 5G.
How does it work?
The biggest advantage of T-Mobile’s 5G is speed. It works by using High, Mid, and Low band frequencies that have different uses. High-band frequencies give you super-fast speeds in small areas. Mid-band gives you a balance of speeds and distance over a broad area. Low-band waves improve your coverage in buildings so you can stay connected, even indoors. T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network covers over 90% of Americans allowing you to use it across the country. Capacity and range play a huge role in how you use your mobile device and T-Mobile continues to improve the coverage and enhance your experience. T-Mobile nationwide 5G gives you 2X the speeds you get with our LTE and we’re rolling out speeds as fast as Wi-Fi to millions of customers in hundreds of cities across the country, letting you do so much more while you’re home or on the move.
