Telos Technology says that it has joined forces with LG Electronics to build the USA's first data-only, CDMA2000 network for Monet Mobile Networks. Operating on licensed spectrum in the 1900 band, Monet's CDMA2000 network uses LGE's Radio Access Network (RAN) and Packet Data Serving Node (PDSN), supported by a Telos wireless Softswitch. Testing and installation of the system are now complete. Monet Mobile Networks launched its data service network to residential and business customers in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in October 2001 - the first regional carrier to do so in the United States.

T-Mobile phones will soon display a new icon in the status bar to indicate when they are connected to 5G in a higher frequency band that offers faster data speeds. The icon will appear first on the newest iPhones, and the company is working with phone makers "to include this update on as many devices as possible".

T-Mobile recently announced that its mid-band 5G network now covers over 200 million people, a threshold that the industry acknowledges as "nationwide" coverage. (Mid-band 5G offers an ideal balance of fast data speeds and broad coverage compared to 5G in other bands.) In an interview with Phone Scoop, T-Mobile executives detailed how they plan to maintain the company's lead in mid-band 5G even as Verizon and AT&T launch mid-band 5G early next year.
