T-Mobile today said it will deploy 5G across much of the country within a few years using its low-band 600 MHz spectrum. “We’re committed to drive a 5G rollout by 2020 across the nation,” said T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray during an investor conference.

But we’ll deploy in the 600 MHz for 5G as we move into the next decade.” AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless are all pushing to deploy 5G technologies as soon as possible even though the standard has not been defined.

T-Mobile didn’t say what markets might see potential 5G service first.

Please put more capex into building macro/small cells before 5G!
Every provider has weak/dead zones and probably always will. It's just an inherent problem with technology that depends on line of sight and signals not being able to penetrate certain materials. There's also costs involved if towers are full and th...
