T-Mobile has successfully tested 5G technology on three different radio frequency bands, including 600 MHz (band 71), in a real setting outside of a lab. The company is working toward offering 5G service nationwide in 2020. T-Mobile worked with Ericsson and Intel to complete the recent test, which involved three users participating in a video call, using 600 MHz, 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands. While the GHz bands offer greater speed and capacity, the 600 MHz band offers better "blanket" coverage. During the tests, the teams generated a 5G signal capable of covering more than a thousand square miles from a single tower.

Typo???

"During the tests, the teams generated a 5G signal capable of covering more than a thousand square miles from a single tower."

"A thousand square miles" means the radius of the range of the tower would need to be at least 17.84 miles??????

Even the current 4G towers don't reach that far. And we have been told that the range of 5G compared to the current 4G towers will be much less that would mean more 5G towers to cover the same amount of area.

Perhaps more than a hundred square miles might be the intended meaning???
Which would translate into a radius of 5.64 miles.
