T-Mobile's Faster Mid-Band 5G Now Covers 140 Million People
As part of its quarterly earnings report today, T-Mobile provided an update on its 5G rollout and Sprint customer migration. The company's faster "Ultra Capacity" 5G network — the bulk of which relies on 2.5 GHz mid-band radio frequencies — now covers 140 million people and is on track to cover 200 million by the end of 2021. T-Mobile's Ultra Capacity 5G includes redeployed 2.5 GHz radio spectrum (band 41) it gained when the company merged with Sprint, as well as mmWave for even faster speeds in select urban areas. The company also offers "Extended Range 5G" which uses lower frequencies and offers lower data speeds (closer to 4G). That service now covers 295 million people across 1.6 million square miles. T-Mobile claims that is 4x more than Verizon's 5G service area and 2x more than AT&T's. T-Mobile also announced that 20 percent of former Sprint customers have been moved to the T-Mobile network, and those users represent 50 percent of Sprint customer traffic.
