BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) is making the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G available to customers starting June 28. The newest Samsung Galaxy taps into LTE and 5G in millimeter wave (mmWave) high-band spectrum simultaneously, boosting the capabilities of the Un-carrier’s network in parts of six urban areas (Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York). And where customers don’t get a 5G signal, the device will fly on T-Mobile’s advanced nationwide LTE network.
“5G from T-Mobile is different because we have a very different plan to deliver broad, deep and transformational 5G – to everyone! Unlike the other guys, we believe 5G should cover people near and far – especially those in rural America. And we believe 5G should not cost more,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “With this device, customers can supplement their already kick-ass LTE experience with a 5G boost in a few cities now, but if our merger with Sprint is approved, the New T-Mobile will build a 5G network for all … the kind of 5G network America deserves.”
To ensure customers know where they can access faster 5G speeds, T-Mobile published a millimeter wave coverage map for each city…while simultaneously throwing some side-eye at the carriers for refusing to publish 5G coverage maps.
To support the new smartphone, T-Mobile is pioneering a technology first with Multi-band Dual Connectivity across the Un-carrier’s entire 5G network, aggregating 5G in the millimeter wave band and LTE. That means customers can supplement an already blazing-fast LTE experience with 5G using mmWave spectrum for even better speeds.
Today’s news underscores the need for a multi-band 5G spectrum strategy. Real, game-changing, innovation-driving 5G requires broad and deep nationwide coverage. And that can only be achieved by using low, mid and high spectrum bands. That’s where the New T-Mobile comes in.
If the merger with Sprint is approved, New T-Mobile will utilize T-Mobile’s low-band and high-band mmWave spectrum, along with Sprint’s mid-band spectrum to deliver a broad and deep truly nationwide 5G network – the approach that’s NEEDED to serve all Americans. The New T-Mobile also won’t charge extra for 5G, with a commitment of at least three years with zero price hikes to existing plans, and strong economic incentive for even lower prices in the future. While the New T-Mobile’s 5G network will expand massively, customers’ bills won’t expand to access 5G.
