What is 5G?
5G is the next generation of wireless network technology, designed to meet today's growing data demands of the future while also expanding the scope of mobile technology beyond the capabilities of LTE. It will be transformative, fueling innovation across every industry and every aspect of our lives. Over time, 5G technology will revolutionize the way we live, work, and play.
Here are a few things it will do:
- 5G will support up to 10x faster speeds for mobile broadband. This will enable richer and faster experiences, such as mobile HD video, mobile AR and VR, and many other applications benefiting from higher speeds. 5G will also disrupt industries and bring more choices, particularly for home broadband.
- 5G networks can respond almost in real time with practically no delay. This will enable new applications that respond instantly, especially important when a split-second in reaction time matters—like self-driving cars, real-time language translation, remote surgery, and more. This ultra-responsiveness is also important for many industrial applications, such as automation and augmented reality for smart factories.
- 5G also provides wireless connectivity for far more connections than today’s networks, which is important as new types of connected objects are served by wireless networks. Imagine ‘Find My Phone’ functionality for EVERYTHING you own, sensors embedded in everyday items, like clothing and pet collars, or smart highways with street lights that get brighter as you drive by. Even smart parking so you never need to search for a spot again.
- Above all, it will be mobile, allowing you to experience these new, innovative technologies wherever, whenever.

What is the New T-Mobile 5G advantage?
New T-Mobile will be the only company able to bring a broad and deep nationwide 5G network to market quickly in the first years of the 5G innovation cycle, harnessing enhanced capacity and spectrum efficiencies to deliver lower prices to consumers and businesses of all sizes across the U.S.
With 5G, New T-Mobile will bring service to the underserved and new markets, including rural areas, prepaid customers, and T-Mobile business customers.
Who will have the FIRST Nationwide 5G Network?
New T-Mobile will have the right mix of available spectrum, financial strength, and expertise to create the FIRST nationwide 5G network.
How fast will 5G be at the New T-Mobile?
By 2024, New T-Mobile’s network will have approximately double the total capacity and triple the total 5G capacity than T-Mobile and Sprint combined. New T-Mobile plans to create the highest capacity network in U.S. history.
