A digital transformation in the energy industry is possible by optimizing grid operations through the capture of data in real-time. Utilities can also capture meter data faster for more timely and accurate billing through new programs such as prepay solutions that help utilities avoid non-payment and improve cashflow.

Let’s talk

As utilities add more wireless connected devices, they need to minimize the number of networks they’re currently supporting for their energy infrastructure. T-Mobile 5G and LTE technologies enable the transition from multiple networks to one multi-service network platform.

5G and LTE offer broadband, narrowband, low latency, security, enhanced reliability, dense connections and the other performance features required by current and future utility smart grid use cases.

Our network allows energy companies to efficiently handle a large number of end points such as parking sensors, air quality sensors, smart meters, and lighting control devices.

By capturing energy data in real time, energy companies can be more cost effective and find ways to provide power without building expensive plants to meet demand.  

How T-Mobile helps increase efficiency for energy providers.

  • 5G and LTE technologies on one multi-service network

  • Network assists with providing improved mobility, safety and economic drivers

  • Digital transformation in the energy industry for emerging IoT needs

  • Network empowers energy customer decisions on usage

  • Empower providers to utilize and make better decisions regarding the grid during peak demand times

Energy perspectives.


America’s 5G network provides smart energy solutions.

You can count on reliable connectivity across extensive service areas include remote rural locations and in challenging environments such as office building, basements, and other structures.

A T-Mobile 5G network solution for energy enterprises can provide more bandwidth, lower latency, and much higher reliability than ever before with required redundancy.

Low latency allows utilities to better manage in near real-time issues such as faults/outage detection for better load balancing, improved safety, and provide a better customer experience.

Accurate, real-time data insights help drive performance, so field management can ensure workers are in the right place, at the right time. Using connected devices, such as drones over 5G and LTE, energy companies can reduce inspection times, lower costs, and improve worker safety.
