What is 5G? What’s the difference between 4G LTE and 5G? add
5G is the fifth generation of wireless network technology, designed to meet today’s growing data demands while expanding the scope of mobile technology beyond the capabilities of LTE. With 5G, large amounts of data can be transmitted much more efficiently than with 4G LTE, and that means faster speeds, more reliable service, less lag, and the ability to handle many more connections without buffering. Over time, these improvements will unlock amazing innovations and transform the way we live, work, and play.
Yes—5G is faster than 4G LTE, but actual speeds may vary depending on your device and network conditions.
How can I get 5G? Do I need to pay extra? add
You’ll need a 5G-capable device to access T-Mobile's 5G network. If you have a 5G-capable device, good news—5G access is included in all our plans, at no additional cost. Don’t have a 5G device just yet? No worries, our 4G LTE network has you covered just about everywhere.
How am I covered internationally? add
With eligible T-Mobile plans, you can get international coverage in 210+ countries and destinations.
What does the T-Mobile/Sprint merger mean for 5G? add
Strong, dependable network connectivity is more critical than ever, and by joining forces, T-Mobile and Sprint are building the largest and most reliable 5G network. The new T-Mobile network will deliver:
More capacity – 14 times more network capacity in the next six years than T-Mobile could offer alone. That means more power for streaming, gaming, downloading, and more.
Crazy-fast speed – customers will have access to average 5G speeds that are up to eight times faster than current LTE in just a few years, and 15 times faster over the next six years.
5G for nearly everyone – within six years, the new T-Mobile will provide 5G to 99% of the U.S. population, including rural America.
This map doesn’t show any 5G coverage in my area yet. When will 5G be available for me? add
We’re rapidly building out our 5G network—65% of Americans have access to T-Mobile 5G today. While 5G grows, you can rely on our 4G LTE network that covers 99% of Americans.
What is partner coverage? How can I get more information about network partners? add
In more remote areas of the country, coverage may be provided by local wireless network partners. Most T-Mobile plans include a limited amount of data in these areas. Check your plan or see roaming details. Click on specific locations on our map, or view our partner coverage map for a national view. Signal strength will vary by partner. Not available for prepaid Mobile Internet (tablet and wearable) plans.
