BELLEVUE, Wash. — April 15, 2021 — T-Mobile customers get the fastest 5G speeds and spend the most time connected to 5G …but don’t just take OUR word for it. Yet another third-party network report shows how T-Mobile is leading in 5G. New data released today from Ookla, a leader in mobile network testing and data analysis, shows T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) customers get the fastest 5G speeds and get a 5G signal more often than customers on any other network. T-Mobile has America’s largest, fastest and most reliable 5G network. And Ookla’s report is just another confirmation of why T-Mobile is the leader in 5G.
“Ookla’s report is just the latest to prove T-Mobile is America’s leader in 5G, with real customer data showing T-Mobile delivers the fastest 5G speeds and a 5G signal more often,” said Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile. “While the other networks play catch up, T-Mobile 5G will keep layering on even more capacity and speed to the nation’s largest 5G network.”
T-Mobile’s network took the top spot in almost every mobile network category in Ookla’s report. In addition to ranking first for 5G speed and availability, the latest data from Ookla also shows T-Mobile customers get the fastest and most consistent overall network speeds nationwide. Ookla’s report results come from real wireless customer’s devices and their real-world testing of network performance every day across the country. Millions of data samples were collected from customers using Ookla’s Speedtest application to record how wireless networks perform in all the places where people live, work and play.
Largest, Fastest and Most Reliable 5G Network
Independent third-party network benchmarking reports continue to prove there’s one clear leader in 5G — T-Mobile. In addition to Ookla’s latest findings, additional independent reports confirm T-Mobile 5G is #1 in speed and availability. Recent tests by research firm umlaut rank T-Mobile first in 5G overall and show T-Mobile customers get the most reliable 5G in the U.S., the most 5G coverage and the highest 5G speed score. The Un-carrier is the only wireless provider in the U.S. with all three 5G wins — speed, coverage and reliability.
After blanketing the country in 5G, T-Mobile continues to layer on the capacity and speed as Ultra Capacity 5G lights up in more places across the country. Today, T-Mobile’s Extended Range 5G covers 287 million people across 1.6 million square miles. And the Un-carrier’s super-fast Ultra Capacity 5G already covers 125 million people with plans to extend this deployment nationwide, covering 200 million people, by the end of 2021. Ultra Capacity 5G is the best kind of 5G and can deliver game-changing performance with broad coverage and fast speeds.
