If 5G Were … Ice Cream

July 20, 2021

(A delicious continuation of our series comparing the size of 5G networks using real-life objects)

Here’s the scoop … T-Mobile dishes out the best 5G coverage across the country. It’s the fastest. It’s the most reliable. And it’s by FAR the largest! In fact, our 5G network covers nearly 2x more square miles than AT&T and 4x more than Verizon. Here’s what that looks like in ice cream:

Because it’s hot out, and because sharing is caring, we took our ice cream to the beach. The North Avenue Beach in Chicago, to be specific. The people had a choice: 4 scoops for an order of Berry Fast 5G (us, of course), 2 scoops for Basic Blue (aka AT&T) and 1 scoop for Last-Place Licorice (aka Verizon).

Here’s some more 5G network scoop for you:

We recently raised a glass of T-Mobile 5Gin to our Extended Range 5G now covering 300 million people. That seems like a lot of people, because it is a lot of people — nearly everyone in the country.  And here’s something even sweeter:  we reached that milestone months ahead of schedule.  

But don’t just take our word that we have the largest, fastest and most reliable 5G network.

New independent data from Opensignal shows T-Mobile customers got the fastest 5G download and upload speeds (meaning you can get and send things faster). Plus, our 5G connection is the most available, meaning you get that awesome 5G connection more than anyone else.

And, new data from Ookla®, a network intelligence provider, confirmed that T-Mobile customers get the fastest 5G speeds and spend more time connected to 5G than customers on any other network.

It’s pretty clear that our 5G melts away the competition.

We also want to dish out a 5G-sized thanks to Shawn Michelle’s Homemade Ice Cream and owners Nataki and Yahya Muhammad. Their artisan ice cream is so good, it’s no surprise that they’ve been recognized locally. After several servings of Berry Fast 5G, we can see why!

Fastest: According to Opensignal Awards – USA: 5G User Experience Report July 2021, based on independent analysis of average speeds from mobile measurements recorded during the period March 16-June 13, 2021 © 2021 Opensignal Limited. Most Reliable: According to an audit report conducted by independent third party umlaut containing crowdsourced data for user experience collected from September 2020 until February 2021.
