A nationwide study by research firm umlaut ranks T-Mobile 5G #1 overall, and in coverage and speed test measurements

BELLEVUE, Wash. — May 24, 2022 — Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down. A new report published today by independent research firm umlaut shows T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) continues to hold the 5G crown in the U.S. with the top overall 5G network score, most 5G coverage, and highest active 5G download and upload speeds. In the nationwide study, umlaut examined 3 billion (yes, billion with a B) samples from nearly 600 thousand real 5G users – recorded in the places people live, work and play.

“Anyone can SAY they’re the leader in 5G. But independent experts from across the industry have sent a clear message time and time again: there’s one network leader and it’s T-Mobile,” said Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile. “Our 5G network is delivering a level of performance and coverage that our competitors just can’t match. And that experience will only improve for customers as we accelerate the build of this amazing network!”

The ranking is according to the 5G umlaut score, max. achievable 5G DL Speed Active score = 150, max. achievable 5G UL Speed Active score = 150

umlaut’s nationwide report is just the latest in a long list to give the Un-carrier top marks for 5G. Leading research firms like Ookla, Opensignal, and others have made T-Mobile America’s most awarded 5G network, giving it the 5G crown across more than 20 network reports.

T-Mobile is the leader in 5G and its network is only getting better. The Un-carrier’s Extended Range 5G covers nearly everyone in the country – 315 million people across 1.8 million square miles. 225 million people nationwide are covered with super-fast Ultra Capacity 5G, and T-Mobile expects to cover 260 million in 2022 and 300 million next year.
