T-Mobile announced today that its 600MHz 5G network is available in the U.S., bringing 5G network services to more compatible device users, such as the one plus 7T 5G McLaren Custom Edition and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G model. The company says its 5G network covers more than a million square miles (more than 200 million users). While there is no t-Mobile 5G-style iPhone, Apple plans to release its first 5G-enabled 5G-enabled iPhone by 2020.

Speed is not the biggest advantage of the T-Mobile 600MHz 5G network over the millimeter wave technology of AT?amp;T and Verizon. The former is affected by obstacles such as buildings and trees, while the latter has a stronger penetration capability.

That’s why mmwave technology is better suited for use in densely populated urban areas, while the sub-6GHz band is better suited for rural and suburban signal coverage.
John Legere, t-Mobile’s chief executive, said: ‘5G has been rolled out across the country, which is an important step towards universal service, but it’s just the beginning.
Its critics are forcing customers to develop expensive packages, but T-Mobile is committed to building a wide range of 5G services across the country that will allow ordinary people and corporate customers to save on additional expenses.
After the merger with Sprint, T-Mobile will further expand its 5G network.
