Tired of hearing about the wonders of 5G yet? T-Mobile hopes not because it has just switched on America’s first nationwide 5G network that covers more than 200 million people and 1 million square miles. Together with Sprint, T-Mobile says that its 5G network is now available in more than 5,000 towns and cities.
As you might expect, a certain loud CEO had something to say about the announcement:
“5G is here on a nationwide scale. This is a HUGE step towards 5G for All,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “While Dumb and Dumber focus on 5G for the (wealthy) Few, launching in just a handful of cities — and forcing customers into their most expensive plans to get 5G — we’re committed to building broad, deep nationwide 5G that people and businesses can access at no extra cost with the New T-Mobile … and today is just the start of that journey.”
For those ready to get 5G now, customers who switch to T-Mobile can get the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren for FREE with 24 monthly bill credits when they trade in an eligible phone. Existing customers can get up to $300 off the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren or up to HALF off the Galaxy Note10+ 5G via trade-in credit and rebate when they trade in their eligible phone. Plus, customers with good credit can get a free Note10+ 5G with 36 monthly bill credits when they buy one and add a line (two for new customers).
T-Mobile says that it plans to introduce more than 15 new 5G capable smartphones at a variety of price points during 2020 as low and mid-range chips with 5G connectivity come to market.
Are you planning on signing up for T-Mobile’s 5G network or are you going to hang back and see what the other carriers bring to the table in the coming months?
