Mobile's 5G "low-band" network lights up across the country

Mobile's 5G

OnePlus' latest device, the 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition, is now up for pre-order on T-Mobile's website.

Something to look forward to: Curiously enough, T-Mobile made no claims regarding speed in its press release.

Today's news is really little more than a paper launch considering there are no phones available to take advantage of T-Mobile's new network.

While Sprint's and Verizon's 5G networks are available in select cities, with coverage further limited by the employed spectrum's ability to penetrate buildings (a weakness we experienced in our testing, especially with Verizon), T-Mobile claims its 5G network now covers one million square miles and 60% of the United States population.

But T-Mobile has teased that faster 5G. T-Mobile did not answer that question. The big benefit to T-Mobile's network is much farther range and better coverage. There are 19,495 incorporated places in the US.

From December 6, T-Mobile's 5G network will also be available to Metro by T-Mobile prepaid customers. In the coverage map provided by T-Mobile, which is at the top of this article, you can see that the 5G areas displayed in a darker shade of pink don't include huge portions of the country covered by T-Mobile 4G.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere today posted a tweet announcing the "first nationwide 5G" network and a video in which he says that "nationwide 5G is live".

"5G is here on a nationwide scale".
