5G T-Mobile Won't Launch Until Later This Year

Per the press release, Sprint's 5G network is launching in the first half of 2019 and "when this rolls out, Google Fi customers with Sprint 5G compatible "Designed for Fi" phones in a 5G coverage area will be automatically connected to the network". Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington D.C. will follow later this year. As of now, the few 5G phones available will only partially support T-Mobile's 5G network, rendering the project unfinished.

5G promises new levels of innovation and progress to connect people, places and the billions of things Sprint customers do with blazing-fast speed and ultra-reliable wireless connectivity.

Sprints state that its 5G network will be part of Google Fi, Google's wireless carrier that piggybacks on the networks of Sprint and T-Mobile.

Sprint's silence on the pricing topic is noteworthy considering T-Mobile flatly stated this month that it will not charge a premium for 5G over 4G.

Sprint's 5G network differs with the other 5G networks on a major factor.

Other U.S. carriers are rolling out 5G with "millimeter waves" that significantly boost data speeds but doesn't travel as far as LTE waves. This spectrum is also used by Sprint's LTE service but the network is incorporating massive MIMO equipment to create what it calls a 4G/5G split. It will also sell the about to be launched, first 5G smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. "Today, we are advancing our technology collaboration by taking this next step with Sprint to deliver commercial 5G NR, and supporting their 5G strategy through this milestone in Chicago", said Lyle Nyffeler, Vice President, Networks Division, Samsung Electronics America. Each has its own individual plans in spreading the 5G network and technology to different cities in the U.S. T-Mobile made this decision because it will allow the company to cover more area faster, even if it means slower peak speeds, whereas Verizon and AT&T will have faster peaks but it will take more work (and potentially more time) to cover the same area.

Sprint said customers who deploy its Curiosity IoT core can also make use of Amazon Web Services (AWS) storage, analytics and IoT development capabilities via an edge computing deployment. In February it said 5G will expand to nine more cities in 2019. In New York, Sprint said we can expect coverage in Midtown and lower Manhattan.
