The New T-Mobile has continued it’s fuchsia-bright level of bravado by claiming it’s “better, faster, stronger” than competitors. Yesterday, the company said it “supercharged the 5G experience in another 121 cities and towns with mid-band 5G,” claiming up to gigabit-per-second peak speeds and average download speeds around 300 megabits-per-second. To celebrate, T-Mobile is giving away $100,000 on Twitter over the next several months, with a promotion tagged #5Gsfor5G (entrants must tag @TMobile and use #5Gsfor5G and #Contest).
“The Un-carrier already has America’s largest 5G network, and it’s only getting bigger, better and faster by the day thanks to the mid-band spectrum we’re rolling out across the country,” said Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile. “It would be easy to deliver fast speeds that are only available less than 1 percent of the time, like Verizon, but T-Mobile’s strategy is different. With more low and mid-band spectrum than anyone in the U.S. and dedicated airwaves for 5G, only T-Mobile is delivering 5G with both coverage and speed.”
The company cites New York City as an example of one of the first places to get mid-band 5G (2.5 GHz) from the New T-Mobile and says it has already added 10x more mid-band sites since May. T-Mobile claims the additional sites added 25x more mid-band 5G coverage and 10x more mid-band capacity than before, providing coverage for all five boroughs.
