Mobile's 5G network goes live ahead of schedule

In total, more than one million square miles are blanketed in coverage, we're told.

If you were excited for the prospect of 5G, but less so for a signal that dies when you walk around the block, today OnePlus and T-Mobile have your back.

T-Mobile previously said that its nationwide 5G coverage would go live on December 6th, but it looks like T-Mo just couldn't wait until then to flip the switch.

There are now no iPhones that are compatible with T-Mobile's 5G network, with Apple planning to release its first iPhones that support 5G connectivity in 2020.

When 5G is mentioned, most people are talking about millimeter wave spectrum, which offers blazing fast data transfer speeds, but it is sensitive to interference from buildings, trees, and other obstacles and it is best suited to use in dense, urban locations.

T-Mobile's 5G coverage is available to everyone on T-Mo, including postpaid and prepaid customers, and it doesn't cost anything extra to access. "If the merger with Sprint closes, the New T-Mobile will be able to build on this foundation to deliver transformational broad and deep 5G for All", Sprint said in a press release.

Of course, you'll need a 5G-enabled phone to take advantage of the network. The company has, however, already started working on its 5G network with the faster and more limited mmWave technology in a few cities.
