5G a few weeks early,T-Mobile hits its goal of 200 million covered by ‘ultra capacity



Reading Time: 2 minutes

T-Mobile has claimed that its “Ultra Capacity” 5G network now reaches more than 200 million people in the United States, exceeding a target set by the firm for the end of 2021.

T-mid-band Mobile’s and mmWave networks, both of which offer substantially faster speeds than its low-band “5G Extended Range” network, are dubbed “Ultra Capacity” 5G. T-Mobile claims that its low-band network, which is faster than 4G LTE in terms of actual speed, “covers 308 million people across 1.7 million square miles.”

Given T-success Mobile’s with its mid-band network — PCMag named the carrier the fastest in 2021, partly owing to the quality and coverage of its mid-band spectrum expansion — the launch here is especially noteworthy.

Meanwhile, AT&T and Verizon’s mid-spectrum efforts have largely been put on hold: the two companies were planning on relying on C-band spectrum to shore up their mid-band coverage, but the FAA warned that the networks could interfere with radio-based safety systems on some planes, so the rollout has been put on hold.

Of course, there’s a considerable difference between “covering” a large number of people and actually having them use T-Mobile, and despite the celebrations, T-Mobile only serves a small percentage of those individuals.

The business had just over 100 million users by the end of 2020, which is still a long way off from the 200 million individuals who might theoretically access its speedier 5G networks.

And just because T-5G Mobile’s UC network has reached the milestone doesn’t mean there isn’t still a lot of work to be done in terms of expanding the network: thanks to concentrated population clusters in major cities and dense urban areas in the United States, reaching “big” coverage numbers is comparatively easy.

As a result, T-future Mobile’s rollout plans are projected to be substantially slower, with the company intending to reach 300 million people with 5G UC service in the next two years.
