Mobile Launches 600MHz 5G Network Across United States

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

OnePlus' latest device, the 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition, is now up for pre-order on T-Mobile's website. In total, more than one million square miles are blanketed in coverage, we're told. There are 19,495 incorporated places in the US.

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.

Despite its actual coverage, T-Mobile's announcement uses the word "nationwide" to describe the current reach of its 5G network a dozen times while admitting that "coverage [is] not available in some areas". Alaska is excluded entirely.

To celebrate the launch of its "nationwide 5G network", T-Mobile is offering this device free of charge via 24 monthly bill credits when you switch to T-Mobile and trade in an eligible device. But Legere did not specify in the tweet or video that the nationwide 5G excludes 40% of the USA population.
