What you need to know
- T-Mobile now covers over 200 million people with 5G.
- The company hit that number with both its mid-band and mmWave technology.
- The iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 are able to use 5G connectivity.
In a press release, T-Mobile has announced that the company now covers over 200 million people in the United States with a 5G signal.
The company says that it is able to accomplish this coverage because of its rollout of both mid-band and mmWave 5G technology. Mid-band is the key here that has pushed the company ahead of other U.S. carriers like At&t and Verizon.
Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile, said that the current state puts the company two years ahead of its competitors.
The company says that it plans to continue the rollout of mid-band and mmWave 5G until it covers more than 300 million people over the next two years.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lineup are both able to take advantage of the 5G technology that T-Mobile has deployed in the United States.
