T-Mobile 5G Gets Boost as Sprint Network Merging Kicks Off

The merger between T-Mobile and Sprint in the United States was completed at the beginning of April, and the two companies are wasting no time combining their networks.

T-Mobile today announced that Sprint's 2.5GHz mid-band spectrum is now live in parts of Philadelphia and is coming soon to New York City, adding "critical depth and additional speed" to T-Mobile's 5G network.


With the addition, T-Mobile users in New York will be the first to be able to access low-band, mid-band, and mmWave 5G. Later this month, current Sprint customers who have a Samsung Galaxy S20 5G smartphone will be able to tap into T-Mobile's 5G network in 5,000 cities and towns across the United States.

This marks the first giant step toward supercharging the Un-carrier's nationwide 5G network by beginning to combine the assets of T-Mobile and Sprint, just weeks after completing their merger. The company's unique combination of low, mid and high-band mmWave spectrum makes T-Mobile the only company with the resources to create a transformative network capable of driving innovation across the country and providing people in cities and rural areas with a 5G network the other guys can't match.

As of now, Sprint customers can roam on the T-Mobile network, providing access to more than double the number of LTE sites than on Sprint's network alone, expanding cellular availability to everywhere T-Mobile's network covers.

/remembers Sprint merging with Nextel...

{shudders}
Those were completely different networks. This is hardly the same. Both T-Mo and Sprint operate LTE networks. Sprint was already planning to sunset it's CDMA network soon. This merger is not the "nightmare" people in this thread are suggesting. As a matter of fact... if any merger made sense... it was this one.

Can’t begin to imagine how complicated it is to integrate 2 networks. Especially with something as finicky as signal waves
