T-Mobile Revs Up Millimeter Wave with 5G Standalone

06 de diciembre de 2023

T-Mobile worked with Ericsson and Qualcomm to pull off another 5G first, testing 5G standalone millimeter wave on its production network, delivering speeds topping 4.3 Gbps

BELLEVUE, Wash. — December 6, 2023  

T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) announced today it achieved another 5G U.S. first in a test that leveraged 5G standalone millimeter wave (mmWave) on its production network. Working with Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., the Un-carrier aggregated eight channels of mmWave spectrum to reach download speeds topping 4.3 Gbps without relying on low-band or mid-band spectrum to anchor the connection. T-Mobile also aggregated four channels of mmWave spectrum on the uplink, reaching speeds above 420 Mbps.

5G mmWave can deliver incredibly fast speeds because it offers massive capacity. But the signal doesn't travel very well through obstacles, making it less ideal for mobile phone users who aren't sitting still. That's why T-Mobile has implemented a multi-band spectrum strategy using low-band to blanket the country and mid-band and high-band (Ultra Capacity) to deliver insanely fast speeds to nearly everyone. Now the Un-carrier is testing 5G mmWave on 5G SA for crowded areas like stadiums and, potentially, for fixed wireless service.

"We've been industry leaders - rolling out the first, largest and fastest 5G standalone network across the country - and now we're continuing to push the boundaries of wireless technology," said Ulf Ewaldsson, President of Technology at T-Mobile. "We've always said we'll use millimeter wave where it makes sense, and this test allows us to see how the spectrum can be put to use in different situations like crowded venues or to power things like fixed-wireless access when combined with 5G standalone."

T-Mobile is the leader in 5G, delivering the country’s largest, fastest and most awarded 5G network. The Un-carrier’s 5G network covers more than 330 million people across two million square miles — more than AT&T and Verizon combined. 300 million people nationwide are covered by T-Mobile’s super-fast Ultra Capacity 5G with over 2x more square miles of coverage than similar mid-band 5G offerings from the Un-carrier’s closest competitors.

T-Mobile is also America’s fastest growing home internet provider with solutions to connect homes and businesses. 5G Home Internet is available to over 50 million homes today, plus Small Business Internet and Business Internet is available across the country. This means millions of homes and businesses can finally ditch traditional ISPs for fast, reliable and hassle-free internet service with T-Mobile.
