Sprint 5G Launches in May in Select Cities

Sprint will launch its 5G network this May

Sprint will launch its 5G network this May

Like previous rollouts of new service, the coverage will be offered in a core area and then expand over time.

USA carriers are sprinting (pun intended) to be first with 5G, with AT&T even going as far as to label its LTE Advanced network 5G Evolution. They are starting small, but Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, and Kansas City will get lit-up first.

Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington D.C. will go online shortly thereafter, though Sprint isn't giving those cities a specific launch date (only that it will happen in the first half of the year).LG's V50 ThinQ is Sprint's first 5G smartphone. Google and Sprint announced Monday that Sprint will bring 5G to Google's signature Fi MVNO in the first half of 2019. That said, it appears that T-Mobile's footprint on those other spectrum bands will be fairly minimal.

T-Mobile and Sprint have proposed a $26 billion merger of the two telecom companies, but the plan hasn't yet cleared regulatory approval.

UPDATE: T-Mobile contacted TmoNews with more information on its 5G plans. Sprint made the announcement in Barcelona at the Mobile World Conference where it was demonstrating its new technology.

Sprint has sued rival AT&T claiming its 5G Evolution offering misleads consumers because it is not the same as true 5G. Ray said the company had hoped to have a device sooner but it hasn't worked out.

Wireless carriers are engaged in a fierce battle to win over consumers with the promise of 5G service.

"That's a real commercial launch for customers", he said.

Google Fi, Google's wireless service that uses intelligent technology to give their customers the best available network using a combination of wireless providers and Wi-Fi where available has been active on the Sprint network since 2015. Ho asked of the coming 5G launch. When this rolls out, Google Fi customers with Sprint 5G compatible Designed for Fi phones in a 5G coverage area will be automatically connected to the network, quite similar to today's seamless transitions between cellular networks, depending on the location.

"It's an advantage, but it's an advantage that will quickly evaporate", Entner said.

The company's window for making good on that lead will be short-lived.
