T-Mobile Successfully Tests Multi-Band 5G Outside The Lab

Posted by at 9:31 am on January 7, 2019

T-Mobile has successfully tested 5G technology on three different radio frequency bands, including 600 MHz (band 71), in a real world setting outside of a lab. The company is working toward offering 5G service nationwide in 2020.

T-Mobile worked with Ericsson and Intel to complete the recent test, which involved three users participating in a video call, using 600 MHz, 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands. While the GHz bands offer greater speed and capacity, the 600 MHz band offers better “blanket” coverage. During the tests, the teams generated a 5G signal capable of covering more than a thousand square miles from a single tower.
