T-Mobile is adapting up for 5G in a big way the carrier just announced a $3.5 billion deal with Nokia for 5G supplies. It is the biggest arrangement that we have noticed around next-generation wireless equipment. T-Mobile says it will be utilizing Nokia’s gear to build out its 5G network along 600 MHz and 28 GHz millimeter wave spectrum. That covers broad availability aside from spectrum desired for dense urban areas. This biggest deal one for Nokia it is also challenging with Ericsson and Huawei in the networking equipment arena.
Most carriers have been pushing up 5G over the years this move shows that T-Mobile is ready to do more than just talk about it. 5G networks will be much faster than existing 4G LTE, but they will also offer less latency which makes it more useful for games and applications that demand speedier response times. T-Mobile previously announced that it will start building its 5G network in 30 US cities this year. T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray said in a statement that we all are in on 5G. Every dollar we spend is a 5G dollar and our agreement with Nokia underscores the kind of investment we are making to bring customers a mobile, nationwide 5G network.”
