Here's What Has Happened Since T-Mobile & Sprint Merged

It's been nearly a month since T-Mobile and Sprint announced their merger and ever since then, the company has been pretty busy merging the two networks.

Today, T-Mobile announced that its 2.5GHz 5G network has been activated in certain areas in Philadelphia. To recall, the 2.5GHz spectrum comes from Sprint. These airwaves have allowed T-Mobile to increase the depth and speed of its 5G coverage.

As of this writing, only a small number of T-Mobile-capable devices can access the spectrum. Among the list of phones include the following:

  • LG V60 ThinQ 5G
  • OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren
  • OnePlus 8 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy S20 series

You can check out T-Mobile's coverage map to know the specific areas in Philadelphia where the 2.5GHz 5G spectrum can be accessed.

In addition to Philadelphia, T-Mobile confirmed its plans to launch the same spectrum in New York City. Once it goes live, T-Mobile customers will have access to 600MHz, 2.5GHz, and mmWave 5G. They also intend to launch 600MHz 5G in a few more cities, such as Detroit, St. Louis, and Columbus, OH.

But of course, the fun doesn't exclude Sprint customers. Later this month, customers using a Samsung Galaxy S20 5G device will get to access the 600MHz 5G owned by T-Mobile. This spectrum now covers over 5,000 towns and cities throughout the US. There are also some other compatible LTE devices that can access T-Mobile's LTE network. With this, they can have access to twice as much LTE cell sites compared to the ones that Sprint owns on its own.

It's interesting to see what else T-Mobile and Sprint has planned in the future. Is there anything in particular you are excited to see?

  1. I have Sprint and my service sucks

  2. I have Sprint here in NYC and the service has been great on my Note 10+, I also have a LG V60 5G on T-Mobile and while I love the phone, the signal on T-Mobile sucks. It's like night and day.
