T-Mobile Nearly Doubles Its Supercharged Mid-Band 5G in Just One Month

gbafNews28

Largest 5G network? Check. Blazing fast speeds customers can actually find? Check. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced it has nearly doubled the number of cities and towns that get supercharged mid-band 5G, adding even more capacity and superfast speeds to Americas largest nationwide 5G network. Mid-band 2.5 GHz 5G delivers both broad coverage and fast speeds at the same time – and it can even go through walls (looking at you, mmWave!). In places its deployed, average download speeds are already around 300 Mbps thats 7.5x faster than todays average LTE speeds with peak download speeds up to 1 Gbps. With todays announcement, T-Mobile mid-band 5G reaches nearly 410 cities and towns across the country. The Un-carrier is rolling out mid-band 5G at a furious pace, with plans to cover 100 million people by the end of the year.

Mid-band is the only way to deliver super-fast 5G speeds that can reach for miles. And heres the secret AT&T and Verizon dont want you to know: T-Mobile is the only one with big swaths of mid-band dedicated to 5G. T-Mobile has more mid-band spectrum than anyone else, said Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile. Were the only ones building a transformational 5G network built on dedicated not shared airwaves. And that means only T-Mobile is capable of making the worlds best 5G network a reality.

Why Mid-band for 5G?

Mid-band spectrum is the 5G spectrum. It combines massive capacity with far-reaching coverage to bring game-changing performance to more people across the country. Mid-band 2.5 GHz 5G delivers blazing fast speeds that can rival millimeter wave, but unlike mmWave, mid-band can blanket large areas with needed coverage and go through walls, windows and trees. Which means its a more practical 5G technology.

When it comes to real-world 5G, the only way to get the kind of performance benefits weve been promised is through the critical mid-band spectrum, noted Bob ODonnell, President of TECHnalysis Research. Sure, mmWave can be fast, but its nearly impossible to find, while low-band 5G is easy to find, but offers smaller improvement over existing LTE. With the 2.5 GHz spectrum being lit up by T-Mobile, however, you get the sweet spot of noticeably improved performance in a respectable coverage area. Thats the kind of 5G benefit that consumers are going to notice and appreciate.

T-Mobile has Americas largest 5G network and its only getting better as the Un-carrier deploys more mid-band spectrum from Sprint. T-Mobiles 5G network covers more than 7,500 cities and towns across nearly 1.4 million square miles of the U.S. Thats more square miles of 5G coverage than Verizon and AT&T combined 3.5x more than Verizon 5G and 2x more than AT&T. T-Mobile has pioneered a distinctive ˜layer cake strategy to deliver a transformative, nationwide 5G network for all: dedicated spectrum across all three layers of 5G low for far and wide coverage indoors and outside, mid for broad coverage and blazing fast speeds and high for super-fast speeds over shorter distances for the best 5G experience.

T-Mobile is the only one building 5G with dedicated spectrum across all three bands, which is important since 5G phones will use a lot of capacity. T-Mobile has wide open freeways ready to take on massive amounts of 5G traffic, while Verizon and AT&T have to steal LTE spectrum from their existing customers to broaden their 5G coverage. Using Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS), Verizon forces 5G and LTE customers to share bandwidth, splitting up the capacity so each technology only gets part of it, taking capacity away from their current smartphone customers and increasing congestion.

Now with mid-band spectrum, T-Mobile is building on its nationwide 5G foundation, increasing capacity and boosting speeds for customers. And its rolling out at lighting speed across the country. Engineers are lighting up 1,000 sites per month with 2.5 GHz 5G and T-Mobile has plans to cover 100 million people with mid-band 5G by the end of the year.

“I'm tremendously proud of everything we achieved at Ultimaker in a short period of time. The transformation from a start-up to a company that now shapes how companies produce and manufacture is phenomenal,” said Jos Burger, outgoing CEO, Ultimaker. “The last seven years have been intense, and given my age, it's now time to retire from the CEO role. All the building blocks that will sustain future growth are there, and now it's the best moment to hand over to Jürgen. Ultimaker continues to have a unique space in my heart, and I'm thrilled with the opportunity to serve on the Supervisory Board.”

Jürgen von Hollen brings extensive international experience and a wealth of leadership in fast-growth technology industries. Prior to Ultimaker, Jürgen was President and CEO at Universal Robots, where he successfully grew the company and established it as the global market leader in collaborative robotics. Jürgen has held leadership positions at Bilfinger SE, Daimler-Chrysler Services, T-Systems, and Pentair.

“I am very excited to be joining the Ultimaker team, who has developed a leading product, strong business model and has a very talented team,” said Jürgen von Hollen, incoming CEO, Ultimaker. “I believe this uniquely positions Ultimaker to take full advantage of a USD 35 billion 3D printing market and outgrow this market, which itself is expected to grow at 20% per annum. Ultimaker has the ability to enable dynamic innovation, flexible manufacturing and delivers great productivity improvements. Together, we want to transform organizations and Ultimaker is in a great position to grow as the leader.”

Bart Markus, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, adds: “Jos is leaving a great legacy behind, and now it is the right time to take advantage of what Jos has built and accelerate the company further.

  • EQT Infrastructure and Proximus are committed to invest significantly into the increased digitalization of the Belgian society                 
  • The JV will benefit from EQT Infrastructure's vast fiber roll-out experience and Proximus' unrivalled expertise in the Belgian telecom market, and together the parties aim at realizing a substantial increase of the fiber coverage in Flanders

STOCKHOLM, Nov. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The EQT Infrastructure V fund (“EQT Infrastructure”) and Proximus, Belgium's largest telecom operator, are pleased to announce the signing of a partnership agreement. As part of this agreement, the two parties will form a new joint venture (JV) that will design, build and maintain a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network in Flanders. EQT Infrastructure will initially own 50.1 percent of the JV and Proximus will hold 49.9 percent.

EQT Infrastructure and Proximus have identified large opportunities in accelerating the build-out pace of the FTTH network in the Flemish Region of Belgium. FTTH is the fastest and most reliable broadband solution available and is instrumental in managing the increasingly growing internet bandwidth demands of the future. EQT and Proximus are committed to invest significantly into the JV over the coming years with the ambition to bring the required fiber connectivity to Flanders so that its residents and businesses can actively participate in the Gigabit Society.

The JV will benefit from the combination of EQT Infrastructure's vast experience from developing strong fiber companies in Europe and North America, and Proximus' unrivalled expertise in the Belgian telecom market and long-standing relationships with municipalities and housing associations. Together, the parties will create an efficient rollout machine to build a fiber network, which will be open and accessible to all operators. The JV intends to connect its first customers during 2021 and the overall goal is to bring fiber connectivity to at least 1.5 million households and businesses over the coming years. The JV will be supported by a strong board of directors with hands-on experience from fiber deployment in Belgium and other European markets.

Matthias Fackler, Partner at EQT Partners, said: “We are very happy to have found a strong partner in Proximus for this exciting fiber rollout opportunity in Belgium. As the leading investor in digital infrastructure, EQT sees the growing need for future-proof and reliable broadband access all over the European continent. Through this partnership, we look forward to facilitating digital inclusion and sustainable economic growth in Flanders and the Belgian society as a whole.”

Guillaume Boutin, CEO of Proximus, said: “I am very pleased that we have signed this final agreement with EQT Infrastructure. This will enable us to reinforce our leading position in multi-gigabit infrastructures, in an era where reliable, next-generation fixed and mobile connectivity has become more important than ever. It also illustrates our positive attitude towards cooperation and co-investment, which will be an important trigger to guarantee a faster, broader and more cost-efficient roll-out. I'd like to congratulate the teams involved on both sides, as this agreement marks another major step forward to build the most future-proof and open network for Belgium and bring high-speed connectivity solutions to every citizen”.

The closing of the transaction is expected in Q1 2021, subject to customary regulatory approvals.

With this transaction, EQT Infrastructure V is expected to be 15-20 percent invested (including closed and/or signed investments, announced public offers, if applicable, and less any expected syndication) based on its target fund size, and subject to customary regulatory approvals.
