T-Mobile Achieves Another 5G Milestone

By Greg Tavarez

T-Mobile is a driving force for a 5G-only experience, expecting to cover 260 million people in 2022 with ultra capacity 5G. Earlier this month, T-Mobile started voice over 5G so all services can run on 5G.

Reaching another 5G milestone, T-Mobile aggregated three channels of mid-band 5G spectrum to reach speeds over 3GB per second on its standalone 5G network. The test was done with a Samsung Galaxy S22 powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform with Snapdragon X65 Modern-RF System.

5G Carrier Aggregation (NR CA) allows T-Mobile to combine multiple 5G channels to deliver greater speed and performance. In the test, the Un-Carrier, as it refers to itself, merged two channels of 2.5 GHz Ultra Capacity 5G and one channel of 1900 MHz spectrum to create a 210 MHz 5G channel.

“This test demonstrates the incredible power of mid-band spectrum and represents another huge step forward for standalone 5G,” said Neville Ray, president of technology at T-Mobile. “Only T-Mobile is delivering a nationwide standalone 5G network to customers today, and we’re blazing a trail with new performance-boosting capabilities that generate incredible speeds and deliver on our vision to create the highest capacity network in the country.”

NR CA is live in parts of T-Mobile’s network today, combining two 2.5 GHz 5G channels for greater speeds, performance and capacity. Customers with the Samsung Galaxy S22 will be among the first to experience a third 1900 MHz 5G channel later this year.

This capability will expand across the Un-carrier’s network and to additional devices in the near future.
