  • T-Mobile will begin rolling out its 5G network across the country this week, taking the first steps toward ultra-fast next-generation wireless technology.
  • T-Mobile is also opening up pre-orders for two 5G-enabled devices this week, the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G and the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren.
  • Verizon has been mocked by competitors, including T-Mobile, for relying too heavily on millimeter wave technology, meaning its 5G network can’t reach large swaths of customers and isn’t effective inside buildings.
