T-Mobile 5G network expands to another 10 markets


It was only a few days ago that T-Mobile announed that its 5G network had expanded to 7 new markets, and now it’s been lit up in 10 more.

T-Mobile has activated its 5G network in 10 new markets. They include places like Hood River, OR; Hatch, NM; Hampton, IA; and several more.

Here’s the full list of newly-announced 5G locales:

  • Cordes Lakes, AZ

  • Bloomfield, IN
  • Versailles, IN
  • Hampton, IA
  • Hatch, NM
  • Four Bridges, OH
  • Hennessey, OK
  • Hood River, OR
  • Newburg, WI

This new T-Mobile 5G coverage uses 600MHz spectrum and is compatible with the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, and OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren.

    Any idea how long it takes from when testing supposed to be finished to when the network goes live?
    i. e. My town is in phase 8 which is scheduled to be done testing yesterday March 18. I’m sure corona is slowing things down.

      Not sure, but I will say this.. Do not expect it to be all lit up in one shot.. They did numerous upgrades to band 71, or 5G, before it was all said and done.. Basically, when they say that they did upgrades in your area, you do not know if it was one tower that was upgraded, or 10.. My city, which is just a mid sized city, was in that list I think something like 5 or 6 times.. Each time, they added a couple more towers with band 71 and 5G on them..

        10-4, I know when they did the round of mid-band updates my city was on there several times, like you said for yours.
        Read on spectrum gateway that phase 8 testing should be done by yesterday, didn’t know if that meant to expect something this week, or next month kind of thing.

          I did hear, or read, that they say that it can take a month or so to fully have it up and running, between installing the new hardware, running the new lines, and angling them, etc.. I am not sure what the exact time frame is though.

    Yay, more tiny towns no one heard of. Just like when they made fun of Sprint for Manhattan Kansas, seems they’re definitely going all the things Sprint does.

      These towns “no one heard of” are fine examples of T-Mobile’s commitment to serve EVERYONE with their best technology, not just the major urban cities, putting the spectrum they own to full use instead of only hoarding it like Dish has for years, and I applaud them for that commitment. People from those urban centers travel, and they expect to have service wherever they go, so T-Mobile is fulfilling that demand.

      FYI, a LOT of people know about Hatch, NM, the green chilè capital of the world.

        IKR. The complaint T-mobile had for years was it’s rural coverage. So obviously they are going to try to make sure they have good rural coverage as well as continue there city coverage.

  • Glenn Gore

    T-Mobile already had 5G service in Hennessey, Oklahoma, so the listed site is not an addition of new coverage, just bolstering what was already there. T-Mobile launched Band 71 service across western Oklahoma 2 years ago but none of that has been upgraded to 5G, they are upgrading only the brand new Band 71 that covers the footprint of the Oklahoma City TV stations that vacated 600 Mhz in February.

    Does anyone know what markets and what locations T-Mo has Mmw 5G? I wanna go test the speeds.
