T-Mobile turns on 600MHz and mmWave 5G at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas


T-Mobile today announced that its 5G is now available in a new location, but it’s not a city or town that’s getting access to T-Mo 5G for the first time.

T-Mobile has turned on 5G at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Both 600MHz and mmWave 5G are live there, offering a mix of coverage and high speeds.

T-Mo also touts that T-Mobile Arena is the first 5G-enabled venue owned by AEG in the world. AEG owns a number of arenas, stadiums, and other venues around the world.

Today’s news is notable because T-Mobile customers visiting T-Mobile Arena are getting another place to try out 5G. This is also the first time that T-Mo has announced new mmWave 5G coverage ever since it first launched mmWave 5G last year. However, Las Vegas was one of the¬†six cities where mmWave 5G is available, so T-Mo’s list of mmWave 5G cities isn’t growing quite yet.

    I would like to see the speed tests in the arena. Better be at least 1 gig when empty that way when full you can still get around 50 mbps

      It’s been awhile, but I went to Las Vegas a week after the shooting and was shocked how crappy T-Mobile was there. It was terrible. I would have thought having an arena with your name on it you’d have decent speed. Hopefully they’ve improved there. I’m guessing they have by now. I’d have been happy with 5 Mbps back then. We had to use the hotels WiFi at Tahiti Village it was so bad.

        Never had any problems when traveling to Vegas. Always been great speeds.

          Hmmmm. Not sure. I was there for 4 days last and it was awful. Something may have been going on, not sure.

    So basically, this is good because the 1% of people with a mmWave capable phone.. After all, most 5G phones do not support mmWave from what I have seen.. Just 5G on the towers.. Even the Apple phones, only a select few, or basically the pro version, has mmWave abilities..

      No iPhone has any flavor of 5G yet…
