T-Mobile wants to celebrate with you: 5Gin and 5Ginger Beer now available


T-Mobile has something up its sleeve and it has to do with its achievement with its Extended Range 5G. 

As revealed by the Un-Carrier, their Extended Range 5G now covers 300 million people months ahead of schedule. This means that nearly everyone in the country is covered by the network. And in addition to that, their Ultra Capacity 5G covers 150 million individuals. 

“Last year, when we said we’d cover 300 million people with 5G by the end of 2021, people thought we were crazy. Now we’ve blown by that goal SIX MONTHS ahead of schedule, and we won’t stop building the nation’s largest, fastest and most reliable 5G network.” – T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert said. 

As a way of celebrating this big milestone for the Un-Carrier, T-Mobile has released an actual spirit– through an Ultra Capacity 5Gin (get it?). And since they want to extend the celebration to those who prefer non-alcoholic beverages, they have the Extended Range 5Ginger Beer. 

“Now, we’re gonna celebrate in a way ONLY T-Mobile would — by bottling the Un-Carrier spirit. Yes, you heard that right. And as we begin to get back to all the things we have missed, it’s time for a celebratory toast with 5Gin and 5Ginger Beer. You know the GIF from The Great Gatsby? That’s me right now. Cheers!” 

T-Mobile is also sharing these beverages with you. You can head over to their website to order a bottle of 5Gin or a six pack of 5Ginger Beer. There are only limited quantities available so make sure to get a bottle soon.  

T-Mobile has tapped on Heritage Distilling Company to help produce the premium 5Gin, which is currently available for $30 a bottle without shipping and taxes. As for the 5Ginger Beer, T-Mobile has partnered with Jones Soda Co. to produce the non-alcoholic beverage. A six-pack costs $10 without shipping and taxes.  

Along with releasing these beverages, T-Mobile has released a few recipes online on what you can do with these drinks. There are recipes for a 5G & T, a Magenta Martini, and even a non-alcoholic 5Ginger Mule. You can check out these recipes here.

    At least it’s more affordable than Teslaquila.
    Gin seems standard from the company offerings, soda seems unique for that brand.

    Are there any maps that show where this mid-band and high-band 5G coverage exists?

    • Shaun Michalak

      I know if you go to the T-mobile web site, they do show you where the 5G coverage is.. You just have to scroll in until you get to about the width of 2 states width before the 5G on and off button appears.. The problem is, it does not specify if that 5G is mid band, low band, or both.. That is about the only thing that I have found so far.. from any site.

      • Glenn Gore

        And therein lies the problem. Unlike AT&T and Verizon, who both show on their coverage maps just exactly how pitiful their high-band 5G coverage actually is, T-Mobile shows nothing about either mid or high-band. This is the absolute worst type of advertising claim, with nothing at all to back it up, no evidence, no names, no places, no maps, nothing at all, just “we said it, it’s a fact”. Sorry, not buying it.

        I am sure a coverage map that shows the actual extent of GSM, 2G, 3G, “4G/HSPA”, LTE, LTE+, low-band 5G, mid-band 5G, and high-band 5G coverage would be quite colortul and eye-opening. With every single one of those levels of service still existing and having to be maintained and continued across the country, it’s no wonder coverage and utility are a complete mess depending on where you are trying to use the service. And it’s probably a huge strain on phone manufacturers to have to include radios for each of those levels of service and antennas capable of receiving all the various frequencies.

        • Shaun Michalak

          When you say high band, I am taking it you are talking about mmwave.. if that is the case, I count on that zero.. It is so limited, plus most people do not even have mmwave capabilities on their phones anyways.. Unless you live in that area, I really find putting mmwave 5G on their maps pointless at this point in time.

          As for mid band.. That right there is the big problem.. T-Mobile brags big about their coverage.. But if all you have is band 71 low band, it is nothing to brag about.. They really need a map to show where they have band 41 installed.. Band 71 really is no better on 5G then it is 4G.. So you can expect pretty much the same service if that is the only 5G coverage that they have.

          With the exception of mmwave, with AT&T and Verizon right now.. Caring about their 5G is nothing more then a joke.. With them using DSS, 5G is worse then their 4G.. and there is no difference in additional coverage.. So for the most part, there is no real need for them to really advertise where they have their 5G right now.. At least, not until they get some some SA service in there.. Maybe in a couple of years??

          The change in T-Mobile from pre-merger to post-merger has been jarring, going from being the most public and newsworthy carrier, bragging about every single network expansion and upgrade, issuing monthly lists of new cities and areas of upgraded coverage, to now nothing at all, completely silent on the subject. This is the first press release in many months, even though the subject of coverage expansion is really only a side-mention.

          Since John Legere handed over the reins to the new leadership, T-Mobile has become totally silent on upgrades and expansions, only issuing one or two press releases that claim improvements while not making any changes on their coverage maps or any specific references and evidence to reflect any of those changes, which only furthers the idea amongst customers and fans that there aren’t really any significant changes going on and that these are just PR statements.

        • Shaun Michalak

          One side note from what you originally asked.. I do not know if this will help, but if you got to mint mobiles site, and check their map.. They can give you an idea as to if they have 5G in an area, and how good the signal is supposed to be.. along with what bands are supported in a certain location.. I honestly think their map is better then the T-Mobile one in getting you an idea as to coverage for the customer..

          I have noticed a lot of changes too.. Up until he left, they had a comparison chart where you could compare the coverage between the different carriers.. I noticed that since he left, they have not updated that one bit.. The coverage map used to tell you how good the signal is if you zoomed in, so you could get an idea of coverage strength in that are.. Now it is just, either it is there, or it is not.. What happened to their “confirmed coverage” little boxes on their coverage page too.. Also gone..

          As for there not being any changes to their coverage maps.. That I would have to disagree.. I am not sure how often they do it, but there are places in my area that they just put in new coverage in the last 6 months, and they are put in as coverage on their coverage map.. So I do know that they are updating their coverage maps to a point.. I just have no idea as to how fast they are updating it.

          What I do not like is how they have no way to really find out about their coverage.. Is it good coverage or poor?? Is it band 71 5G or band 41? or both?? Where do they even have band 41 installed?? You used to be able to zoom in and see.. Hey, they mark it as fair, so you have a 50% chance of coverage.. Or it is by an area with no coverage, so don’t expect anything.. But now, you do not have that.. and if it is between two towers, it makes it look like constant coverage, but there may be nothing there.. and no way to tell or even get an idea.. Not good.

          Thanks for the tip, Mint’s maps do do a better job at showing where the weak links might be between sites. However, like you say, they do not indicate what type of service might be available at a particular location, i.e. what spectrum is being utilized, which is a problem. And it is a problem that T-Mobile evidently has no plans to address right now. We currently have no clue where mid or high-band spectrum is being used and available for customers.

          I am not saying that T-Mobile does not update their online coverage maps, they obviously do on occasion. What I am saying is that their official maps are wildly off in what they show as coverage versus what a user actually sees on the ground. There is software available that could help remedy the situation when generating these maps that can take into account terrain, mountains, etc, but I am sure that would just make coverage look worse than it does now, so those tools will be left on the table. Best not to make things look worse than they already do.

        • Shaun Michalak

          I agree.. But it is not like any of the other carriers are any different..

  • MissedCall

    “Our coverage is so great, you’ll want to get hammered”

  • Acdc1a

    Coverage is useless in my house since the upgrade so now I can just get drunk instead of communicating. I like where they’re going with this!

    • Shaun Michalak

      Don’t forget to order the pizza and wings.. lol

  • zeiferx

    it would be great if they back this claims up with a map telling you where each coverage is available.
    for example what kind of coverage is available in the American Dream mall in NJ …. like my phone says no service right in the middle of it and Tmo is the only Carrier with a Store there right now (i don’t recall seeing att but Verizon is not open yet) i even told the manager at such store and she said when they first open they sent a ticket for it and still have not been resolve.

    Tmobile talks a lot about coverage and while i will give them credit for all the improvements, there’s just some “upgraded” areas that do not show signs that they have been upgraded, even is limited Verizon’s Coverage maps tells you what’s available and where…

    • Dummy Up Meathead

      Don’t they provide coverage maps?

      • zeiferx

        They have but only shows lte or 5g. Not what is mm wave, midnor low band.
        For example verizon shows you in the areas where mm wave is available, their 5g (dss) and lte.

  • Shaun Michalak

    A little off topic, but I was just curious.. I know with T-Mobile, a lot of the phones (especially the android ones), the software on the phones is not set up right and has had problems keeping a 5G signal, getting a signal when it is there, etc.. Does anyone know, is this just a T-Mobile thing, or do the phones do the same thing on the AT&T and Verizon networks too? At least, when connecting to 5G..

    In for 1. Shipping will bite you in the a$$. 26 bucks for a 30$ bottle…….free shipping for orders over $125

  • Bay_Ranger

    Considered ordering but with a $26.50 shipping fee it’s a NO. Would have to be really exceptional to be worth nearly $57 for 750 ml (1.5 pints).
