T-Mobile has thrown the switch on a new 5G network. And unlike previous 5G efforts by rival carriers that have been limited to a handful of cities — and only select areas of those cities, at that — T-Mobile’s 5G network reaches across the country. 

No more standing on street corners wondering if you can maintain a 5G connection. If you live in one of the areas where T-Mobile’s 5G reaches — and with a network that covers 5,000 cities and 200 million people, the odds are more in your favor than ever — you’re going to get consistent 5G coverage on a compatible 5G phone.

We had the chance to test T-Mobile’s 5G service last week with a OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren. And while additional testing is required to produce a definitive verdict about that particular phone, we can confirm that T-Mobile’s 5G service provides a consistent connection that even reaches indoors — something that 5G networks from rival carriers can’t always claim.

So now’s the time to grab a 5G phone, hop on T-Mobile’s new network end enjoy the faster speeds and lower latency that have defined what 5G is supposed to be, right? For most people, probably not.
