As expected, T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network became available to customers today with the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G going on sale to access it.
And it is not just T-Mobile postpaid customers – even people on the prepaid Metro by T-Mobile network are able to buy the new 5G Galaxy Note 10+ and get in on the 5G action.
But as we covered in our detailed look at the state of 5G last week, these first-generation 5G phones are low-band only and are missing out on mmWave compatibility that will prove to be essential for peak 5G performance in the future.
And while T-Mobile’s 5G network that is now live is technically “real 5G” – it is launching with key 5G features yet to be enabled, leading to less range and speed than will be on offer over the same airwaves next year.
