T-Mobile plans to launch a 5G network by the end of 2018. Now T-Mobile says not only will they offer a post-paid service from T-Mobile but their Metro by T-Mobile prepaid service will also offer 5G internet by the end of 2019.
“When we talk about 5G for All, it’s not just nationwide 5G service but it’s all shades of T-Mobile, Magenta and Purple,” said Neville Ray, chief technology officer at T-Mobile. “5G is going to be huge. It’ll transform the wireless experience. Metro by T-Mobile customers deserve access to the latest technology, and we’ll make sure they get it.”
This could make T-Mobile the first service to offer a prepaid 5G internet service in the United States, which will open up 5G to customers who want a prepaid option or do not qualify for a post-paid service.
“I couldn’t be more proud of today’s launch and what it means for our customers and potential customers. Truly nationwide and unlimited service on the most advanced LTE network and now with Amazon Prime and Google One. There’s not a better value in wireless,” said Tom Keys, president, Metro by T-Mobile. “And with a commitment to bring 5G to life in 2019, we’re making it crystal clear: Metro by T-Mobile customers aren’t making a compromise. They’re refusing to make a compromise.”
