Inside T-Mobile’s Plans to Offer 5G Mobile Services

Amid the race to launch a 5G (fifth-generation) network, T-Mobile (TMUS), the third-largest US wireless carrier, is looking to merge with telecom peer Sprint (S). Together, the companies could pool their resources to rapidly launch a nationwide mobile 5G network. With T-Mobile’s 600 MHz (megahertz) spectrum, Sprint’s 2.5 GHz (gigahertz) spectrum, and other combined assets, the combined entity is looking forward to creating the highest-capacity mobile network in the United States.
