While Sprint's and Verizon's 5G networks are available in select cities, with coverage further limited by the employed spectrum's ability to penetrate buildings (a weakness we experienced in our testing, especially with Verizon), T-Mobile claims its 5G network now covers one million square miles and 60% of the U.S. population. T-Mobile hasn't actually forgotten about the other 130 million people in the U.S., as a sentence halfway through the carrier's press release notes that "T-Mobile's network covers more than 60 percent of the population".

There are now no iPhones that are compatible with T-Mobile's 5G network, with Apple planning to release its first iPhones that support 5G connectivity in 2020. T-Mobile's 5G is truly 5G, just not the fastest version right now. T-Mobile did not answer that question.

T-Mobile boasts that the difference between its 5G network and those from competing networks like Sprint 5G and Verizon 5G is the wider coverage map. Today, the company went ahead and flipped the switch for its 5G network, though no one can actually use it until later this week. There are 19,495 incorporated places in the US.

T-Mobile today announced that its 600MHz 5G network has gone live across the United States, bringing 5G connectivity to those who have a compatible smartphone. These phones do not support mmWave, so you'll never be able to access T-Mobile's faster 5G network. Alaska is excluded entirely. But Legere did not specify in the tweet or video that the nationwide 5G excludes 40% of the United States population.
