T-Mobile operator launches Independent Ultra Capacity 5G

Last summer, the US operator T-Mobile released the results of production network tests, showing that 5G standalone (5G SA) can provide up to 3Gbps when combined with carrier aggregation (NR CA). speed. Now, the operator has officially launched the Standalone Ultra Capacity 5G network service.

T-Mobile said it took the only nationwide 5G standalone (5G SA) network to the next level, lighting up Ultra Capacity 5G on nationwide 5G SA. This move will unlock faster speeds for customers across the country, while further reducing lag in the network with lower latency, improving the experience of applications such as games that require near real-time response.

T-Mobile believes 5G is having a meaningful impact on its customers when it comes to smartphones, home internet, and disaster response, but we're only scratching the surface of 5G yet.

While T-Mobile claims speeds of up to 3Gbps, don't expect to experience those blazing fast speeds on a 5G-capable device everywhere or on the network.

T-Mobile pointed out that the increased speed of the 5G SA rollout will first apply to the Samsung Galaxy S22 series of phones, in the coming weeks, it will be extended to other devices in the near future.

T-Mobile hasn't shared specifics yet, and beyond the maximum 3Gbps test speed, it remains to be seen how much of an expected performance boost it will be in actual use. But T-Mobile will be the first carrier to use mid-band spectrum to offer performance as fast as 5G mmWave or faster.
