Which telecom company will win the 5g race

Jul 14, 2019 8 Comments

Read this article below that summarizes where AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon are at in terms of 5G. I think it did a good job explaining what each company has done so far. So, who do you think will win this race?

    The actual use cases are "neat" and "interesting", but until the bandwidth and coverage are justified, it's more of the same gamesmanship and marketing one-ups with each milestone. Ultimately....all of the carriers will win once we find a way to sell you what we're offering...

      Just a business decision, I guess. Was with VZ when we launched VoLTE, moved to Sprint when I took that fantastic package and was amazed to hear Sprint was about 3 years behind. Give it a few months. The one thing I did note is that Sprint isn't worrying with certifying and updating older versions, so some iOS are going to be left to CDMA/LTE.

      Trust me, I get it, I missed my concurrent data/voice for about a year :)

      Especially if you’re on some gravy plan like the old Sprint SERO for $30/month. 😉

    The race never ends. There’s no finish line. 5G footprint is still fluid and will =/= 4G footprint.

    The standards have not been clearly defined. Even the problem hasn't been clearly defined. The carrier's are only as good as their equipment suppliers. There is no innovation by these telecomm vendors, like Nokia, Ericsson or even Huawei. True 5G will take a long time to materialize.
