Telecommunications company Sprint has shared some plans regarding the 5G service in the US. The company announced at the MWC in Barcelona that mobile customers in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and Kansas City can now expect 5G service in May 2019.
If you do not live in one of these cities, you may live in Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix or Washington DC. Sprint also promises a 5G coverage in these cities shortly after its first launch sometime before the end of June 2019.
Overall, Sprint expects 1,000 square kilometers in nine cities by the end of the first half of 2019. It will take years until the introduction of 5G coverage in the US.
For devices, Sprint will sell smartphones that are compatible with its 5G network. The first will be the LG V50 ThinQ 5G. The company will also sell the Samsung Galaxy S1
Sprint also works with Google, so Google Fi customers can use Sprint's 5G network if they have a compatible device.
Everything You Need to Know It is still unclear whether 5G plans will cost more.
