Major US wireless carrier T-Mobile and tech giant Nokia have recently announced that they have completed America’s first ever bidirectional over the air (OTA) 5G data session on a 5G New Radio (5G NR) system that complies with the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). According to the official press release, the said 5G data session was accomplished in the Uncarrier’s lab located in the city of Bellevue in Washington.
T-Mobile has built quite a reputation for always trying to shake up the wireless industry, particularly with its efforts to steal away current subscribers from its rivals (most especially industry leaders Verizon Wireless and AT&T). Because the so-called Uncarrier is fairly good at this sort of tactics, it is no wonder that Verizon has been spurred into action. Recently, the Big Red is offering a couple of new deals that should counter two existing special offers from T-Mobile.
T-Mobile has recently announced that it has completed the deployment of its 600 MegaHertz spectrum in over 900 cities and towns across the United States. According to the Uncarrier, some of the new cities and towns include Omaha in Nebraska, Augusta in Maine, Los Alamos in New Mexico, and even Puerto Rico. Of the 900 new markets, 120 of them were not previously served by T-Mobile.

According to the results of a study recently conducted by Rewheel, a mobile consultancy firm hailing from Finland’s capital city of Helsinki, the per gigabyte pricing of mobile markets with only three national wireless carriers appears to be a bit higher compared to markets with four major mobile service providers. Rewheel did further qualify that in both scenarios, the per gigabyte pricing is dropping -- but three carrier markets are doing so significantly slower than four carrier markets.
According to Sprint, it has remained on track to start the commercial roll out of its VoLTE, or Voice over Long Term Evolution (LTE), despite of an agreement that will have T-Mobile provide LTE roaming to Sprint for a span of four years.
A few days ago, there were rumors that T-Mobile and Sprint will be formally announcing a merger agreement, after several attempts in the past to get the thing done. Well, just this weekend, the two major US wireless carriers have finally confirmed the deal, basically ending all speculation with regards to a tie up.
