SPARKING THE 5G ECONOMY AND ASSERTING AMERICAN LEADERSHIP
The New T-Mobile will be the only company able to bring a broad and deep nationwide 5G network to market quickly in the critical first years of the 5G innovation cycle, ensuring America’s leadership position in the digital era.
U.S. MUST Repeat its Leadership of 4G
It is absolutely imperative that the U.S. extends the global innovation, technology and economic leadership it seized during the 4G era. It is easy to forget now, but the 4G revolution unleashed innovation that led to the modern economy we interact with every day. Lyft, Uber, Snapchat, Tinder, Venmo, Square, Instagram…these are companies that simply do not exist without 4G. But 4G didn’t just create a herd of unicorns. Global leaders such as Facebook, Alphabet, Amazon and Netflix adapted their businesses and their growth exploded!
All told mobile technologies accounted for 4.5% of global GDP in 2016 which is equivalent to $3.3 trillion in economic value.
5G is Truly Revolutionary
The capacity, speed and latency of 5G are truly revolutionary. CTIA estimates that 5G will ultimately connect 100X more devices at 100X faster speeds with 10 times projected reduction in response times. Think about what that means for all of the technology already being worked on right now and the applications we can’t even imagine. 5G will unleash new ideas and uses in areas like mobile HD video, connected cities and homes, self-driving cars, smart agriculture, consumer wearables, mobile virtual reality…and even more!!
But Economic Leadership is on the Line!
The projected economic impact from 5G is tremendous. The CTIA expects 5G could create up to 3 million new jobs and $500 billion in economic growth! Unfortunately, other countries see this opportunity as well and have taken bold steps that have given them a head start. CTIA ranks the U.S. behind both China and South Korea in 5G preparedness.
Only T-Mobile Can Create the FIRST Nationwide 5G Network
There is only one company that has the right mix of available spectrum, financial strength and management expertise to create the FIRST nationwide 5G network. That is the New T-Mobile! The lifeblood of the wireless industry is spectrum and to build a 5G network, you need the right mix of available lowband, midband and high band. Only the New T-Mobile will have the right mix of available spectrum. With Sprint’s expansive 2.5 GHz spectrum, T-Mobile’s nationwide 600 MHz spectrum, and other combined assets, the New T-Mobile plans to create the highest capacity network in U.S. history. The U.S. must move quickly and our leadership can do just that. T-Mobile deployed nationwide LTE twice as fast as Verizon and three times as fast as AT&T.
