T-Mobile might not be the number one US carrier in terms of subscribers (yet), but many wireless industry analysts seem to believe Verizon’s supremacy will not last forever. The main reason why Big Red is expected to waste away its advantage, which looked pretty much impossible to overcome not that long ago, is Magenta’s early lead in the 5G infrastructure field.
Yet another 5G coverage update and an optimistic look toward the future
In fact, Neville Ray claims this is now the “largest 5G FDD network” in the whole wide world, occupying no less than 1.7 million square miles (up from 1.6 million last month) for nearly twice AT&T’s 5G footprint and more than four times (!!!) the size of Verizon’s 5G coverage.
The most reliable 5G network in the US
But here we are, commending Magenta’s narrow nationwide 5G speed lead over Verizon, as well as its significantly larger advantages in both 5G reliability and 5G coverage, ultimately yielding a total “5G score” of 707 (out of 1000 maximum points), compared to 632 and 599 for Ma Bell and Big Red respectively.
