T-Mobile recently entered into a new roaming deal that will bring 5G capabilities into a total of 50 states across the U.S. The roaming deal was in collaboration with GCI, and it will extend coverage into Anchorage and Alaska. The new agreement makes T-Mobile the first cellphone carrier to extend coverage into a total of 50 states, which is a significant accomplishment for the company.
Offering 5G across the entire United States could incentivize customers who live in remote areas, or who travel frequently to choose T-Mobile over other carriers.
The two organizations have a long history of collaboration, and the GCI Chief Operating Officer, Greg Chapados, spoke about the collaboration, "Today’s partnership marks another first and a tremendous milestone! GCI congratulates the T-Mobile team on being the first wireless provider to offer 5G service in all 50 states. The partnership is a win for both companies and for GCI customers who will be able to access 5G service on the nation’s largest 5G network.”
