Google Fi will rely on Sprint to deliver 5G to compatible phones

But Sprint and other carriers are focusing on these larger markets so they can get as many people connected as possible.

AT&T claims that it has a network speed of over 400 megabits per second that is 100 times faster than 4G in the best of network conditions. Massive MIMO is a breakthrough technology that dramatically improves the capacity of Sprint's LTE Advanced network with equipment that is software upgradable to 5G. He said 5G speeds and coverage will make existing mobile experiences more reliable and consistent.

Samsung Electronics Co. announced on Monday that it will supply Sprint its 5G New Radio (NR) solutions to the USA wireless major to back its commercial 5G network.

T-Mobile's strategy in 5G is different.

Verizon is noted for its first ever 5G product 5 months ago. Since Google Fi recently expanded its support to a much wider variety of devices, it shouldn't take too long to find a compatible phone to take advantage of Fi (veG). But it does not follow the internationally recognized standards on 5G.

So what does Sprint's 5G solution look like and where will it go live?

Although Sprint's 5G coverage and speeds were at the forefront of the operator's MWC press event here, the company also used the occasion to release a wide range of new details about its wider networking and business efforts. The company will start providing service first in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Kansas City. By June, it plans to add New York, Houston, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Washington DC. Interestingly, he avoided a question about whether the network wouldn't be able to reach nationwide without T-Mobile's assistance, and instead said that the merger between the two carriers would help speed up the country's migration to 5G network.

Sprint is excited about the high-frequency airwaves it has accessed from the Clearwire acquisition in 2013. Sprint said that its 5G network will be part of Google Fi network. AT&T this year began to replace the "LTE" icons on some smartphones with a "5G E" icon, saying it showed how AT&T was on the path toward 5G.

The announcement also comes as Sprint advocates for its proposed merger with T-Mobile.
