T-Mobile Shuts Down Sprint’s 5G Network

SprintNow that T-Mobile has completed its merger with Sprint, T-Mobile has started the process of combining their networks. To that, T-Mobile has now shut down Sprint’s 2.5GHz 5G service.

T-Mobile has already re-deployed their new 2.5GHz spectrum in New York City, parts of Chicago, Houston, and Los Angeles.

Sprint’s 5G service is no longer accessible to customers who have older 5G-enabled smartphones like the Galaxy S10 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, and the LG V50 ThinQ. If you own any of these phones, you will have to upgrade to a newer 5G phone that uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon X55 5G modem to be able to access T-Mobile’s 5G network. Apart from the Galaxy S20 5G, phones like the LG V60 ThinQ and OnePlus 8 5G are also compatible with the Magenta carrier’s 5G network.

T-Mobile said:

We are working to quickly re-deploy, optimize and test the 2.5 GHz spectrum before lighting it up on the T-Mobile network. In the meantime, legacy Sprint customers with compatible devices can enjoy T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network
