Google will support Sprint to broadcast 5G on compatible phones


Google Fi customers can expect 5G connectivity through Sprint. Google is expanding its partnership with the carrier to include 5G, the MVNO leveraging Sprint's infrastructure to roll out 5G.

Sprint builds its network on the mid-range 2.5 GHz spectrum and the industry-leading "Massive MIMO" technology, with the carrier selling 10 times more bandwidth than current LTE networks. The carrier will deploy its 5G network in the first half of 2019 in the following nine cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix and Washington, D.C.

Google Fi customers will be able to access the network in the aforementioned cities provided they use a "Designed for Fi" device compatible with Sprint's 5G network. We should have more details about the devices as the carrier prepares to launch its 5G service.
