Sprint's 5G network will come to select cities in May

Google Fi to offer 5G thanks to Sprint, provided you have a compatible handset

When this rolls out, Google Fi customers with Sprint 5G compatible Designed for Fi phones in a 5G coverage area will be automatically connected to the network, quite similar to today's seamless transitions between cellular networks, depending on the location.

However, left unsaid by the operator during its media event here at the Mobile World Congress trade show was any indication about how it might actually make money from 5G. They include Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. From the start, the company is designing mobile 5G footprints covering these downtown metros.

Combes is digging at AT&T, which launched its mobile 5G network in December but has only a mobile hotspot to use it, not a smartphone. The first one will be the LG V50 ThinQ 5G.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will be a limited exclusive to Verizon at first because the device is using super-high frequency bands that match better with Verizon's 5G network (28 and 39 GHz). And Sprint are set for launch in four cities, starting in May.

In New York, Sprint promises coverage in Midtown and lower Manhattan; in Dallas, Sprint says it'll cover 230 square miles of the Dallas Fort Worth area.

Sprint this week, announced that its unprecedented commercial 5G network will launch in May. 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. Hatch's cloud gaming service offers unlimited on-demand access to a curated lineup of more than 100 premium mobile games, though company representatives noted that a large number of those games can work on LTE networks with latency in the range of 50-20 ms.

Sprint said it would devote 60MHz to LTE and 60MHz to 5G on its 2.5GHz spectrum.
