BELLEVUE, Wash.—Officials at the wireless carrier T-Mobile announced areas in and around the city of Bangor and the village of Decatur, both located in southwest Michigan’s Van Buren County, have access to 5G service.
The Michigan towns were among 81 cities and towns across the country that received 5G service. T-Mobile said the new service delivers peak download speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second and average speeds of around 300 megabits per second, 7.5 times faster than today’s average LTE speeds.
T-Mobile claims the nation’s first and largest nationwide 5G network, covering over 250 million people across 1.3 million square miles.
In April, following its merger with Sprint, T-Mobile quickly lit up mid-band 5G in Philadelphia and New York City, with Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. launching soon after. Company officials say engineering teams are on track to light up 1,000 sites per month with 2.5 GHz 5G.
