The journey into the next generation nationwide 5G network is already happening. While you can expect new wireless experiences to be developed, 5G represents an ongoing evolution of technology.
5G will build on the existing, robust LTE and LTE-Advanced technology and infrastructure that has made the United States a global leader in technology and connectivity.
Wireless networks are evolving
5G is the latest generation of mobile communication
Our wireless network has evolved drastically in the last few decades and helped forever change how we function as a society. These may look like steps, but some of these changes fundamentally transformed how we interact every day — like when we started to see mobile phones in the 80s and then again with the introduction and mass adoption of the smartphone in the late 2000s.

That’s why making sure we bring you the best mobile network — which has seen a 580,000% increase in data traffic since 2007 — is a top priority. With increased speeds, past generations of network technology paved the way for video chatting, livestreaming, ridesharing and more. What started as bold new ideas are now part of our everyday lives. But 5G is much more than a massive boost in speed.
