Mobile gives prepaid customers the 5G luxury

Metro to be the first U.S. pre-paid carrier to offer 5G service next year

Metro by T-Mobile will be launching its 5G pre-paid wireless service in 2019, T-Mobile, the third largest telecom operator in the U.S., announced today.

But "cable companies have begun offering wireless phone service that uses networks built by big mobile carriers - a trend that could ease the way" for the companies to merge, Bloomberg's Todd Shields and Scott Moritz wrote Friday.

As reported by CNET, T-Mobile's Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray said the carrier's pending 5G launch will be sold through all of the operator's outlets, including its prepaid brand. Still, it isn't necessarily a given that prepaid networks will offer 5G just because their parent companies do, so it's nice to have the commitment nonetheless.

The newly renamed carrier officially launched on Monday, part of the former MetroPCS' attempt to alter what for many people is a negative view of the "prepaid wireless" category. But with 5G, it appears that Metro will have access to T-Mobile's 5G network right from the moment the switch is toggled to "on".

And 5G itself is all about blazing-fast wireless speeds and low latency (a measure of network responsiveness), with early deployments by Verizon focusing more on 5G as a broadband alternative in the home.

Metro installed a pop-up store in New York City's Grand Central Terminal that lets visitors see interactive demos of its combined services on October 8-9. Many also assumed that service would only be offered through top-tier post-paid services but T-Mobile is smashing that notion with today's Metro announcement. There's not a better value in wireless. T-Mobile Us accounts for about 1.1% of Verde Servicos Internacionais S.A.'s investment portfolio, making the stock its 25th largest position. "They're refusing to make a compromise". Plus, members can get deep discounts on select popular products at Whole Foods Market and an additional 10 percent off hundreds of sale items. Prime members also receive unlimited free photo storage with Amazon Photos. United Services Automobile Association's holdings in T-Mobile Us were worth $23,365,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

Metro by T-Mobile is the only wireless provider to offer plans with Google One. As a group, analysts expect that T-Mobile Us Inc will post 3.18 earnings per share for the current year.

The upshot for T-Mobile is that low-band spectrum like 600-MHz will allow the carrier to quickly cover large geographic areas of the USA with 5G due to the propagation characteristics of the spectrum. Based in Bellevue, Washington, T-Mobile US provides services through its subsidiaries and operates its flagship brands, T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile.
