Nokia, T-Mobile to roll out nationwide 5G multi-band network in the U.S.
Nokia (NOK) and T-Mobile (TMUS) are to roll out a nationwide 5G multi-band network in the United States using the commercial Nokia 5G solution. Nokia will also further advance T-Mobile's existing 4G LTE network, providing advanced radio access network support for 4G and 5G subscribers. Nokia will begin building the network during the second quarter of 2018, completing the deployment during 2020. By the end of this year, the 5G RAN will be deployed using both 600MHz and 28GHz mmWave AirScale solutions for the delivery of multi-gigabit speeds and ultra-low latency in some of the most heavily populated areas of the country, including Dallas. This will enable T-Mobile to introduce innovative services for its customers at home, work and on the move. NOK TMUS
