T-Mobile and SpaceX have announced a new partnership to bring 5G connectivity to more regions in the United States, with new plans for SpaceX Starlink satellites.
Both companies are looking to provide 5G coverage to areas in the US where it is not currently available.
“We have always thought differently about what it means to keep customers connected, which is why we work with the best to deliver coverage that goes beyond anything customers have seen before,” said Mike Seifert, CEO of T-Mobile. “More than just a pioneering alliance, this represents two great innovators in the industry who are challenging old ways of doing things to create something completely new that will increase communication between customers and intimidate competitors.”
“The important thing about this is that it means that there are no dead zones anywhere in the world for your cell phone,” said SpaceX chief engineer Elon Musk. “We are very excited to be doing this with T-Mobile.”
To provide this service, the companies will create a new network, broadcast from Starlink satellites using T-Mobile’s mid-band spectrum nationwide. This true satellite to cellular service will provide complete coverage almost anywhere the customer can see the sky.
