From the country’s largest carriers building out their 5G networks to intervention from the FCC and the U.S. government, here are ten of the biggest news stories in the 5G world that made the news so far this year.

T-Mobile Unveils 5G "Layer Cake"

Thanks to its merger with Sprint, T-Mobile is one of the few carriers bringing together low-band, mid-band, and high-band millimeter wave technology to complete what T-Mobile is calling its three-layer vision for 5G, also known as the full “layer cake.”

T-Mobile currently has arguably the most thorough strategy for deploying 5G of the U.S.-based wireless providers. The carrier doesn‘t have the 5G footprint that AT&T and Verizon have today, but the T-Mobile has plans to cover the country with high-speed 5G that can also travel long distances.

T-Mobile‘s president of technology Neville Ray said that customers in New York City are the first to have access to and take advantage of the carrier’s “layer cake” approach to 5G.
