Sprint is launching its 5G network in Chicago this week.
Utilizing the company’s 2.6 GHz (band 41) spectrum, the network
offers better coverage and building penetration than the mmWave 5G
networks launched by other companies in Chicago to date. The
coverage area reaches from the historic IL-64 in the north to
Stevenson Expressway in the south, and as far as California Avenue
in the west. It covers 700,000 people. Chicago joins Atlanta,
Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and Kansas City among Sprint’s 5G
cities, and the company promises to launch 5G in Los Angeles, New
York City, Phoenix, and Washington, DC “in the coming weeks”.
Sprint customers in Chicago will be able to buy a 5G device
starting Friday, July 12th. Sprint currently offers the LG V50
ThinQ 5G and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
