Metro by T-Mobile will be launching its 5G pre-paid wireless service in 2019, T-Mobile, the third largest telecom operator in the USA, announced today. The company offers voice, messaging, and data services to 72.6 million customers in the postpaid, prepaid, and wholesale markets.

T-Mobile said Metro will offer 5G service next year although specifics - like an exact launch date, device support and pricing - weren't mentioned. Considering that Metro uses T-Mobile's network to provide service, it makes sense that it will begin offering 5G service around the time T-Mobile does. 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.

Pre-paid wireless services aren't what they used to be. 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".

5G wireless networks are already being installed in major cities across the country. The plans that include subscriptions to Amazon Prime and Google One can be purchased directly from Metro by T-Mobile as of today. "There's not a better value in wireless", said Tom Keys, President, Metro by T-Mobile. "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. Google One is a plan that gives you expanded storage that you can share with your family, direct access to Google experts and other members-only benefits across Google - and, it comes with mobile backup so you can securely back up your phone's photos, videos and multimedia messages sent via Android Messages.

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 United States with 5G due to the propagation characteristics of the spectrum.
