T-Mobile has has once again reaped the benefits of its Sprint merger synergy by winning the July 2022 award for operating the best 5G network in the United States. The rating is given by the independent research firm Umlaut whose last report found T-Mobile with the widest 5G coverage and most stable next-gen network.

T-Mobile vs AT&T vs Verizon 5G passive and active network speeds
With the recent deployment of C-band midrange by Ma Bell and Big Red, the equation may change, but T-Mobile’s catch-up process will be slow and painful for them. The one category where Verizon’s speedy but very limited 5G network shines is overall latency.
Network latency, stability and coverage T-Mobile vs AT&T vs Verizon 5G
Fortunately, in terms of greater 4G LTE coverage, AT&T and Verizon are ahead of T-Mobile, especially in rural areas, but its rapid deployment of the 5G network made possible by the midband frequencies it inherited from Sprint has now made Big Magenta the current market leader where it offers a signal.
Umlaut’s tests are crowdsourced, that is, carried out by people who tend to congregate in cities and especially in their most central parts where T-Mobile has coverage that is on par with the best of them.
