5G Claims and Impact Assessment


To understand 5G carrier claims, consumers perception, the impact of 5G on Auto, healthcare, and IoT sectors, as well as key phone and carrier choice drivers for US consumers in order to facilitate a business pitch.

Early Findings


  • Verizon claims that 5G will be 2x faster than 4G and that "Verizon Wireless 5G is ready to unlock the future of immersive experiences."
  • Verizon also claims that its 5G will deliver "ultra-low lag times with virtually no buffering" and offer "more capacity for more devices in the same place at the same time."


  • Sprint announced in February this year that it will roll out its 5G network across 4 cities in the US in May and the company kept its word and launched 5G in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and Kansas City. It has also recently launched the service in Chicago.
  • Sprint claims that its current 5G network is already delivering 2x the previous speed in "areas of Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and Kansas City. Sprint also expects to launch service in areas of Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington, D.C., covering approximately 2,100 square miles and 11 million people total across all nine market areas."
  • Sprint also claims that it has the largest 5G coverage in the US currently.


  • T-Mobile claims that it is the "only company able to bring a broad and deep nationwide 5G network to market quickly in the critical first years of the 5G innovation cycle, ensuring America’s leadership position in the digital era."
  • In addition, they claim that by 2024, "the New TMobile nationwide 5G network will deliver a supercharged network delivering 8X more total capacity than standalone TMobile plus Sprint would have today, with 5G speeds four to six times what they could achieve on their own. With Sprint’s expansive 2.5 GHz spectrum, TMobile’s nationwide 600 MHz spectrum, and other combined assets, the New TMobile plans to create the highest capacity network in U.S. history."
  • T-Mobile is already delivering 5G and the faster connections they promise in select locations in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Cleveland, and Atlanta.
