The best network, 17 years and counting.

As our customers add more devices and find more ways to use them, we’re constantly increasing the density of our network. Since 2000, we've invested more than $126 billion to meet today’s surging demand for wireless data and video, and to get our network ready for 5G wireless technology. 

Our commitment to network excellence has kept us at the top of RootMetrics® U.S. National RootScore® report rankings of wireless carriers in overall, reliability, data and call performance for nine straight reports in a row.*

Putting 5G to work

5G will open up a huge new set of products and mobile trends for our customers. A few of the benefits are high-speed data – connection speeds that are 30 to 50 times faster than 4G – responsiveness and unparalleled video quality.

We’re working with our 5G Technology Forum partners to accelerate 5G for our customers. We believe that 5G will be the foundation for creating more internet-connected devices, making cities smarter, energy grids more efficient, and transportation safer.
