Win Hard. Play Hard
T-Mobile is America’s 5G leader with the largest, fastest and most reliable 5G network – and the new REVVL V+ 5G smartphone taps into T-Mobile’s Extended Range 5G for nationwide coverage and Ultra Capacity 5G for super-fast speeds. To celebrate all those 5G wins, T-Mobile is rolling out an AR game, challenging customers to light up T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G map as quickly as possible. It’s not only fun – it could win you a free REVVL V+ 5G!

T-Mobile’s Extended Range 5G covers 300 million people across 1.6 million square miles — that’s nearly 2x more coverage than AT&T and 4x more than Verizon. It covers 92 percent of Interstate Highway miles across America vs just 68 percent for AT&T and 51 percent for Verizon. Plus, with Sprint now part of T-Mobile, the Un-carrier is widening its lead, lighting up Ultra Capacity 5G across the country and bringing fast 5G speeds to more places than anyone else. Ultra Capacity 5G can deliver average speeds of 325 Mbps with peaks of 1 Gbps, and now covers 150 million people.
