This move makes T-Mobile the largest 5G network in the country now as it covers even rural America, covering over 1 million square miles. To be honest, for most people, that's probably a fair trade-off.

Today, the company went ahead and flipped the switch for its 5G network, though no one can actually use it until later this week. T-Mobile did not answer that question.
