T-Mobile has signed a 12-year agreement with cell tower partner Crown Castle as it continues to expand market-leading 5G network

T-Mobile US has announced a 12-year deal with Crown Castle International Corp. to support the continued build-out of T-Mobile's nationwide 5G network. The agreement will provide increased access to Crown Castle's towers and small cell locations and enables the Un-carrier to further expand its leading 5G network across the US.

“T-Mobile’s expanded alliance with long-term partner Crown Castle will fuel acceleration of our nationwide network build and provide synergies that we can further invest into that build – all in support of our Un-carrier mission to truly deliver 5G FOR ALL,” said Neville Ray, president of Technology at T-Mobile. 

“This agreement is another integral piece of T-Mobile’s ongoing efforts to rapidly expand what is already America’s largest 5G network. We won’t stop focusing on reaching even more customers and delivering fast 5G speeds to more people – every day and into the future.”

Crown Castle and T-Mobile meet future network demand

Crown Castle’s CEO Jay Bowen said they were excited to build on the existing relationship with T-Mobile as it continues to roll out next-generation 5G.

"T-Mobile and Crown Castle are ideal partners for this next phase as wireless network architecture continues to densify,” said Bowen. “We believe T-Mobile's significant long-term commitment to utilise our comprehensive infrastructure consisting of towers, small cells and fibre will enable our collective teams to quickly meet future network demands."

T-Mobile delivers the largest, fastest, and most reliable 5G network in the US, including nationwide Ultra Capacity 5G. Based in Bellevue, Washington, T-Mobile operates flagship brands T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile and Sprint.

Crown Castle has a nationwide communications infrastructure spanning more than 40,000 towers and 80,000 miles of fibre.
