T-Mobile deploys 5G upgrades in New York’s Yankee Stadium

T-Mobile has brought 5G connectivity to New York’s legendary Yankee Stadium, allowing visitors to use 5G-enabled devices at speeds of up to 10 times faster

T-Mobile has announced that it is offering 5G enhancements in the famous New York Yankee Stadium. 

Now, T-Mobile customers visiting the stadium can use their 5G-enabled devices (at speeds of up to 10 times faster than before). T-Mobile has launched Ultra Capacity 5G in select sections and - for visitors with older LTE phones - the stadium’s capacity for LTE has been doubled.  

And, according to T-Mobile, this is the start of their 5G upgrades, with more in-stadium connectivity advancements to come.

To celebrate these landmark 5G enhancements, T-Mobile and Major League Baseball took a drone on a tour of the stadium. 

This behind-the-scenes flight tours the stadium, and even features the baseball legends Hideki Matsui and Bernie Williams. 

“Yankee Stadium is home to one of the most iconic franchises in the history of American sports,” commented Neville Ray, President of Technology at T-Mobile. 

“Now, New Yorkers and people visiting from across the country to catch a game have access to ultra-fast, reliable 5G so they can share more of that experience.”

“We are excited to have the power of T-Mobile’s Ultra Capacity 5G network in Yankee Stadium and look forward to continuing to work together with T-Mobile to enhance the in-stadium experience for our fans,” added Mike Lane, New York Yankees Chief Information Officer and Senior Vice President, Technology and Broadcasting.

T-Mobile has the largest, fastest and most reliable 5G network in America, and its Extended Range 5G is available to 320 million Americans, across 1.8 million square miles.
