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.

“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.
