T-Mobile has completed the expansion of its 5G coverage across Upstate New York.

The telco says that its 5G coverage now reaches more than 48,000 square miles across the state.

As part of the expansion, the carrier has added nearly 400 new cell sites and upgrades to more than 800 existing towers across the region.

“Whether it’s the Catskill Mountains or Niagara Falls, Upstate New York is home to some of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, so our 5G network upgrades and expansion will better serve customers who both live in and visit this part of the Empire State,” said Luis Reyes, VP, field engineering for the Northeast region at T-Mobile.

“Network coverage, reliable service, and speed are among the top priorities for wireless consumers, businesses, and public safety organizations, and we plan to continue building new installations and making upgrades to existing sites in Upstate New York in 2024.”

The telco recently launched 5G at Albany Airport, Clarkson University, Fair Haven State Park, Fort Drum, Lake Placid, and SUNY Plattsburgh.

Back in August 2022, T-Mobile switched its 5G service on at one of the US's most iconic sports grounds, the Yankee Stadium in New York City.
