Sprint has flipped the 5G switch in parts of Chicago, IL.
With this, Sprint says that its 5G network covers roughly 700,000 people in the Windy City. And of course, Sprint isn’t close to being done. In the coming weeks, 5G is expected to launch in areas of Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington DC.
Where Can I Find It?
True Mobile 5G from Sprint is available from the historic IL-64 in the north to Stevenson Expressway in the south, and as far as California Avenue in the west to the periphery of Lake Michigan in the east. Sprint 5G covers popular destinations such as Magnificent Mile, River North, Millennium Park, River Front, The Loop and Grant Park, as well as the neighborhoods of Gold Coast, Old Town, West Loop, Ukrainian Village, Medical Village, University of Illinois at Chicago, South Loop and more.
Of course, to access it, you’ll need a 5G-capable device. Beginning tomorrow, July 12, Sprint’s lineup of 5G devices, which are the LG V50, HTC 5G Hub, and Galaxy S10 5G will be available in select Sprint retail stores in Chicago. Sprint will expand LG V50 and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G availability nationwide to Sprint stores beginning on July 19.
You hear that? That’s the sound of progress.
