Everyone: Make 5G Phones Cost Less; T-Mobile: Meet REVVL 5G

BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 27, 2020--

‘Affordable 5G smartphone’ is no longer an oxymoron. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today continued to deliver #5GforALL, unveiling the next generation of the company’s REVVL smartphones: REVVL 4, REVVL 4+ and REVVL 5G, the most affordable 5G smartphone in the US ever! And to really crush that price barrier that’s keeping people from enjoying 5G, anyone switching or adding a line can get the REVVL 5G at T-Mobile for just $200 after 24 bill credits — half off its regular $399.99 price. The REVVL 4 and REVVL4+ tap into T-Mobile’s LTE network whereas the REVVL 5G taps into T-Mobile’s LTE and 5G (600 MHz and 2.5 GHz) on the first and largest nationwide 5G network. And to truly bring #5GforALL for both prepaid and postpaid, all three REVVL phones are coming to T-Mobile and — for the first time EVER — Metro by T-Mobile on September 4.

“We’ve made incredible waves in 5G — with more coverage than AT&T and Verizon combined and the WORLD’s first standalone 5G — but we knew to truly make #5GforALL a reality, we needed more affordable 5G smartphones,” said Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile. “And that’s why we’re launching the REVVL 5G — to smash one of the last remaining hurdles keeping people from getting 5G, at a time when America needs reliable connectivity the most.”

Making Reliable 5G Connectivity More Affordable

People are turning to their mobile devices even more to stay connected. An eMarketer 2 study found that for the first time, adults will spend more than 3 hours a day on smartphones in 2020, a 13.9% increase over 2019! People are looking for more ways to stay connected without breaking the bank … now more than ever. Yet, 5G smartphones typically cost upwards of $1000. A recent Civic Science survey 1 showed that 56% of consumers familiar with 5G worry about that high cost.

With REVVL 5G, T-Mobile continues to make more reliable 5G coverage more affordable to millions, helping them stay better connected on the nation’s largest 5G network. Meanwhile, Verizon is still over there making their customers pay a premium for 5G smartphones that get a 5G signal just 0.4% of the time. #TruthHurts
