Having previously set general targets for its initial launch of 5G services and devices in the United States, Sprint says today that it will begin offering 5G in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Kansas City on May 31, with its first 5G device preorders starting tomorrow, May 17. Users will be able to use LG’s V50 ThinQ 5G as a smartphone, or HTC’s 5G Hub to provide 5G network connectivity to multiple Wi-Fi devices.
The fourth-place U.S. carrier is offering aggressive pricing on both of the devices, and a less expensive — albeit limited — 5G plan than rivals Verizon and AT&T. Sprint says that it will offer 100GB of “high-speed data” for $60 per month, $10 less than AT&T is charging for a much smaller quantity of 5G data, and $25 less than Verizon’s most affordable unlimited 5G plan.
