As part of the deal, Finland-based company Nokia will provide T-Mobile with its complete end-to-end 5G technology, software and services portfolio.

The two firms will work together to ensure T-Mobile continues in its efforts to bring 5G network to the market for its customers during the pivotal early years of the new technology.

Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer at T-Mobile, said: “We are all in on 5G.”
