T-Mobile US Inc.'s CEO John Legere (pictured) announced on Thursday that the company's nationwide 600 MHz 5G network will be activated on December 6.

He noted that the network will provide access to 200 million customers beginning with the launch date. By the year 2024, speeds will reach 450 Mbps, 10 times more than current LTE network speeds. A minimum of 90% of American residents will be able to use at least 100Mbps speeds by the same year, according to Legere.

Recently, the $26 billion merger deal between T-Mobile US and the Sprint Corp. was greenlighted by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on the condition that the newly formed company provides 5G service to 97% of the American people in the next three years.
