Overnight data outage left T-Mobile customers without service

T-Mobile customers in many cities across the United States were left without cellular service and LTE data as the carrier suffered an overnight outage. At 03:31am in the morning, T-Mobile confirmed the presence of a problem on its Twitter account, and by 5:47, it announced that service was back again. The carrier hasn't revealed the cause for the outage.

Recently, T-Mobile conducted 5G network tests in partnership wirh Nokia, Ericsson, and Samsung. It achieved speeds of up to 12Gbps with latency under 2 milliseconds. For example, this speed allows for four simultaneous 4K video streams at once. But 5G-connected consumer smartphones aren't expected until 2020, although it seems like the wait will be worth it.
