Meet the Kotzatoskis, America’s First Family of 5G

With the launch of these 5G-capable superphones, the transformative wireless technology becomes a reality today for the 200 million people in 5,000+ cities and towns from Maine to Florida to California to Hawaii, more than 1 million square miles in total.

That the nation’s first family of 5G hails from the Lancaster area — the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country and home to one of America’s oldest Amish settlements — is indicative of T-Mobile’s 5G network strategy. Together with Sprint, the New T-Mobile plans to bring 5G to All wireless customers, not just those in high-density urban areas. If the merger with Sprint moves forward, the New T-Mobile will be able to build on T-Mobile’s broad 5G foundation, adding critical depth. Only this combination will deliver a 5G network with both breadth and depth, something the other guys simply cannot do as quickly.
“To be a part of history is really exciting. Nationwide 5G only launches once, and we’re the very first! That’s so cool!” said Chandra Kotzatoski. Added Eric Kotzatoski, “Both my son and I are huge gamers, and our family loves technology. We want the latest and greatest. Always. That’s why it’s exciting T-Mobile is bringing 5G to places like Central PA and not just the big cities. We can’t wait for what’s next!”
America only gets its first nationwide 5G network once, so to say this is a *moment* for early adopters is an understatement. Customers who buy a 5G superphone between now and December 22nd will have the opportunity to “flex” their 5G status on social media with #5GFlexContest, and when they tag a friend, they’ll enter to win a FREE OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren smartphone. Even more extra, all those 5G OGs out there can use photo backgrounds and props to level-up their 5G flexing in select T-Mobile stores.
