Sprint customers to move to T-Mobile’s enhanced network on Monday

T-Mobile U.S. will switch more than 1 million Sprint customers to their enhanced 5G network on Monday, according to a report.

The move is expected to result in increased network coverage and faster speeds for eligible Sprint customers who will be automatically switched over.

According to the website PhoneArena.com, the 1 million customers will be chosen from a pool of Sprint’s users who have a compatible 5G device and updated software. With no Apple devices capable of connecting to 5G networks, the report suggests only Android users with a 5G-capable phone will benefit from the move.

After the switchover, those Sprint customers will use T-Mobile’s enhanced 5G network as their primary network. The change will happen automatically, and there is currently no way for Sprint customers to enroll in the program.

News of the switchover was first posted in a Reddit group for Sprint users. The post was later removed after commenters noted the information was proprietary to the company.

Sprint’s merger with T-Mobile was officially consummated on April 1 after both companies received federal regulatory and shareholder approval to combine. The deal was valued at $37 billion.
