Sprint last week announced plans to develop and deploy a wide-scale 2.5GHz 5G network in partnership with Qualcomm and its parent company SoftBank. 

The Operator said it plans to provide commercial services and devices in late 2019. 

The companies have jointly agreed to develop technologies for 5G, including the 3GPP New Radio (NR) standard in Band 41 (2.5GHz) for accelerated wide-scale 5G deployments. 

The existing 3GPP standard for Band 41 is touted as a model to accelerate the deployment of 5G as Sprint and Softbank have numerous licenses for that spectrum.
