American opposition to 5G deployment continues to increase due to property value (see 1, 2), public safety (see 1, 2, 3), health (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), and environmental concerns – some of which have been the topic of “Dilbert” cartoons. There is research that has indicated that 5G is NOT SAFE. The majority of scientists worldwide oppose deployment.
Nevertheless – Tampa, Florida has allowed AT&T to operate 5G in some neighborhoods and at their airport. T-Mobile, who’s been told to stop advertising that their 5G is more reliable, has now expanded their coverage in the bay area. Verizon will be running it at the Super Bowl. Sounds hot!

T-Mobile turns on 2.5 GHz, 39 GHz ahead of Super Bowl LV
T-Mobile is prepped for Super Bowl LV this Sunday, having bolstered the Tampa area with mid-band spectrum for 5G and bringing all three “layers” of the carrier’s 5G to Raymond James Stadium.
T-Mobile already rolled out 5G in Tampa using low-band 600 MHz spectrum, and on Tuesday said that 2.5 GHz is now live in and around parts of Tampa Bay.
The speedier 2.5 GHz service is available in parts of the downtown area, as well as Hyde Park, Ybor City and surrounding cities of St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Dade City. T-Mobile’s 2.5 GHz deployments are expected to lift performance, providing a sweet spot for coverage and capacity versus respective shortcomings of mmWave and low-band spectrum.
As for the Raymond James Stadium where the Kansas City Chiefs are set to face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers over the weekend, the venue was equipped with a mix of low-, mid-, and high-band spectrum for T-Mobile’s full so-called “layer cake” 5G. That includes inside the stadium and the surrounding parking lot. T-Mobile is using mmWave spectrum in the 39 GHz band.
T-Mobile brands its mid-band and millimeter wave flavors of 5G as ‘Ultra Capacity’ versus the “Extended Range” 600 MHz deployments used for broader nationwide 5G coverage.
Of course, this year’s big game will be different than prior Super Bowls, with only limited in-person attendance.
T-Mobile President of Technology Neville Ray confirmed the network upgrades on Twitter, noting as in years before, the enhancements aren’t temporary and will stick around after the final score on February 7.
Super Bowl comes once a year.. but these Tampa Bay @TMobile 5G network upgrades are permanent!

All three carriers have been talking up pre-game day 5G network improvements in the Tampa Bay area.

High-speed internet is achievable, safer, and more secure with a hard-wired internet connection – not 5G or WiFi. Despite increasing expert warnings and opposition, it’s obviously still being installed where it hasn’t been banned. Your neighborhood and your yard may be next. Americans opposed to 5G deployment may sign this letter asking President Biden and Vice President Harris to stop deployment. Doctors, scientists, and telecom whistleblowers have endorsed a petition to boycott 5G phones.
