Sprint Product Ambassadors – A glimpse of Sprint_5G in Reston VA from the LG V50 ThinQ

Sprint Product Ambassador

Having owned the LG V50 ThinQ for over two months, I can't wait to test out the Sprint 5G in Washington DC.  From Sprint, the launch will be a few weeks away.


Last week, during my lunch time walk, I accidentally saw a 5G symbol on my LG V50, so surprised as the launch has not been announced. I quickly started the Ookla speedtest on my phone.  It must be that the 5G was enabled for testing or something, as the phone toggled between 5G and LTE while I was walking.


Below is the screen capture of the speedtest results:

The results show 5G is more than twice as fast as LTE.  I cannot wait until the official launch date to roam around the 5G deployment area to test out the power of the LG V50 ThinQ 5G phone!
