T-Mobile Secures $2.67 Billion DoD Contract for Mobile Solutions, Expanding 5G and IoT Capabilities

The U.S. Department of the Navy has selected T-Mobile US for a $2.67 billion Spiraling 4 contract, allowing the Department of Defense (DoD) to order mobile services and supplies from T-Mobile for the next ten years, expanding 5G and IoT capabilities. This contract includes voice, data, fixed wireless solutions, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobility management solutions, enhancing mission-critical communications and network solutions for military and federal civilian agencies. T-Mobile’s offerings have significantly expanded since the previous Spiral 3 contract, now including 5G and hybrid networks tailored to government needs. T-Mobile also introduced “Government Internet,” a 5G mobile device for primary or backup internet connectivity. Future plans include leveraging T-Mobile’s partnership with SpaceX for near-universal connectivity through Starlink satellites. Meanwhile, Verizon Public Sector continues its strong presence with the DoD, securing contracts like a $15 million task order with Navy Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) and a $28.35 million contract for integrated voice and data services. Verizon also won a $2 billion, 15-year contract with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for their next-generation communications platform.

With the signing of this new contract, all Department of Defense organizations will be able to order mobile services and supplies from T-Mobile for the following ten years, expanding 5G and IoT capabilities

The U.S. Department of the Navy has chosen T-Mobile US as a provider of mobile solutions as part of the$ 2.67 billion Spiraling 4 contract, according to a release.
