Some carriers are using their existing midband (2.5 GHz) spectrum to build their 5G network.
-- In a FCC filing submitted Tuesday (7/2), ACA Connects -- America's Communications Association, Competitive Carriers Association and Charter Communications teamed to present a comprehensive proposal for repurposing a large portion of valuable midband spectrum, C-Band spectrum (3.7-4.2 GHz) — at least 370 megahertz or more — for 5G wireless services.
Sprint's (https://www.fool.com/investing/2019/04/26/is-the-t-mobilesprint-merger-in-trouble.aspx) potential suitor , T-Mobile, also recently got into the game, with a (https://www.t-mobile.com/news/the-5g-status-quo-is-clearly-not-good-enough) blog post  that basically destroyed Verizon's new $10-per-month 5G upgrade in Chicago and Minneapolis as spotty, unreliable, and a "rush job." T-Mobile suggests that mmWave spectrum isn't sufficient for large swaths of the country and that it will be rolling out "real" 5G in the future on a combination of mmWave, midband 2.5 GHz spectrum, and low-end 600 MHz spectrum. 
has not auctioned off "midband" spectrum that is better suited to serve rural areas because of how far it can carry signals, and that the Trump administration's actions on 5G have "set us back." She cited tariffs on telecom equipment that have raised costs and said the administration has been "alienating allies" on the 5G security issue.
Meanwhile, NTCA is involved in several current proceedings at the FCC that have the potential to change the terms of access (for better or worse) for midband spectrum that could enable broadband availability.
The US administration was shocked when CTIA CEO Meredith Attwell Baker urged US legislators to act quickly to address issues, including a lack of midband spectrum, to ensure the country is a 5G leader.
Analyses were performed with an FTIR spectrometer (Vertex 70v, Bruker Optik GmbH) coupled with an infrared microscope (Hyperion 2000, Bruker Optics GmbH) equipped with a standard single element midband photoconductive mercury-cadmiumtelluride (MCT) detector cooled by liquid nitrogen, a 20x Cassegrain objective, and a Ge ATR crystal.
This region is known as midband region, as shown in Figure 2(b).
HPUE can extend Sprint's 2.5GHz coverage by up to 30 percent to nearly match its midband 1.9GHz spectrum performance, including indoors where the majority of wireless traffic is generated.
Ericsson has launched a new radio product, AIR 3246 for Massive Multiple Input Multiple Output (Massive MIMO), which enable operators to bring 5G to subscribers using today's midband spectrum and boost capacity in their LTE networks.
This launch will enable operators -- especially in metropolitan areas -- to bring 5G to subscribers using today's midband spectrum and boost capacity in their LTE networks.
