Ad - Welcome to the Google Fi Help Community. None have been specified yet but the first 5G phones should be released Q3 2019 if my guess is right. No special knowledge just guessing from what John Legere of TMobile said previously. No word from Fi yet on this.

Now that T-Mobile announced Nationwide 5g will launch on their Network in December 2019, are there plans to support it on Google Fi and for which phones?

I imagine 5G is still a year or two from being a viable product, meaning usable for many folks.  It will be a slow roll out and I wouldn’t expect to see much outside of major cities for quite a while.

It'll be available for 200 million people next month and not just 4 or 5 major cities. See announcement and coverage here: https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/4g-lte-5g-networks?icid=WMM_TMO_U_195G4GOOD_4CGP942I0FQO535T18781

Yup, we saw that. Doesn't make a difference. Fi uses T-Mobile AND Sprint AND US Cellular, so all of those carriers would need to have 5G before Fi could offer consistent 5G.

T-Mobile has a history of exaggerating their coverage data just a tad.  For that matter, all cellular providers share this penchant. In my own case, my T-Mobile coverage map recently changed to list my address as improving to good versus fair coverage last year.  When I examined the signal through diagnostics, the signal didn’t improve one iota.  Still that way today.  I had a similar experience with US Cellular when they announced 4G coverage for my area in 2012 by the 4th quarter.  Bought a 4G capable phone in anticipation of this.  A year and a half later, I was finally able to see 4G coverage.  T-Mobile will get there eventually, as will the other major providers, but I would take their prognostications with a grain of salt.
