5G is the future of wireless technology and is poised to jumpstart the next wave of unforeseen mobile innovation. As the first to introduce the U.S. to mobile 5G, AT&T has seen its power and it continues to unlock new experiences for more customers.
AT&T is introducing its 5G network to 13 markets. With this latest news, it now provides access to 5G on its best unlimited wireless plans for consumers and businesses in a total of 32 markets across the U.S.
And 5G+ is now available in parts of 35 cities for customers with compatible plans and devices.
Two flavors of next generation 5G technology
The company is building its more widely available 5G network on the Nation’s Best Wireless Network using low-band spectrum. This service now covers more than 50 million people, and it plans to have nationwide coverage in the first half of 2020. This service offers impressive speeds over broader distances than 5G+ and is ideal for mobile customers who need performance while on the go.
The company offers an enhanced wireless experience on 5G+ with our millimeter wave service though with more limited coverage. Results continue to be impressive – we have seen a peak download speed of over 2 Gbps — where customers at select businesses, universities, hospitals and sports venues are beginning to see the early benefits.
