AT&T’s 5G network is now live for consumers in 90 additional markets across the country and covers more than 120 million people. With this launch, AT&T now offers access to 5G on its best unlimited wireless plans for consumers and businesses in a total of 190 markets in the U.S.
“At a time when technology is proving to be even more essential for communication, AT&T customers can rest assured that our company is continuing to invest in our network and new technologies to make connection easier,” said Chris Sambar, EVP of Technology Operations. “We remain focused on launching AT&T 5G in more markets and to more customers across the country – building on the nation’s best and fastest wireless network – and plan to reach nationwide coverage this summer.”
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 is excited to continue to unlock new experiences for more customers.
This week, AT&T is introducing its 5G network to 20 more markets. With this latest news, it now provides access to 5G1 on its unlimited wireless plans for consumers and businesses in a total of 100 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
AT&T 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 80 million people. 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 millimeter wave service though with more limited coverage. Results continue to be impressive – it has 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.
