These Are The First 3 Cities Where AT&T Will Roll Out 5G

These Are The First 3 Cities Where AT&T Will Roll Out 5G

AT&T and other carriers have been trialing 5G in fixed configurations and some have big hopes for that technology as a wireless alternative to FTTP or cable modem, at a deployment cost that is considerably less. Thus, the company sets a goal to virtualize 75% of their network by 2020. It's a chicken and egg problem.

This competition and pressure to bring 5G to reality is a good thing for tech users and their smart devices. Today, they delivered more.

"We're working on an aggressive schedule to help ensure customers can enjoy mobile 5G when we launch the network this year".

AT&T launched 5G Evolution last year and plans to offer the faster services broadly by the end of the year. "The faster you get started, the faster you get to scale".

AT&T kicked off its biggest 5G trial network in Waco, using mmWave spectrum and 5G radio and antenna prototypes in December.

The race to 5G is competitive, as rival Verizon also plans on rolling out 5G networks in the near future as well. "The real-world applications of these technologies could open up new opportunities for businesses across all industries to drive outcomes and engage with customers in exciting new ways." said AT&T in a statement.

Telecom operators are expected to invest about $275 billion in infrastructure for 5G, according to research by consulting firm Accenture.

Central Texans will be among the first in the nation to experience 5G - or fifth generation mobile technology - that tech companies say will increase bandwidth and lower latency, meaning consumers will be able to transfer data more quickly. But ultimately the mobile 5G market is likely to be considerably more important than the fixed 5G market.
