5G Release Date on the Horizon
AT&T Announces 5G Release Date
5G is on the horizon. Everyone in the know is looking forward to all this new wireless technology is promising to offer us – higher speed, more responsiveness, the ability to connect more devices and much more? So, when is it finally going to get here & who will the frontrunners in offering it be?
While all the primary wireless network players are sure to have stakes in the game, AT&T is definitely coming out swinging. They already have 5G networks up and running in Waco, Texas, Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Bend, Indiana and have also announced their goal of offering 5G networks in an almost a dozen more cities by the end of 2018 – Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Louisville, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, Raleigh, and San Antonio. Moving into 2019 AT&T plans to introduce the new wireless technology in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Nashville, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose. They plan to use Ericsson, Nokia, and Samsung as their vendors to make this happen.
Another thing that AT&T is doing to stop on top of the game is making sure that their users can have access to some of the benefits of 5G, even before the expected rollout of 5G capable phones in 2019. In a recent announcement, AT&T stated that “While we are rolling out mobile 5G in 2018, we also plan to continue to enhance our network with 5G Evolution technology in hundreds of additional metro areas.” The company went on to say, “We will give you more options to access our latest wireless network offers by making additional 5G Evolution-capable devices available throughout the year.” One of their plans is to offer “pucks,” which will operate much like mobile hotspots and will allow some users to try out certain 5G’s features.
AT&T predicts “Future smart factories and retailers, self-driving cars, untethered virtual and augmented realities, and other yet to be discovered experiences will grow up on tomorrow’s 5G networks,” AT&T CTO Andre Fuetsch said.
