AT&T to Launch 5G in a dozen cities

  • AT&T 5G

Austin is one of 23 US cities where AT&T has been testing its 5G Evolution network, which is known as a faster version of the 4G networks but not a full 5G service.

We plan to offer mobile 5G to customers in a dozen cities, including parts of Dallas, Atlanta and Waco, Texas, by the end of this year.

US carriers have used 5G announcements to create excitement and market themselves - especially since building the network infrastructure is such a pricey investment, said Sundeep Rangan, a fellow for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and an associate professor of engineering at New York University. The company added that it will keep an "aggressive schedule" for rolling out its network.

The term '5G' is a somewhat ill-defined one at present, with different carriers using the term to refer to different speeds, but AT&T is keen to stress that its own service will be based on 3GPP standards.

In today's Tech Bytes, the next generation of wireless technology.

AT&T did not say where the 5G network will initially be deployed in the Atlanta area. At launch, AT&T's system will seem more like a very fast Wi-Fi network than a replacement for cell networks.

The upshot is that although AT&T's initial 5G service won't operate in quite the same way that most wireless customers are used to, it does give AT&T the ability to claim a 5G "first" in a highly competitive wireless market.

Early on, as AT&T awaits handsets that support 5G to emerge, it will initially deploy 5G-based mobile services using a small router-like device that can connect other devices to the 5G network.

In order to streamline its full 5G deployment, AT&T will open a 5G lab in Austin, where it will conduct more tests.
