AT&T extends fixed wireless 5G trials to Waco, Kalamazoo and South Bend

31 Aug 2017

AT&T has announced that it will be expanding its ongoing fixed wireless 5G trials to business and residential customers in Waco, Texas; Kalamazoo, Michigan; and South Bend, Indiana by the end of the year. The telco will carry out the trials in association with vendors Ericsson, Samsung, Nokia and Intel. AT&T notes that its current customer trials in Austin, Texas (launched in June 2017) have yielded download speeds of up to 1Gbps and latency rates of under ten milliseconds.

Marachel Knight, AT&T’s senior vice president, Wireless Network Architecture and Design, commented: ‘Taking our fixed wireless 5G trials out of the lab and into the real world helps us learn important factors about mmWave and 5G. And in doing so, we’re learning how to better design our network for the future.’
