AT&T extends 5G network to seven new cities

12 Apr 2019

AT&T Mobility, which launched its 5G network in twelve cities in December 2018 – but only for ‘select businesses and consumers’ with access to a NETGEAR Nighthawk 5G mobile hotspot – has extended connectivity to seven more cities.

New locations served by the telco’s 5G millimetre wave (mmWave) frequencies include parts of Austin, Los Angeles, Nashville, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco and San Jose. In total, the service is now live in selected parts of 19 cities.

Going forward, AT&T plans to offer at least three 5G-capable mobile devices to customers this year. The first of these – the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone – will launch this spring.
