AT&T Communications has revealed that its 5G network now covers 250 million people, with the telco hitting its end-of-year coverage target six months early. The low band 5G network utilises former 3G spectrum in the 850MHz band. AT&T’s ‘5G+’ (i.e. millimetre wave [mmWave]) footprint remains unchanged, with connectivity offered in selected parts of 38 cities. Going forward, the telco expects to cover 70-75 million people with its planned 3.7GHz 5G network by end-2022, rising to 200 million by end-2023.
