AT&T has announced that it has activated 5G technology in Mexico. The cellco says it will expand its 5G coverage on a gradual basis, starting with industrial and urban areas, while continuing to operate its 3G and 4G networks. Nicole Rodriguez, Vice President and CTO at AT&T Mexico, commented: ‘In the next three years we will deploy 5G in the main markets of the country, starting with the most important cities.’ 5G access is initially available via the Honor 50 smartphone; AT&T notes that the first 50 handsets were connected to its network on 8 December.

While the official press release is lacking in specifics, local press reports have indicated that AT&T is using spectrum in the 2.5GHz band to deliver coverage to the Cuauhtemoc and the Napoles districts of Mexico City.
