AT&T to start rollout of mobile 5G in Dallas, Atlanta, Waco

AT&T 5G rollout starts in these three cities

Now, the carrier has named three of those locations; it plans toannounce others "in the coming months".

Expanding on its earlier plan to launch mobile 5G service in a dozen US cities by the end of 2018, AT&T has named Atlanta, Dallas, and Waco as its first three picks for 5G internet access.

"Our mobile 5G deployments this year will be based on 3GPP standards". It will also add more 5G capable mobile devices and smartphones to its lineup from early 2019.

The Dallas-based telecom giant said Dallas, Atlanta and Waco will be among the dozen markets where it will roll out mobile 5G by the end of 2018.

Dallas will be one of the first cities where customers will be able to experience 5G, a faster and more reliable next-generation wireless network, AT&T announced late Tuesday.

In preparation of launching its 5G mobile network in 2018, AT&T Inc. announced February 21 it will open a 5G lab in North Austin this spring, a representative confirmed.

AT&T will deploy 5G service in high-frequency millimeter wave spectrum bands for these initial mobile launches, but the company said it will deploy the technology in additional spectrum bands in the future.

AT&T said its 5G network should be 10 to 100 times faster than 4G.

AT&T did not say where the 5G network will initially be deployed in the Atlanta area.

AT&T reports it is "the only US carrier that's announced plans to deliver this ground-breaking technology to its customers in 2018". ANTS will let the carrier test unique and forward-looking features on a simulated 5G network for eventual standardisation and use on a commercial network. But ultimately the mobile 5G market is likely to be considerably more important than the fixed 5G market.
