AT&T names first three cities to get its ultra-fast 5G network

AT&T explained "The lab will be where our engineers can build and test creative solutions and run "stress tests" simulating real-world customer experiences with mobile 5G network equipment and devices from multiple vendors before they are rolled out to customers".

As we previously reported, AT&T's initial mobile 5G service will be based on mobile hotspots, or "pucks", as 5G-capable smartphones will not be available in time for the launches.

"ANTS will let us test unique and forward-looking features on a simulated 5G network for eventual standardization and use on our commercial network", company officials said. Now, the telecoms giant has confirmed that three of those cities will be Dallas, Atlanta, and Waco, Texas. The company announced in January that it would roll out the wireless network to a dozen markets and start selling a mobile device for the next-generation network by the end of 2018.

Over that span, he's seen time at six different positions while averaging 17 home runs and 40 doubles per 162 games played. Chris Owings or Ketel Marte could shift to second from shortstop, where Nick Ahmed also is back from injury.

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

The 5G technology is definitely closer than we think. Additional cities targeted for mobile 5G in 2018 will be announced "in the coming months", officials said. It's not the clearest thing ever, because they mention 5G Evolution (which is not 5G), as well as LTE-LAA, which is now a piece of everyone's LTE network. While it is unclear which other cites will be selected for the rollout, both Kalamazoo and South Bend are safe bets, as is Austin, considering the company just announced it will open a 5G testing lab in that city.

When 5G is deployed in millimeter wave bands, it can support high speed service but over relatively short distances, therefore requiring denser cellsite infrastructure, so it is not surprising that AT&T will want to use a mixture of millimeter wave and other bands to support service. 5G wireless is said to offer theoretical peak speeds of several gigabits a second at lower latency than existing 4G wireless networks.
