AT&T announces more 5G markets, still won't sell you a 5G device

AT&T announces more 5G markets, still won't sell you a 5G device”

AT&T announced on Tuesday that it activated its 5G mobile network in seven more cities, making for a total of 19 cities in the U.S. where AT&T's mobile 5G network is available.

AT&T, the second-largest US wireless carrier, kicked off its mobile 5G launch in December 2018 by adding NETGEAR Nighthawk 5G mobile hotspot to business and consumers.

It's now turned on that service in parts of Austin, Texas; Los Angeles, Nashville, Tenn.; Orlando, Fla; and San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose, Calif.

To that end, AT&T is planning to have "at least" three 5G mobile devices out this year. AT&T said it is the only mobile carrier to offer mobile 5G service to businesses and consumers, well ahead of its competitors such as Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.

5G mobile networks will complement the current 4G LTE networks mobile device users have been using to connect to the internet. Sadly, the only device with support right now is the Netgear 5G hotspot.

AT&T has the fastest network in the USA, according to Ookla.

"This is the first taste of the mobile 5G era", Fuetsch said previous year.

Verizon, on the other hand, has the Motorola Moto Z3 smartphone that can connect to its 5G network with an accessory that attaches to the phone, and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.

AT&T says it spent most of early 2019 laying the groundwork for its own 5G platform, collaborating with early adopters along the way.

AT&T was, by some measures, the first carrier to roll out 5G wireless services in late 2018.

The only device that can access the AT&T network int he aforementioned places is the Netgear Nighthawk 5G, but this hotspot is not available in stores.
