AT&T Announces Dallas, Atlanta, Waco as the First Cities to Get 5G

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

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

Ultimately, we expect to reach theoretical peak speeds of multiple gigabits per second on devices through mobile 5G.

AT&T said Dallas, Waco and Atlanta will be among a dozen cities where the carrier will deploy 5G-based mobile services by the end of 2018.

"Our mobile 5G firsts will put our customers in the middle of it all", Elbaz said. Stay tuned and we'll update you on the other lucky cities that'll be part of AT&T's mobile 5G rollout.

"This lab is also equipped with an outdoor 5G testbed to trial a variety of 5G applications and real-world use cases".

The 5G technology is definitely closer than we think.

The telecom giant said parts of Atlanta, Dallas and Waco, Texas, would see the service by the end of the year.

The race to 5G is competitive, as rival Verizon also plans on rolling out 5G networks in the near future as well.

Initial mobile 5G deployments this year will be based on 3GPP standards and operate over mmWave spectrum. Eventually the technology will be deployed on additional spectrum bands. The network is meant to "seamlessly integrate" with current LTE technologies, though it is unclear which specific devices will first receive the 5G treatment, as reported by Engadget.
