AT&T Would Deploy 5G Network Across 12 Cities In The US – Canadians Have To Wait Until 2020

The US carrier AT&T has just announced the imminent deployment of the 5G network in the country. It is ahead of other big companies such as Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon, becoming the first to do so. At the moment, 5G will reach 12 cities in the United States starting next Friday, December 21st. With this news, AT&T fulfills its promise to launch 5G service before the end of 2018.

In any case, the fact that even mobile phones do not yet have native support for 5G has forced the operator to take other measures. As it has pointed out, it will work with Netgear’s Nighthawk 5G mobile access point, a portable device that creates its own 5G Wi-Fi network, so that it will be possible to link terminals, tablets or laptops to the 5G network to enjoy a faster connection.

Those consumers and companies that want to get closer to the 5G experience will have to pay for the access point in advance about $500, and then nearly $60 per month for a 15 GB plan. Before that, however, users would be able to test the 5G network free of charge for 90 days.

The 5G WiFi network would help users to navigate up to 100 times faster than current wireless systems. It will be possible to download a movie on a smartphone in less than three seconds. In addition to that, other significant advantages of 5G would be that you can have faster communications and with less battery consumption.

Apparently, all major US operators are planning to support 5G network in specific cities starting next year. Despite this, AT&T is the first to implement 5G in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Louisville, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Raleigh, Texas, and San Antonio, reportedly.

And, in case you want to know when 5G would become available in Canada, we know, according to some earlier reports, that 5G network won’t come out in Canada until 2020.
