AT&T Announces Remaining Cities for Mobile 5G Rollout, Names 3 Technology Suppliers

AT&T's Air Gig technology sends data along power lines- around them not in them- using relatively simple antennas the carrier calls eggs. Here the larger egg is a Air Gig prototype in a demonstration that actually sent data down the line. The smaller

During the same event, AT&T also announced the rollout of mobile 5G in five USA cities: Houston, Jacksonville, Louisville, New Orleans, and San Antonio - in addition to previously announced markets: Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, Raleigh, and Waco. New to AT&T's list for 2018 are Houston, Jacksonville, Louisville, New Orleans and San Antonio. AT&T also plans to announce an expansion next year to parts of Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Nashville, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco and San Jose. Verizon is slowly deploying 5G across 11 cities, and other carriers are as well.

AT&T is promising that it will launch a mobile service in 2018, but hasn't yet unveiled a smartphone, instead launching with a "mobile puck" - a router that distributes the 5G signal to devices via WiFi - on millimeter wave high-band spectrum.

"Future smart factories and retailers, self-driving cars, untethered virtual and augmented realities, and other yet to be discovered experiences will grow up on tomorrow's 5G networks", Fuetsch said in the release. "We're at the dawn of something new that will define the next decade and generation of connectivity", an AT&T official was quoted as saying. The three companies are now in the last phase of testing 5G network equipment from suppliers Samsung, Nokia, and Huawei, and they are expected to announce their choices this month.


AT&T said it has been working to make the world's first wireless 5G data transfer by using millimeter wave spectrum to deploy 5G in pockets of dense areas - where demand on our network is high and extra capacity and coverage is needed most.

"We expect a dramatic speed increase with 5G via mmWave compared to LTE, along with much lower latency rates", AT&T vice president of converged access and device technology Gordon Mansfield said. The test-performed in Waco, Texas and not a lab-utilized a mobile form factor device integrated with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 5G modem and RF subsystem and Ericsson 5G-NR capable radios connected to AT&T's standards compliant core.
