AT&T 2018 5G Deployment

AT&T announced in January, 2018 that it expects its mobile 5G service to be available in a dozen markets by late 2018, Then in April, AT&T cut this back to four markets:

  1. Atlanta, TX
  2. Dallas, TX
  3. Waco, TX
  4. Puerto Rico

We’re laying the 5G network foundation with 5G Evolution and LTE-LAA. In technology terms, that means we’re upgrading cell towers with LTE Advanced features like

  • 256 QAM
  • 4×4 MIMO
  • 3-way carrier aggregation.

These technologies serve as the runway to 5G by boosting the existing LTE network and priming it for the future of connectivity. We can enable faster speeds now, and upgrade to 5G when it’s ready. For example, PC Mag saw peak wireless speed of 537 Mbps in parts of Chicago where we recently launched our latest technology, LTE-LAA,

We’ll continue to build our 5G foundation across the country and along the way we’ll keep sharing updates on 5G trials, new 5G Evolution markets, new LTE-LAA markets, and name more cities where we’ll launch standards-based mobile 5G in 2018.

T-Mobile is also aiming for a 2019 launch followed by nationwide 5G coverage in 2020 after winning an auction for 600 MHz spectrum last summer. T-Mobile Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray says the company is already rolling out 5G-ready 600 MHz equipment, so that when 5G is ready to go, T-Mobile will only have to push out a software upgrade. At Mobile World Congress, Ray announced that T-Mobile is laying down 5G-ready equipment in 30 cities in 2018, starting first in New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas and Las Vegas.
