AT&T's 5G Network May Launch "Within the Next Few Weeks"

As the year comes to a close, many are already looking forward to the launch of the much-anticipated 5G network.

Although there have been some announcements made for the developments of 5G, it is not yet fully available across the country. This is why 2019 seems to be the year when the technology will be launched.

One of the companies that are preparing for a 5G rollout is AT&T. In its conference call today, the carrier announced that its mobile 5G network will be going live in 12 promised cities.

But contrary to the other networks, AT&T is optimistic that its 5G network will be live "within the next few weeks." Some reports are showing that AT&T is referring to a 5G launch in November or by the end of the year.

The initial cities where AT&T's 5G network will be rolling out to include the following:

  • Atlanta
  • Dallas
  • Houston
  • Oklahoma City
  • New Orleans

Although AT&T promised to rollout its 5G network in 12 cities, the 7 cities will actually have access to the network by early 2019. These cities include Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Orlando, and San Francisco.

If you're already gearing up for 5G's availability, it may be best to not expect too much from it in the beginning. It's likely the network will have limited coverage when it launches. At the same time, the first 5G-capable devices may function like data-only devices. The best advice is to wait until 5G technology becomes more available in 2019 to enjoy its full capabilities.

  1. What devices run on 5G?

    1. It's just a "puck." So you have to carry a separate phone, tablet or computer and use WiFi to access '5G.'
      This is a marketing tosser - they're doing technical and feasibility testing. You get to pay to help them.

  2. Any word yet, on when AT&T will be shutting down 3G?
