AT&T's Mobile 5G Service is Launching Real Soon

By the looks of it, AT&T just might be the first major carrier in the U.S. to launch 5G.

Earlier today, AT&T revealed that it will be rolling out its mobile 5G service in select cities. The wireless carrier has branded this service as AT&T 5G+ and will be available in parts of 12 cities.

With a target date for officially activating AT&T 5G+ on December 21st, AT&T will be the "first and only company in the U.S. to offer a mobile 5G device over a commercial, standards-based mobile 5G network."

When it launches, the service will be available in parts of these cities:

  • Atlanta
  • Charlotte
  • Dallas
  • Houston
  • Indianapolis
  • Jacksonville
  • Louisville
  • Oklahoma City
  • New Orleans
  • Raleigh
  • San Antonio
  • Waco

In the first half of 2019, AT&T plans to expand this service to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Nashville, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose.

One device that will be compatible with AT&T 5G+ is the Netgear Nighthawk 5G Mobile hotspot, which will also be on sale on the same date. At the time of its launch, select users will be able to enjoy free mobile 5G service with the device at no cost for three months. After that, the device will be available for $499 in the spring.

As for its pricing for the 5G service, AT&T shares that the data-only 5G service will begin at $70 per month for 15GB. 

AT&T predicts that there will be at least one 5G-capable phone to be available in the market by the first half of the year. Another phone could also follow before 2019 ends.

  1. Nothing about Cricket selling the iPhone 7, for $150 if you are porting in?

  2. I am not a proponent for 5G wireless technology. This is sure to be a technology that will cost more. I am sticking to my good old-fashion Virgin Mobile Wireless service.
