The country’s second-largest wireless operator AT&T has launched its low-band 5G network in six new cities. The growing network will now be available in New York City, Las Vegas, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Baltimore. The 5G network is built on its low-band 850MHz spectrum technology.
With the addition of six new cities, the company’s 5G is now present at 19 cities in total. The cities where the 5G network is available now include Birmingham, Buffalo, Detroit, Baltimore, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Louisville, New York City, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Providence, Rochester, San Francisco, San Jose, Indianapolis, Bridgeport, and Washington DC.
AT&T though offers just a single 5G phone - the Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G. The 5G network is available at no extra charge if you subscribe to AT&T’s Unlimited Extra or Unlimited Elite plans which cost $75 or $85 per month for one line.
In addition to this rollout, the telecom company has also launched its mmWave 5G+ network in select areas of Baltimore and Detroit.
The roll out to new cities is setting a great precedent for what is to follow in 2020. The availability of the 5G is on an uptick.
