AT&T to Launch 5G in a dozen cities

A 5G network, which is capable of accommodating driver-less cars and other next generation technologies, would boost the speed and reliability of wireless service.

According to a post on AT&T's newsroom, "parts of" Dallas, Atlanta, and Waco, Texas will be among the first cities to be serviced with true 5G speeds.

AT&T said its 5G network should be 10 to 100 times faster than 4G.

AT&T said they will be announcing additional 5G cities for 2018 over the next months. The company will reveal the names of other cities in the coming months.

AT&T aims to be the first US wireless carrier to offer 5G widely. The company added that it will keep an "aggressive schedule" for rolling out its network. AT&T has committed to deploying 5G wireless service in Dallas, Atlanta and Waco.

"You have to jumpstart the ecosystem", Mansfield said. "The faster you get started, the faster you get to scale". The company says that it will begin with devices operating on ultra high-frequency millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum, then expand to additional spectrum bands. AT&T might have found itself in a race with Verizon, which says it plans to roll out 5G home internet also by the end of 2018.

AT&T reiterated that its mobile 5G deployment will be based on emerging 3GPP standards, holding that the offering will integrate with current LTE technologies using the non-standalone configuration outlined in 3GPP release 15. "AT&T is the only USA carrier that's announced plans to deliver this ground-breaking technology to its customers in 2018", the carrier said. In fact, its 5G evolution features have been live on T-Mobile for a few years.
