AT&T’s True 5G Mobile Internet To Arrive By End Of 2018

AT&T announced on Thursday it will roll out the next-generation true 5G mobile internet in a dozen of U.S. cities by late 2018. Mobile carrier AT&T also said that it expects to be the first network in the United States to offer true mobile 5G services before the end of 2018.

The announcement of AT&T’s true 5G mobile internet has done via a press release, saying that the services will become a “reality for consumers and businesses this year in a dozen cities.”

This news is one of the pride for AT&T who is waxing lyrical about the fact that the business was one of the main key drivers behind accelerating the 5G standard during the 2017 calendar year. As part of the announcement, AY&T has detailed its belief that the promise of 5G is “seemingly endless,” and that the company is moving as fast as it actually can to make that promise a “reality” for both consumers and commercial ones who have plans with the carrier:

AT&T expects to be the first U.S. company to introduce mobile 5G service in a dozen markets by late 2018. The promise of mobile 5G is seemingly endless and we’re moving fast to make that promise a reality. To reach this ambitious milestone, we’ve taken a different approach to transforming our network. AT&T 5G services will be based on industry standards for 5G. To make this happen, we were one of the key drivers for standards acceleration last year.

AT&T’s announcement comes after international 5G standards were agreed in December by 3GPP, the body that developers and governs cellular standards. The company also stated that it is committed to the “long-term vision” of 5G technology, is also planning on trailing 5G tech with businesses.

“We’re moving quickly to begin deploying mobile 5G this year and start unlocking the future of connectivity for consumers and businesses,” Melissa Arnoldi, president of AT&T technology and operations, said in a press release on Thursday.

The popular mobile industry in the United States also promising 5G standards would bring faster internet speeds to stream videos and download data on mobile device. But it is also seen as a technology that can underpin driverless cars, allowing vehicles to send large amounts of data from their sensors back and forth.

AT&T did not truly disclose which areas would receive 5G first, but the rolled out technology will also mean much lower latency which refers to how long it takes for that particular network to recognize and respond to the fact that a device has asked for a specific set of data.

Of course, this should have a huge impact on the streaming market, meaning that device owners will get much faster download speeds than ever, and also a reduced delay in that device actually receiving the data that it has requested.

AT&T: first U.S. carrier to bring 5G to customers

As aforementioned, AT&T declined to specify which cities will be part of the initial dozen that receives the technology before the end of the current calendar year. Stay tuned for more and more information to come out.
