AT&T To Bring 5G Evolution To Over 20 Metros This Year

AT&T is currently rolling out its fake 5G network in Indianapolis, as its new deceivingly named “5G Evolution” service to its subscribers in the area. Here are the details.

This week, AT&T announced that it’s rolling out 5G Evolution – a 4G LTE service that has nothing to do with the 5G technology. And it isn’t a representation of the next step forward in the said area, but it absolutely does matter than AT&T customers in Indainapolis should start seeing almost immediate increases in data speeds received on their devices, as long as that device offers support for this technology.

Originally, the service was introduced back in April 2017, promising “carrier aggregation, 4×4 MIMO, 256 QAM, and more.” In other words, it’s exactly something that other carriers have been doing for some time, under it’s real name, which is 4G LTE-A.

AT&T’s 5G Evolution technology and service already been announced, so it’s most definitely something that subscribers have been expecting and waiting for. Rather than actually being an astronomical leap forward with the first 5G rollout. Granted, 4G LTE-A doesn’t even sound as wonderful as 5G Evolution, but it’s definitely not as marketable, nevertheless it’s a lot more realistic as an outline of what’s being offered here.

It means that those in a compatible area, who subscribe to AT&T’s services, and who operate a compatible device, should start seeing those beautiful increased data speeds.

According to AT&T carrier itself mentioned Samsung‘s Galaxy S8 and S8+ both are compatible devices in its announcement, but anyone with a smartphone or tablet that has a modern chispet should also be able to benefit with 5G Evolution now.

In a post AT&T says that it plans to bring 5G Evolution to more than 20 metro areas before the end of the year, which include the previously announced Atlanta, Boston, Chcago, Los Angles, Nashville, and San Fransisco. The firm also says that it will have more to share regarding future areas when it gets closer to launch.

As confirmed receivers of the 5G Evolution technology are already listed, though this definitely isn’t true 5G. The final specs of that technology were only announced earlier this year – so we are a long way off seeing that actually happen anytime soon, but this is a step forward for AT&T subscribers who will definitely benefit from the network improvement.

Again, as far as the 5G goes, once it’s available, it will be focused on allowing for more bandwidth in a congested area. Stay tuned for more details!
