AT&T plans to be the first to mobile 5G in the United States. To power our new network this year and beyond, we’re building our towers and small cells in a radically new way.
5G will transform the way you work, play, and enjoy entertainment, and we expect to be the first U.S. company to introduce mobile 5G service in a dozen markets by late 2018.
We expect 5G will offer businesses so much more than just faster speeds. 5G will unlock experiences of the future like Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. Not only will 5G modernize businesses, it will disrupt entire industries.
The 5th Generation of mobile networks — 5G — will be a software-defined, data-powered network with blazing fast internet speeds. 5G technology will help us connect more devices faster, enable lower latency uses, increase battery life, and handle more data — like surging video growth on mobile networks.
AT&T is in a unique position to support next-generation applications quickly and efficiently thanks to our Software-Defined Network, Big Data and Open Source network approach, combined with our broadband build-out commitment to millions of locations throughout the United States.
