5G is the future of wireless technology and is poised to jumpstart the next wave of unforeseen mobile innovation. As the first to introduce the U.S. to mobile 5G, we’ve seen its power and are excited to continue to unlock new experiences for more customers.

This week, we’re introducing our 5G network to 20 more markets. With this latest news, we now provide access to 5G1 on our best unlimited wireless plans for consumers and businesses in a total of 100 markets across the U.S. And 5G+ is now available in parts of 35 cities for customers with compatible plans and devices.

Two flavors of next generation 5G technology

We’re building our more widely available 5G network on the Nation’s Best Wireless Network using low-band spectrum.  This service now covers more than 80 million people. This service offers impressive speeds over broader distances than 5G+ and is ideal for mobile customers who need performance while on the go.

We offer an enhanced wireless experience on 5G+ with our millimeter wave service though with more limited coverage. Results continue to be impressive – we have seen a peak download speed of over 2 Gbps — where customers at select businesses, universities, hospitals and sports venues are beginning to see the early benefits.

Check back often to stay updated on where we’re introducing 5G next. For more information on AT&T 5G availability, check out
