AT&T’s 5G plans might be sold in tiers based on speed

Don’t let Verizon and AT&T’s bad 5G demos temper your 5G excitement

5G demos aren’t compelling yet, despite the serious promise the technology has.

5G is coming. We’ve heard that phrase for years now; but it’s no longer a concept, it’s reality. Carriers around the world are committing to consumer-ready 5G network launches in 2019 (in some cases, early 2019), with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855-powered smartphones that you can actually go buy and use on the network. But that’s still months away, and that makes a difference — because demos  [Read More…]

These are three of the cities where AT&T’s 5G network will launch in 2018

Everything’s faster in Texas.

In early January, AT&T announced plans for launching a legit 5G network in twelve different markets by the end of 2018. The carrier remained tight-lipped at the time about which markets would be graced with this early access, but now we have the names of three of those twelve.

As more carriers have brought back unlimited plans and zero rating for certain services, the ability to use a tablet as  [Read More…]

At the time, no one paid the announcement much attention because it was filtered in with a larger, seemingly more-important pronouncement: that AT&T was moving towards real 5G trials, also in  [Read More…]
