AT&T set to run 5G trials

AT&T's new networks standards will be compliant to what is issued by the 3GPP. According to their definition, wireless carriers must use the 600 Hz and 700 Hz low-frequency spectrum, the 3.5 GHz mid-frequency spectrum, and 50 GHz high-frequency.

Melissa Arnoldi, AT&T's president for Technology and Operations, says the emerging technology opens up all sorts of opportunities for both businesses and consumers. Now that all the key elements are in place, then they are confident they will be able to provide 5G connection to the market in a few months, as well as improving the other connections that they already have, including LTE, 5G Evolution, Fixed Wireless Internet, etc.

"With faster speeds and ultra-low latency, 5G will ultimately deliver and enhance experiences like virtual reality, future driverless cars, immersive 4K video, and more", she said. "We're moving quickly to begin deploying mobile 5G this year and start unlocking the future of connectivity for consumers and businesses".

Adopting 3GPP specifications differ from current trials using 5G technology that beam signals between stationary antennas.


It's been quite the week for 5G launches. In fact, technology experts have confirmed that it is actually LTE Advanced, which is likewise being offered by other networks.

The company is, however, keeping tight-lipped about the new trials - it's announced no further details about its 5G plans.

Aside from eventually launching mobile 5G to consumers, AT&T promised they're also working on fixing the other areas, from wired, wireless, mobile, or fixed.

Those markets include Atlanta; Austin; Boston; Bridgeport, Connecticut; Buffalo, New York; Chicago; Fresno, California; Greenville, South Carolina; Hartford, Connecticut; Houston; Indianapolis; Los Angeles; Louisville; Memphis; Nashville; New Orleans; Oklahoma City; Pittsburgh; San Antonio; San Diego; San Francisco; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Sacramento, California. Now both companies are testing the new service. We might get to know once we are close to the public launch of the 5G services.
