  • AT&T to roll out mobile 5G network in Dallas, Atlanta and Waco, Texas, by the end of this year

AT&T and other carriers now do not offer 5G-capable mobile phones, according to CNN.

AT&T also announced it's opening a new lab in Austin this spring to test 5G mobile deployments by simulating how the network will be used by customers.

While AT&T senior vice president Igal Elbaz wrote in a statement that the company is progressing its 5G network "much sooner than most people thought possible", folks shouldn't hold their breath for a full-scale 5G overhaul from the company this year. I guess we will be able to live stream 4K 360 degree content from our smartphones!

USA ends 42-year Olympic cross-country medal drought with incredible photo finish
The Norwegian athlete is the most decorated Winter Olympian (14 medals). "It's time to start dropping people", Diggins said. Bill Koch, who won a silver medal at the 1976 Innsbruck Games, is the only other American to medal in the event.

AT&T says its mobile 5G service will launch first in parts of Dallas and Waco in Texas and in Atlanta, Georgia alongside additional cities to be announced in the coming months.

When 5G is deployed in millimeter wave bands, it can support high speed service but over relatively short distances, therefore requiring denser cellsite infrastructure, so it is not surprising that AT&T will want to use a mixture of millimeter wave and other bands to support service. The experts say the next generation 5G network technology is about 10 times faster than 4G.

AT&T will open a 5G testing lab in Austin, Texas to conduct runs on the network to optimize it for consumers. However, the network operator did not offer any details on where exactly its mobile 5G services will be available first and when.

Under his plea deal, Flynn is obligated to tell Mueller's investigators everything he knows about these meetings. Neither Kushner nor his company has received requests for interviews, people familiar with the matter told CNN .

Again, AT&T said back in January that they would have 5G in up to a dozen markets before the end of the year. AT&T claims that the equipment being rolled out to its LTE network will enable a migration to 5G. But he said many of 5G's most compelling uses, such as autonomous cars, are still years in the future.

For Apple mobile devices owners, this is certainly great news.

AT&T will launch its first mobile device for 5G - a mobile, battery-powered Wi-Fi hotspot - in late 2018, Mansfield said.
