AT&T Expands 5G Network to 90 New Markets
AT&T today launched 5G in 90 new cities and counties, nearly doubling the company's number of 5G markets. The launches are in sub-6 GHz bands, the same bands used for 4G, and therefore offering coverage similar to 4G. While sub-6 5G offers good coverage, it is not as fast as the mmWave 5G that AT&T offers as "5G+" in limited densely-populated areas. Today's launch includes Chicago, Seattle, Tacoma, New Orleans, Sacramento, Colorado Springs, Tampa, Pensacola, Sarasota, Fort Wayne, South Bend, Billings, Portsmouth, Lubbock, Waco, Wheeling, and Madison.
