AT&T 5G network available nationwide, rolls out to consumer and business customers August 7th

AT&T announced this week that its 5G network is now available to more than 205 million consumers in 395 coverage areas nationwide. Starting August 7, customers on AT&T’s Unlimited Starter wireless plan and Unlimited Web-Only and Starter business plans will be able to access 5G at no extra cost, as long as they have a 5G-enabled device. AT&T’s Extra and Elite consumer plans and Performance and Elite business plans already included 5G access, and prepaid plan customers can buy a 5G-enabled device on its Unlimited Plus plan.

“Our strategy of deploying 5G in both sub-6 (5G) and mmWave (5G+) spectrum bands will provide the best mix of speeds, latency and coverage that are needed to enable revolutionary new capabilities to fuel 5G experiences for consumers and businesses,” AT&T vice president of technology operations Chris Sambar said in a statement.
