AT & T has received a lot (well deserved) flak for its fake 5G Evolution network, so the company's real, true 5G network deployment has received less attention. But this rollout is still going on, and today the carrier announced the next two cities: Chicago and Minneapolis, both of which were to receive AT & T's real 5G network later in 2019 via Engadget .
The news is roughly equivalent to AT & T's previous 5G ambitions: The company had its network in twelve cities late last year (Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Louisville, Oklahoma City, New Orleans ) are technically founded (Raleigh, San Antonio and Waco), but there is still no hardware that ordinary customers can buy and use with the next-gen network. AT & T promises phones later this year ̵
Chicago and Minneapolis join Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Nashville, Orlando, San Diego, San Francisco and San Jose on the list of cities where AT & T has announced plans to add service in 2019. Even if the actual offers are a bit slim at the moment it is clear that AT & T is ambitious with 5G. Soon we will see if it can actually deliver.
