AT&T announced today that its 5G network is now available nationwide following a slow rollout that began testing in major U.S. cities in 2017. In particular, 40 new markets are being added today to support 5G and make it available to more than 205 million customers in 395 markets in the United States.
If you work at AT&T and have a 5G-capable smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S20 or the Galaxy Note 10, you can take advantage of the improved speeds and faster downloads of 5G. With nationwide coverage, AT&T found that its customers can enjoy 5G speeds both at home and on the go, although there are of course still some limits in rural areas.
Starting August 7, 5G access to AT & T Unlimited Starter’s four-line wireless plan will be added at a cost of $ 35 / month. It is already available for the Extra and Elite plans, and AT&T indicated that these plans will not incur any additional costs due to the addition of 5G.
For business customers, the AT&T Business Unlimited Web-Only and Starter Plan is extended by 5G access. This update will also be released on August 7th.
Check the AT&T website to see if you can access 5G in your area. Apple does not currently offer an iPhone or iPad that supports 5G, but the so-called iPhone 12 is expected to get 5G connectivity later this year.
