“Last December we officially introduced the nation’s first commercial mobile 5G service,” said Andre Fuetsch, president AT&T Labs and chief technology officer.
“We spent the early part of this year accelerating and advancing our 5G network with early adopters by our side.
“And now it’s time to offer this experience to more businesses and consumers in another 7 cities.”
In 2019, AT&T says it plans to offer at least three 5G mobile devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G which is due to arrive this spring.
Last December, the telecom became the first company to offer both a live mobile 5G network and a commercially available 5G device.
