Back in December 2017, 3GPP, the organization that looks after the cellular standards, revealed the specifications for the 5G network. The U.S-based carriers including AT&T & Verizon have mentioned offering the 5G services to their consumers by 2019. Now, AT&T has announced to launch the 5G services by the end of this year starting with 12 U.S cities. The company hasn’t mentioned the specific locations, but its good to see the faster implementation of the 5G network.
With the superfast speeds on 5G network, we can see the buffer-free 4K and 360-degree videos. The lower latency on the 5G network is also said to enhance the end user experience. According to the company, 5G will change the way we live, work and enjoy entertainment. As of now, there is not much information available the plans or the devices supported. We might get to know once we are close to the public launch of the 5G services.
With the faster speeds and ultra-low latency, 5G will surely enhance the experiences like virtual reality, driverless cars, immersive 4K video and more. On the other hand, Verizon and Samsung have partnered to offer the 5G services in Sacramento, California, and couple of other cities in the second half of this year. Currently, the 5G trails are going on in California, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Texas, and Washington D.C.
In 2017, the company started offering the 5G Evolution that offers high-speed only with the 5G Evolution capable devices. However, the upcoming 5G services from AT&T will be based on 3GPP’s 5G specs and will offer true 5G speeds. Apart from the consumer-centric 5G network, AT&T is also planning to start offering the trial 5G technology to businesses. Talking about the other U.S carriers, Sprint and T-Mobile will kick-off their 5G services only in 2019.
Coming to the device compatibility, the latest high-end smartphone chips sport the Gigabit LTE modems. We will be seeing the broader implementation of 5G capable modems in the coming months. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
