AT&T turns on 5G networks in 22 new cities

05 March 2020

AT&T has turned on its 5G networks in an additional 22 markets across the U.S., bringing the total number of markets to 80 across the country.

The new markets with 5G now available include: Madera County, Mono County and Santa Rosa, California; Denver, Colorado; Albany and Athens, Georgia; Worcester, Massachusetts; Beaverhead County and Lincoln County, Montana; Sussex County, New Jersey; Albany and Binghamton, New York; Cincinnati, Columbus, Hamilton, Ross County and Springfield, Ohio; Lancaster and State College, Pennsylvania; Provo, Utah; Madison County, Virginia; and Raleigh County, West Virginia.

The company also offers access to its 5G+ network, which is AT&T’s millimeter wave (mmWave) service, in locations throughout 35 cities. The mmWave service offers faster speeds but has limited coverage, particularly indoors. AT&T said this type of connection would be appropriate for businesses, universities, hospitals and sports venues.

Additionally, the company will begin accepting pre-orders this week for the Samsung Galaxy S20 line of devices, which is the next generation smartphone that will support 5G.

AT&T has already had a busy 2020, rolling out 5G network support to 13 cities earlier in the year.
