United States AT$T Communications Rolls Out 5+ Network Coverage



AT&T Inc an American multinational amalgam holding company which has its headquarters at Whitacre Tower in Downtown Dallas, Texas United States has, today turned on its 5G+ in New York City, but it still isn’t making its speedy new network available to regular consumers.

 AT$T is the world’s largest telecommunications company, the largest provider of mobile telephone services, and the largest provider of fixed telephone services in the United States through AT&T Communications.

AT&T’s new millimeter-wave network, or what they are calling  AT&T 5G+, will be available in parts of New York City, though parts may be a bit of a stretch. In its release, AT&T acknowledged that the service will be in limited areas initially the company’s spokesperson told international media that the new service will be available first in parts near and around East Village, Greenwich Village, and Gramercy Park in the US.

AT&T has multiple versions of 5G, with 5G+ denoting its super-fast but limited range millimeter-wave flavor. AT$T states that the “sub-6” spectrum  covers wider areas but at slower speeds which it will simply call “5G.” Both of those forms of actual 5G are different than 5GE, the rebranding of AT&T’s improved but existing 4G network that is currently available across the country.

“As a densely-populated, global business and entertainment hub, New York City stands to benefit greatly from having access to 5G, and we’ve been eager to introduce the service here,” said Amy Kramer, president of AT&T’s New York region.

“While our initial availability in NYC is a limited introduction at launch, we’re committed to working closely with the City to extend coverage to more neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs,” Kramer added.

Even though AT$T has rolled out a limited range, New York City becomes the twenty-first city where AT&T has deployed 5G. This has extended the company’s early lead in the 5G race over Verizon which has nine cities, T-Mobile has six and Sprint controls five cities.

It still remains unclear to AT&T users rather everyone else will start accessing 5G. But reliable sources state that the company plans to deploy a nationwide, United states, 5G network on its wider-ranging “sub-6” spectrum in the “first half of 2020.”
