AT&T to deploy 5G evolution networks in two cities

Yordan, 02 February 2017

AT&T announced it will start rolling out 5G networks in Austin and Indianapolis, the company announced at an event in San Francisco. The carrier is calling the network “5G Evolution” and says speeds will top 400 Mbps, which is way less than the 1Gbps that real 5G should deliver, but is still faster than regular LTE.

The company also says that 5G connectivity is going to reach 1Gbps in theoretical top speeds, which will put mobile connection on par with fiber internet. It calls its network Indigo because the idea is to use software advancements to make existing hardware more capable and costs of upgrades lower.
