AT&T's 5G Evolution Expanding to 117 New Markets

Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile are racing to gain a foothold in the market, and phone companies are promising that 5G-enabled phones are on the horizon.

It is an aggressive roll out for sure, though to be clear, 5G Evolution is not the same thing as true 5G.

The company said it has also rolled out LTE-Licensed Assisted Access (LTE-LAA) in parts of three new markets.

NBN is this week trialling 5G with Ericsson in Melbourne in an effort to explore potential upgrade paths of its fixed-wireless service.

Beyonce takes tumble trying to lift sister during Coachella performance
Beyoncé stunned at Coachella last night, again reuniting Destiny's Child and performing Déjà Vu with her rapper husband, Jay Z . The group performed several of Destiny's Child's biggest hits including "Lose My Breath", "Say My Name", and "Soldier".

The good news is that if you weren't near one of those hotspots, not to worry as AT&T has since announced the expansion of 5G Evolution where they bringing it to more than 100 markets. Uh, not exactly. As you might recall, this turned into a bit of a controversy for the nation's second largest carrier. Previously, LTE-LAA was launched in Chicago's Loop, near Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the Financial District in San Francisco and downtown Los Angeles. AT&T claims it can help deliver download speeds of up to 1 gigabit on their network.

Before the end of 2018, the No. 2 carrier in the US hopes to expand 5G Evolution technology to over 500 markets. Samsung Galaxy users are in a better position with support for S8, S9, S8+, S9+, Note8 and S8 Active models. The Verge called the network "a meaningless marketing move created to confuse customers and make AT&T seem like it has a technological leg up on the cutting edge of wireless technology" when it first appeared in 2017.

AT&T said it's using its ongoing 5G trials to gather data on what is working, what's working, what's not and why, whether millimeter-wave (mmWave) spectrum is working for 5G, and how it can hit high speeds.

"We're building a 5G network that will fundamentally change the way the world lives and works", said Melissa Arnoldi, president of Technology & Operations.
