With the 5G wars currently heating up in the U.S. mobile industry, carriers are vying to get the blazing fast data network to as many cities as possible. Given that the technology kicked off this year, not all of the U.S. is covered with 5G. However, AT&T is on its course to a big expansion as it recently announced launching its 5G services in the 20th city of the country, Las Vegas, Nevada.
To be clear, AT&T specifies that coverage is available in “parts of Las Vegas”, so it should be no surprise if 5G is sparsely available in some parts of the popular area. Speeds will also depend on the number of users accessing the networks and given that 5G is still not supported by many devices, there shouldn’t be too much traffic as of now.
Las Vegas joins AT&T’s 5G covered cities like Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Louisville, Nashville, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Raleigh, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, and Waco.
The caveat for AT&T’s users here is that the sole compatible device as of now, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, is only available to AT&T’s “business” customers. This leaves out several non-business customers who may want to enjoy 5G networks on AT&T. Fortunately, networks like T-Mobile and Sprint don’t have such restrictions in place.
Have you tested out 5G speeds on AT&T’s networks yet?
