AT&T to Launch Mobile 5G in 2018
AT&T is planning to launch the 5G Mobile networks in the United States in mid 2018. As per the official information, AT&T will be the first telecom network to provide the 5G services in the states. Considering the tremendous growth in the tech industry, 5G networks will rule this year. Now, AT&T is kickstarting the journey to a 5G era.
The amount of data necessitated by the Internet of Things will push data to the edge, it will also force mobile providers to move faster than ever — toward 5G. The level of hyper-connectivity expected by users today leaves little to no room to remain stagnant on the technological advancement, but don’t get too excited. Don’t expect to be using 5G technology anytime soon as the technology is believed to be polished in 2018. This year we are seeing Gigabit LTE (the stepping stone between current LTE and 5G) making leaps with devices from Samsung and Sony leading the way. Today much of the Gigabit LTE movement is being powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon technology, but others will certainly seek to become involved in this rapid growth market for mobile.
“In addition to plans for offering mobile 5G to consumers this year, we expect to trial 5G technology with businesses of all sizes across industries to help them to transform business operations and create more engaging experiences for their customers.” – Quoted AT&T in official release.
