AT&T: Mobile 5G coming this year to Atlanta, Dallas, Waco, nine more

I guess we will be able to live stream 4K 360 degree content from our smartphones! The lab is also equipped with an outdoor 5G testbed to trial a variety of 5G applications and real-world use cases, including the Advanced 5G NR Testbed System (ANTS), proprietary to AT&T. However, the company expects 5G-ready devices to hit the market this year and in early 2019, so it may be worth waiting a few extra months to upgrade your device if you want to take advantage of this new wireless technology.

The launch to mobile customers ultimately will be in a dozen cities and the company has identified Dallas, Atlanta and Waco, Texas as among them.

The company says that the commercial rollout follows multi-city trials ... That trailblazing move makes the company the only US carrier to roll out plans for the high-speed technology in 2018, according to its announcement. It's not the clearest thing ever, because they mention 5G Evolution (which is not 5G), as well as LTE-LAA, which is now a piece of everyone's LTE network.

United Nations chief 'deeply alarmed' by Eastern Ghouta violence
The agency is angry at the fierce bombing by government forces that has resulted in hundreds of casualties, including children. At least one faction in East Ghouta has links to al Qaeda, but its presence is believed to be small.

The term '5G' is a somewhat ill-defined one at present, with different carriers using the term to refer to different speeds, but AT&T is keen to stress that its own service will be based on 3GPP standards.

As part of further testing, AT&T is also opening a lab in Austin to conduct tests and prepare mobile 5G network equipment for deployment. Millimeter-wave spectrum will be the magic that will make 5G networks so much faster than existing LTE networks, but it will have to be paired with lower-band spectrum (like that used by existing cell networks) to make a truly nationwide 5G network. Like other carriers on the road to 5G, AT&T says that it is now deploying new LTE-compatible equipment that can easily be migrated to 5G as soon as faster service is needed.
