US telecoms leviathan AT&T has announced the next three cities in its planned 2018 rollout of 5G.
“No company in the world is better at building networks than AT&T. It’s why we’re building America’s first mobile 5G network as well as FirstNet, the country’s nationwide public safety broadband platform dedicated to first responders,” said Melissa Arnoldi, president, AT&T Technology & Operations.
“We’re on track to launch the first mobile 5G services and deliver the first device to customers this year. 5G will be more than just a better network. Especially after our trial learnings with large enterprises, small-and-medium sized businesses and residential locations the past two years, we believe 5G will ultimately create a world of new economic opportunity, greater mobility, and smarter connectivity for individuals, businesses and society as a whole,” she added.
The cities that have been selected by AT&T have a decidedly southern feel and the company says that it has deliberately targeted a mix of small and mid sized cities for the forst phase of its 5G rollout.
