AT&T and other carriers now do not offer 5G-capable mobile phones, according to CNN.

AT&T says it will add more spectrum bands to its 5G network over time, and it will be fully compliant with 3GPP standards.

AT&T revelead the first three of a dozen cities that will receive its mobile 5G network. 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. I guess we will be able to live stream 4K 360 degree content from our smartphones!

While today's news is an exciting and concrete step forward for 5G in the United States, it's worth underscoring that AT&T's language hedges a little, saying that its mobile 5G service will be available in "parts of Dallas, Atlanta and Waco" rather than blanketing each city immediately.

Trump in Twitter spat with woman who accused him of sexual harassment
Trump said right out that it never happened and denied knowing the woman or ever meeting her. "Grab them by the p--y", Trump said. Trump famously suggested he touched women without their consent in a 2005 tape that surfaced ahead of the 2016 election.

AT&T kicked off its biggest 5G trial network in Waco, using mmWave spectrum and 5G radio and antenna prototypes in December. "AT&T is the only US carrier that's announced plans to deliver this ground-breaking technology to its customers in 2018", the carrier said.

To help with its deployment of 5G, AT&T is also opening a lab in Austin, Texas. AT&T also said it plans to virtualize 75 percent of its network by 2020, after reaching its 2017 goal of 55 percent.

AT&T launched 5G Evolution last year and plans to offer the faster services broadly by the end of the year.

"This is standards-based, mobile 5G we're talking about". But ultimately the mobile 5G market is likely to be considerably more important than the fixed 5G market. The Cupertino company lagged years behind its competition in adopting 3G and 4G LTE so it could unfortunately be even longer until we see an iPhone that's compatible with AT&T's network.
