AT&T has announced that it has started the rollout of its 5G C-Band in the US, although it will be a limited rollout at first.
US networks have come under criticism from airlines who have said the 5G could affect their systems, AT&T will launch their new 5G C-Band in just eight cities which will include Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Chicago, Detroit, Jacksonville, Orlando, and South Florida.
Following a 6-week voluntary pause and the implementation of additional precautionary measures to allow the Federal Aviation Administration and aviation industry to complete evaluations, today’s introduction of C-Band spectrum begins turbo-boosting our 5G wireless service with our newest AT&T 5G+ service1. 5G+ is faster and more responsive for the most demanding apps and services, from gaming to streaming to video conferencing.
