AT&T has announced that its 5G service is now available to subscribers in 90 new markets across the US – including Chicago, New Orleans, Sacramento, Seattle and Tampa.

This news comes just days after the testing company, RootMetrics, which collects independent data on mobile network operators around the world, revealed that the carrier is now delivering speeds of 50 Mbps or faster in 20 more markets this year, compared to  2019. 

AT&T registered speeds under 20 Mbps in only two out of 55 US cities covered by RootMetrics in the first quarter of 2020, a total matched only by Verizon 5G (whilst Sprint registered speeds below 20 Mbps in 12 markets in 2020, with T-Mobile doing so in 27 of 55 cities tested).

"We found excellent and improved download speeds on the carrier’s 4G LTE network in the 55 markets we completed testing before we paused our scouting efforts,"  said Suzanth Subramaniyan, Director of Mobile Networks, RootMetrics. "And AT&T’s low-band 5G is also providing generally fast speeds – though not as fast as Verizon’s mmWave 5G)."

Now in 90 new markets

“We remain focused on launching AT&T 5G in more markets and to more customers across the country and plan to reach nationwide coverage this summer.”
