Should you wait to see if the next generation of Apple and Samsung phones include 5G??
The world of 4G LTE might still be a novelty for some in the United States, but at least one carrier is forging ahead with plans to bring 5G to the party. AT&T has today announced that it will be launching its 5G network in two U.S. cities, Austin and Indianapolis, towards the end of 2017.
The speeds being talked about in the same breath as 5G are mind boggling for fiber connections, let alone something that’s running over a cellular connection. AT&T expects speeds of 400Mbps or better, and depending on the special tricks and technology being used, there is the possibility of speeds touching 1Gbps in “some areas” this year.
