AT&T to roll out mobile 5G network in Dallas, Atlanta and Waco, Texas, by the end of this year

Additional cities and a timeline for a nationwide rollout of the 5G network will be announced in the coming months, the representative confirmed. The company did not specify the neighborhoods where the network will be available. One of those trials was at Magnolia in Waco. AT&T also said it plans to virtualize 75 percent of its network by 2020, after reaching its 2017 goal of 55 percent. It's a chicken and egg problem. Today, they delivered more.

Today's announcement attempted to connect some of the dots, so that we know how AT&T plans to launch mobile 5G well ahead of T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint. At launch, AT&T's system will seem more like a very fast Wi-Fi network than a replacement for cell networks.

AT&T aims to be the first USA wireless carrier to offer 5G widely.

Possible Spoiler For Tonight's WWE Raw & Elimination Chamber PPV
The victor of the thrilling match will challenge the "Beast" at the grandest stage of them all. He rejoined WWE previous year as a French-language commentator for pay-per-view events.

The company said it's keeping an "aggressive schedule" to bring the technology to fruition this year. "The faster you get started, the faster you get to scale".

Just how fast will 5G go?

Other wireless carriers are also racing toward a 5G future.

AT&T's mobile 5G will be standards-based, and at least initally, it'll use millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum.

The wireless giant previously said it would introduce the service to about a dozen USA markets by late 2018, but it didn't specify which cities or a specific timeline.

Telecom operators are expected to invest about $275 billion in infrastructure for 5G, according to research by consulting firm Accenture.

Mueller Charges Lawyer With Lying During Investigation
A total of 19 people have now been charged as part of the investigation, including five U.S. nationals and 13 Russians. In a statement Tuesday, Skadden said van der Zwaan had worked at the firm since 2007 but was terminated in 2017.

While AT&T senior vice president Igal Elbaz wrote in a statement that the company is progressing its 5G network "much sooner than most people thought possible", folks shouldn't hold their breath for a full-scale 5G overhaul from the company this year.
