AT&T continues to swiftly expand the availability of its low-band 5G network across the United States. The carrier today announced that customers in 137 new markets can now access low-band 5G on compatible devices.

As usual, there needs to be an explanation of what exactly this means because AT&T has complicated the 5G rollout beyond belief. Today’s expansion is of AT&T’s low-band 850MHz spectrum networking technology. It’s not mmWave 5G, which is ultra high-band frequencies, but it is a step up from the so-called 5G E network that AT&T has been pushing in many areas.

mmWave 5G offers ultra-fast speeds in dense urban areas, while sub-6 GHz 5G is slower in terms of performance, but with far better signal. AT&T’s 5G network offers an average speed of 133Mbps, according to Ookla Speedtest Intelligence cited by PCMag, but this includes some results from the mmWave network as well.

With today’s expansion to 137 new markets, AT&T’s low-band 5G network is now available in a total of 327 markets in the U.S. AT&T’s mmWave 5G+ network is available in “parts of 35 cities.”

AT&T’s 5G network is now live for consumers in 137 additional markets across the country and now covers more than 160 million people. With today’s launch, AT&T now offers access to 5G on its best unlimited wireless plans for consumers and businesses in a total of 327 markets in the U.S.

Apple is expected to bring support for 5G, including this 850MHz spectrum, to the iPhone lineup later this fall with the launch of the iPhone 12 series. The next iPad Pro revision is also expected to bring support for both versions of 5G as well.
