What’s the news? AT&T just launched its 5G+ with mmWave in some of the most iconic areas of Boston. As America’s Most Reliable 5G Network1, we want customers to be able to enjoy the lightning-fast speeds at the Boston Common, Old State House, TD Garden and other legendary locations, quickly, easily and reliably.
In addition to Boston residents and visitors, first responders on FirstNet®, Built with AT&T – America’s public safety network – will also have access to 5G+ in the area. They will maintain voice communication through always-on priority and preemption on public safety’s Band 14 and AT&T commercial LTE spectrum, and the intuitive FirstNet network will determine the best route for data traffic, whether that’s 5G+ (mmWave) or LTE.
Why is this important? By delivering 5G+, AT&T subscribers living and visiting Boston now have access to two flavors of our 5G. Our fast 5G service, using low-band spectrum is now available throughout the city, and to more than 255 million people in more than 18,000 cities and towns.
Our 5G+ using mmWave delivers lightning-fast speeds in high-traffic areas. Just think, fans at TD Garden can share the biggest slam dunk or breakaway goal of the season almost instantly.
Who can use this? For AT&T wireless customers and FirstNet subscribers who have 5G-capable devices and qualifying plans, AT&T 5G+ mmWave will enable incredible innovation and unlock immersive experiences. That means our customers are able to stream their favorite content, play online games and video chat with friends while spending time in these distinctly Boston locations. In addition, uniting the unmatched benefits of FirstNet with 5G+ mmWave will unlock a whole new world of public safety potential.
