Original Press Release headline: "BREAKING NEWS: AT&T 5G Network First in the U.S. to Surpass 1 Gigabit Wireless Speeds".
By: Igal Elbaz, SVP Wireless Technology
Today, we were the first carrier in the U.S. to reach mobile 5G speeds surpassing 1 gigabit per second. We reached this milestone on our live 5G network in multiple cities using a commercial device, the NETGEAR® Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot.
This type of speed is equivalent to downloading a 2-hour HD movie in 20 seconds.
We were the first carrier to make mobile 5G a reality in the U.S. in 2018 and today’s achievement is another example of our 5G leadership.
This is all part of our plan. We will continue to test and roll out the latest 5G technologies to our customers and they will continue to be the first to experience the latest and greatest versions of 5G.
