Where Does AT&T Have 5G & 5G+ Coverage?

AT&T 5G Coverage Map

By committing to 5G requirements back in 2016, AT&T began running on a 5G network. Presently, with their low-band and millimeter wave spectrum network, they are already serving customers. The coverage map of AT&T 5G includes 190 regions of approximately 120 million individuals by April 2020. Of these, the low-band network encompasses 80 million individuals.

Types of 5G networks that AT&T currently offers.  

  1. AT&T 5G (Low-Band Spectrum) 
  2. AT&T 5G+ (Millimeter-wave spectrum)

AT&T 5G Low-Band Spectrum

Unlike T-Mobile which is using the 600 MHz band, the AT&T spectrum utilizes its holding of 850 MHz band. This enables them to provide a low-band 5G network to the maximum of its customers. This low-band 5G network is available to 44 states as of now.

Following is the comprehensive list of all the states and counties where AT&T low-band 5G network is available (AT&T Website). Please make sure to click the link to see the covered counties.

AT&T 5G+ Millimeter Wave Spectrum 

ATT decided to deploy a high-speed millimeter wave(mmW) spectrum in selected cities of the US. AT&T calls it 5G+ network. Please note that AT&T 5G+ network is available only in ‘parts’ of the cities. Although it’s a short-range network, its faster than the AT&T 5G network. The limitation of the mmW spectrum is that it can not travel farther. It also can not penetrate buildings or structures. To overcome this inability, more 5G hotspots are deployed in the area. Usually, there are installed at the gap every 100 feet. The speed, however, is drastically fast in the millimeter-wave spectrum network.

U.S. Cities Where AT&T 5G+ is Available Today

Following are the cities where 5G+ network is deployed:

  • AZ: Phoenix
  • CA: Los Angeles, Menlo Park, Oakland, Redwood City, San Bruno, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, West Hollywood
  • FL: Jacksonville, Miami, Miami Gardens, Orlando
  • GA: Atlanta
  • IN: Indianapolis
  • KY: Louisville
  • LA: New Orleans
  • MD: Baltimore, Ocean City
  • MI: Detroit
  • NC: Charlotte, Raleigh
  • NV: Las Vegas
  • NY: New York City
  • OH: Cleveland
  • OK: Oklahoma City
  • PA: King of Prussia, Philadelphia
  • TN: Nashville
  • TX: Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Waco
Like T-Mobile, AT&T is following the strategy of rolling out a low band 5G network in most parts of the US. This would let most of the people enjoy the 5G service, albeit at low speed. On the other hand, the dense urban areas will get AT&T 5G+ networks which is much faster. With higher speed, AT&T 5G+ network can support industrial applications involving IoT, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, etc. With 44 states out of 52 states, AT&T 5G coverage map covers almost the entire nation.
