[Update: 137 more] AT&T expands its low-band 5G network to 90 new markets

Update (6/15/20 @ 1:25 PM ET): AT&T expands its low-band 5G network to 137 more markets in the U.S.

Remember when Sprint sued AT&T for misleading consumers with the “5G E” branding but later settled the dispute? In a cruel twist of fate, now a bunch of Sprint phones are going to lose their 5G connectivity following the merger with T-Mobile. Meanwhile, AT&T continues to expand its 5G network across the US. As a quick refresher, AT&T originally initiated the rollout last year, and later partially introduced its mmWave network last month. The carrier has now added a whopping 90 new cities under the 5G umbrella.

According to AT&T, they are covering “… more than 120 million people” with the latest expansion which is based on low-band spectrum. On the other hand, mmWave 5G, which is branded as “5G+” by AT&T, is based on ultra high-band frequencies and can offer much faster speed than low-band 5G. However, the scope of mmWave is extremely limited (you should be in very specific locations to connect properly), thus upgrading existing LTE infrastructure to low-band 5G is indeed an effective measure.
