This morning, AT&T announced that its 5G network is now nationwide. By “nationwide,” I believe AT&T means that the service is estimated to cover over 200 million Americans. There are still plenty of parts of the country that are not covered by AT&T’s 5G service.
AT&T shared a few other noteworthy items in its announcement:
- AT&T will add 5G support to the Unlimited Starter plan (the carriers’ most basic postpaid unlimited plan) at no extra charge on August 7.
- Business customers on the Unlimited Web-Only plan will also get 5G support starting on August 7.
- Cricket Wireless will begin offering 5G service on August 21.
On all of these plans, 5G service will only be available for subscribers with 5G-compatible devices.
