AT&T Bringing Game-Changing 5G Service To Charlotte By The End of This Year


AT&T has just announced that its new 5G service will be coming to Charlotte, along with Raleigh, Oklahoma City, Dallas, Waco, and Atlanta by the end of this year. Along with the upgraded cell towers, they’ll also be installing 5G Wi-Fi hotspots around our city to connect all devices to the new high-speed service.

“We’re deliberately launching with a mix of big and mid-sized cities. One competitor recently boasted ‘New York matters more than Waco’ when discussing their future plans. We politely disagree – all Americans should have access to next-gen connectivity to avoid a new digital divide,” AT&T noted in their press release.

“In a global, interconnected economy, access to the most advanced technology is vital for creating jobs and driving economic growth that benefits everyone in a community,” said Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles. “Access to 5G technology can make a genuine difference in the lives of families and help assure that Charlotte continues to be such a great place to live, work and play.”

AT&T’s new 5G Evolution technology has already rolled out in 141 smaller markets across the country, bringing theoretical peak speeds for capable devices of up to 400 megabits per second. 5G is definitely in the spotlight and can be useful not only in terms of stronger connection but also as another source of income. This refers to a cell tower lease, where property owners can get regular income if they lease a cell tower on their property. With a 5G infrastructure expanding, many landowners certainly explored this opportunity, after which they can also renew cell tower lease when the contract ends.
