This Lays the Foundation for Future Mobile 5G Wireless Connectivity Locally in Clarksville.
Clarksville, TN – AT&T* is proud to make the best network according to America’s biggest test1 even better by announcing the launch of 5G Evolution network technologies in Clarksville today. This is one of the 239 markets where this technology is live. We plan to offer 5G Evolution in over 400 markets by the end of the year. In the first half of 2019 we plan to offer nationwide coverage, making 5G Evolution available to over 200 million people.
5G Evolution markets are locations where we’ve deployed technologies that enable a peak theoretical speed for capable devices of at least 400 megabits per second.2 With 5G Evolution technologies, AT&T is laying the foundation for our path to mobile 5G. With 5G Evolution residents and businesses of Clarksville will experience the next generation of mobile connectivity.
Check out this blog from Kevin Petersen, senior vice president of device and network experiences, to learn where 5G Evolution and LTE-LAA technologies are available, a list of capable devices and more about how these technologies continue to lay the foundation for mobile 5G.
“Our customers expect to have access at any moment, from almost any device – almost anywhere,” said Joelle Phillips, president AT&T Tennessee. “And we’re investing heavily to deliver faster, more reliable, highly secure connectivity in order to meet – and exceed – those expectations for Clarksville area residents.”
Additionally, the success of mobile 5G will rely on a quality fiber connection to the wireless towers and small cells, which then translate the fiber connection into an ultra-fast wireless signal for customers. By expanding our 100% fiber network in Clarksville, we now offer an ultra-fast internet connection powered by AT&T Fiber to 20,000 area locations.
Through AT&T Fiber, we’ve built a solid foundation for the future of mobile 5G.
