“After significantly contributing to the first phase of 5G standards, conducting multi-city trials, and literally transforming our network for the future, we’re planning to be the first carrier to deliver standards-based mobile 5G – and do it much sooner than most people thought possible,” said Igal Elbaz, senior vice president Wireless Network Architecture and Design. “Our mobile 5G firsts will put our customers in the middle of it all.”

AT&T did not list all of the markets that will get 5G this year but they did announce that Atlanta, Dallas, and Waco will be among the first to get 5G home internet this year. The first 5G compatible devices will be mobile hotspots with 5G capable mobile smartphones coming in early 2019.

Dish, Charter, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and others have all announced plans to roll out 5G home Internet. Dish and others have said that by the end of 2020 they will have half of the United States covered with 5G home Internet.

Verizon also announced that they plan to start rolling out 5G internet in 2018 and Charter is testing 5G in 6 markets around the United States right now.
