AT&T Teases First Commercially Available 5G Hotspot

AT&T is barreling ahead with 5G and has just announced it has made a successful 5G data transfer on a new device planned for commercial release in 12 cities this year.

The new 5G device is from Netgear and it’s called the Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot and it was used to create what AT&T calls the world’s first millimeter wave mobile 5G browsing session with a standards-based device on a mobile 5G network.

“Today’s news is a seminal moment in the advancement of mobile 5G technology,” said David Christopher, president, AT&T Mobility and Entertainment. “This proves we are well on our way to the promise of mobile 5G for consumers.”

By 2019 AT&T promises to deliver 5G to 19 cities with the Nighthawk.
