Indianapolis is Next AT&T 5G City
INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis is the latest city to have 5G technology from AT&T. Indy is the seventh city in the country to have the innovation introduced, joining Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Raleigh and Waco.
AT&T invested nearly $425 million into their wireless and wired networks from 2015-2017, laying the groundwork to launch 5G.
"I'm thrilled that AT&T chose Indianapolis as an early adopter for this impressive technology infrastructure investment,” said TechPoint CEO Mike Langellier. “Indy is home to one of the fastest growing tech hubs in the country, an impressive base of talent, and a combination of Fortune 500's and up-and-coming startups that will leverage this 5G infrastructure to further accelerate growth."
The company also launched 5G Evolution and LTE-LAA in Indianapolis last year. The LTE-LAA technology allows the network peak speeds up to 1 gigabit per second.
