At present, the discussion about 5G in the smart phone industry has entered a white-hot stage, but it is still not possible to use 5G networks in China for a short period of time. According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the large-scale popularization of 5G needs to wait until 2020. However, the United States on the other side of the ocean has announced the official opening of the 5G network.
On the evening of December 18th, US operator AT&T officially announced that it will be Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Louisville, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Raleigh, San Antonio. And 12 companies in Waco provide 5G network services, which means that the United States officially commercializes 5G networks.
In the first half of 2019, AT&T will also launch 5G services in several cities including Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Nashville. By then, 5G networks will cover most large and medium-sized cities in the United States.water blocking yarn
At the same time, according to the consumer standards announced by AT&T, the current 5G network charges 15GB for $70, and the peak download speed is expected to be 125MB/s with a latency of less than 1 millisecond. However, the current base station construction has not been perfected, so the maximum download speed of the 5G network provided by AT&T is limited to 50MB/s, and will gradually increase to the expected peak speed in the future. flooding compound for optical fiber cable
It is only slightly ironic that at present, there is no consumer-grade 5G device available in the US market. Smartphones don't need to be said, Netgear's Nighthawk 5G mobile hotspot is the first 5G network device to be sold, but it needs to arrive in US time on Friday. In other words, even if AT&T officially launched 5G network services, the public will not enjoy it for the time being. PVC pelltes
