AT&T milestone as 5G network first in the U.S. to surpass 2 gigabit wireless speeds

Info provided by AT&T as I'm sure there will be many more milestones when it comes to 5G.

Pushing limits is exactly what a 5G world is all about. Today, another mobile 5G speed milestone was achieved when we hit peak speeds surpassing 2 gigabits per second on our live, commercial 5G network in Atlanta using the NETGEAR® Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot. AT&T is the first carrier in the U.S. to reach this speed, and just like last month’s record smashing through the 1 gigabit mark, this also was outside the lab in the real world.

Sustained speeds like this would be equivalent to downloading a 2-hour HD movie in 10 seconds –blazing fast in any environment. Of course, reaching 5G’s ultimate potential is a journey and these milestones represent just part of the exciting moments in building a 5G world. It started commercially with our 2018 launch as the first carrier to make mobile 5G a reality in the U.S. and we continue leading the race in revolutionizing how we live, work and play.

AT&T is all about finding ways to unleash the full potential of 5G, including celebrating the exciting milestones along the journey. Can't wait to see what is next!
