AT&T’s 5G network is officially available to 355 markets in the U.S. after the recent addition of 28 across the country, covering 179 million consumers.
“While many of us have been working from home for the past three months, AT&T’s network team continued to build and test our network so that we could emerge from this season with stronger, broader 5G coverage for our customers across the country,” said Chris Sambar, EVP of Technology Operations.

The newest additions to AT&T’s 5G market include:
Arkansas – Ouachita County
Hawaii – Maui County
Idaho – Idaho County
Illinois – Alton-Granite City
Minnesota – Chippewa County
Oregon – Eugene-Springfield
Puerto Rico – Aguadilla, Aibonito Municipality, Arecibo, Mayaguez, Ponce, Rincon Muncipality, San Juan
Tennessee – Lake County
AT&T is also offering dynamic spectrum technology (DSS) so that carriers can share the same channel between 4G and 5G customers at the same time and by demand for a more efficient experience.
DSS is an important stepping stone on our path to nationwide 5G. We were the first U.S. carrier to deploy this technology in our network, and it’s now playing an important role as we work toward a nationwide 5G footprint this summer.
As promised in their initiatives for the year, AT&T has steadily been increasing their 5G coverage in 2020. The provider has more than doubled their low-band 5G network during the months following the COVID-19 outbreak.
“Whether it’s getting you back to work, back to school, or back to play, we’ve got you covered with the fastest wireless speeds in the nation,” Sambar said.
