AT&T Working To Bring 5G Wireless Service To Miami

The city of Miami could become one of the first cities to have 5G wireless service from AT&T.

The company sent a letter to city officials earlier this week stating that Miami was being evaluated for the service, and requesting information on affixing telecommunications equipment to city owned utility poles, street lights, billboards, structures or any other City owned infrastructure.

Miami has not yet been officially announced as a 5G city for the company. Yesterday, AT&T announced that 5G service will roll out later this year in Austin and Indianapolis, with top speeds of up to 400 Mbps. Speeds will later increase to 1 Gbps.

Didn’t know 5G existed. About time though.

Pass. Go pay for your network like everyone else. Nobody will see decreased rates for this giveaway.

T-mobile already rolled out 400Mbps speeds to its customers knowing full well that 1Gbps is the true minimum standard for “5G”. I’m sure people will eat it up though. Nothing like a new number to get people excited. The crazy thing is that many people’s mobile speeds will soon be orders of magnitude faster than their home speeds. Maybe that’ll help light a fire under the cable monopoly’s ass.

How about improving the already 4G footprint throughout the city and county? I have AT&T, and every time I go down to Miami-Dade county to see family, I get about 2-3 bars of signal in dense urban areas. Meanwhile, in Tallahassee, I get a stable 4-5 bars just about everywhere in town from T. Step up your coverage game Miami.

Too bad their current data AND voice service is worthless in much of downtown including where I live in the Design District, even with a micro-cell booster!

It’s pretty shameful that a major US city cannot have solid 4G service in all corners of the city. But fiber optic services are readily available.
