AT&T to launch 5G in parts of Milwaukee area in 2020

Last updated on March 17th, 2020 at 01:35 pm

AT&T will offer 5G to some of its customers in the Milwaukee area by February 2020, the mobile carrier announced Friday.

Milwaukee is among several large cities on AT&T’s list to expand 5G in 2020, including Boston, Las Vegas, New York City, San Francisco, Louisville and others.

While a map indicating 5G coverage shows the greater Milwaukee area as having access, Milwaukee proper will only have access to 4G LTE, according to an AT&T 5G map. It’s not clear when AT&T will offer 5G in the City of Milwaukee.

An AT&T spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

In the coming weeks, AT&T’s 5G network will also launch over a low-band spectrum in the Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Providence, Rhode Island, Rochester, New York and San Diego market areas, according to a press release.

Earlier this year, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers signed a bill intended to help speed the introduction of 5G to the state. In October, Chicago-based U.S. Cellular said that customers in Wisconsin and Iowa will have access to its 5G network.
