AT&T Announces Availability of Super-Fast 5G+ Service in Parts of Downtown Chicago

AT&T’s launch of 5G+ in Downtown Chicago means incredible new experiences are possible for businesses, residents and visitors in iconic parts of the Windy City.

What’s the news? AT&T just launched its 5G+ service in parts of Downtown Chicago. 5G+ is AT&T’s name for 5G service delivered using millimeter wave spectrum, which can deliver unprecedented performance, with download speeds of up to 1 Gbps., in high-traffic areas.

Why is this important? Those who live, work and play in Chicago’s most iconic areas, like inside The Loop and along Magnificent Mile along with the previously announced United Center now have access to both flavors of AT&T 5G. Our 5G service, using low-band spectrum, offers the Fastest Nationwide 5G Network1 to customers on-the-go or at home, and our 5G+ delivers even faster speeds in high-traffic areas.

Who can use this? For our customers who have 5G-capable devices and qualifying plans, AT&T 5G+ will enable incredible innovation and unlock immersive experiences – especially when larger public gatherings are permitted once again. That means our customers will still 
be able to stream their favorite content, play online games and video chat with friends while spending time in these distinctly Chicago locations.
