AT&T’s launch of 5G+ means new experiences for sports fans and concert goers

What’s the news? We’re taking the fan experience at Spurs games to the next level! AT&T just launched its 5G+ service at the AT&T Center. 5G+ is our name for 5G delivered using millimeter wave spectrum. That means the Spurs players won’t be the only ones putting up unprecedented performances and fast speeds. AT&T 5G+ capabilities, including speeds up to 1 Gbps. will help transform the way fans experience sports and concerts.

Why is this important? AT&T customers with a 5G-enabled device and a qualifying plan will now have access to both of AT&T’s flavors of 5G inside the AT&T Center – our nationwide 5G service delivered via low-band spectrum and the performance of even faster 5G+. So, if you’re at a Spurs game and just shot video of you and your friends going crazy in the stands after an epic buzzer-beater, you can upload that to social media using 5G+ while still downloading stats, player profiles and other in-game enhancements.

Value of AT&T 5G AT&T already has the Fastest Nationwide 5G Network1 over low-band sub-6 spectrum. And as we continue to build out our 5G network, our speeds will continue to increase, and lag time will decrease, perfect for your on-demand entertainment and favorite mobile games.

And with the launch of 5G+ at the AT&T Center and parts of 36 cities across the country, customers can use wide “lanes” of spectrum to unlock unprecedented experiences in public venues to take advantage of even faster speeds, amazing response times and greater capacity only available through 5G+.
