AT&T completes “world first” millimetre wave mobile 5G browsing session

  AT&T has successfully completed what it believes was the “world’s first” millimetre wave mobile 5G browsing session on a mobile 5G network. The session was carried out in Waco, Texas, on what will be a commercially available 5G device – the Netgear Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot. The telco said this would be the first standards-based mobile 5G device in the world able to access a live millimetre wave 5G network. This 3GPP 5G NR standards-based mobile 5G connection used Ericsson equipment as well as the Netgear mobile device, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem, which is also claimed to be the world’s first commercial 5G NR modem with millimetre wave capability.

AT&T Announces Successful First 5G Hotspot Test

AT&T has achieved another milestone in the race to flip the switch on its commercial 5G network. The company has announced that it has successfully completed the first browsing session on a commercial-grade 5G hotspot device. The test was conducted in Waco, Texas. That’s one of the cities where the carrier says it will rollout the 5G network first. The device used was a Netgear Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot.

AT&T says its 5G network is launching ‘in the next few weeks’

AT&T’s real mobile 5G network based on the 3GPP 5G NR spec is coming soon

AT&T promised at the beginning of the year that it would be launching a real, standards-based 5G network at the end of 2018, and during its latest earning call, CEO John Donovan confirmed those plans, promising that the network would be launching “in the next few weeks,” via Phone Scoop.

This would be an authentic next-generation 5G network, unlike the “5G Evolution” network that it rolled out last year, which essentially amounted to the same 4G LTE improvements that its competitors were doing under some creative branding.

Pixel 3 supports Wi-Fi calling, hotspot, and HD voice on AT&T

With all the recent issues cropping up on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, it’s probably about time for some good news, right? As it turns out, the Pixel 3 on AT&T has access to network features most other unlocked phones don’t — including Wi-Fi calling, HD voice, and creating a hotspot.

AT&T Stock Just As I Suspected, AT&T Did Not Crash And Burn

Back in May, I wrote a series of articles expressing my opinion that AT&T (T) remained a blue-chip, income-oriented stock and that investors were overreacting to the company’s negative price movement surrounding the Time Warner (NYSE:TWX) acquisition drama. At the time, shares were trading down in the $31/$32 area, which I said was essentially in line with a generational low valuation that would likely result in strong support. I also believed that the company’s dividend was safe, despite the high leverage on the balance sheet post the TWX purchase. While others disagreed, calling for calamity, my overarching message was this: focus on the fundamentals and ignore the noise. Well, now six months later, I wanted to re-visit AT&T while still voicing the same opinion.


AT&T WarnerMedia will start a new streaming service for consumers in the fourth quarter of 2019, challenging Netflix and a planned product from Walt Disney. A direct-to-consumer service would capitalize on WarnerMedia’s vast library of movies, TV shows, documentaries and animation. Media companies are all scrambling to offer more direct services in response to consumers’ cutting their cable subscriptions. AT&T, which completed its acquisition of Time Warner in June, also is looking for payoff from the $85 billion deal.
