With these seven new locations, AT&T now boasts 5G service in a total of 19 cities across the United States.

AT&T is now the only 5G carrier in 19 cities of the US. Three more devices that will be able to connect to AT&T's 5G network will arrive "later this year".

AT&T announced on Tuesday that it activated its 5G mobile network in seven more cities, making for a total of 19 cities in the United States where AT&T's mobile 5G network is available.

The company opened up a mobile 5G network in December in parts of 12 cities, along with a device to use on it: the Netgear Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot. The Netgear hotspot remains the only way you can access the new network, and AT&T won't sell it to just anyone.

The situation is not much better with the 5G-enabled smartphones. "And, now it's time to offer this experience to more businesses and consumers in another seven cities", Andre Fuetsch, president of AT&T Labs and CTO, said in a statement.

Mike Ballerino, director of Construction at HCS, said the 5G hotspot is a great way for the company to transfer big files, particularly on site. AT&T said at the time that its early 5G deployments would be small and limited, indicating that only some parts of the cities mentioned would be covered by the 5G mobile network, and that device availability would be limited.

5G mobile networks will complement the current 4G LTE networks mobile device users have been using to connect to the internet.

Verizon, on the other hand, has the Motorola Moto Z3 smartphone that can connect to its 5G network with an accessory that attaches to the phone, and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. AT&T says that lower frequency "sub-6" 5G will come next year.
