AT&T’s 5G network is now live for users in Lenoir. With this deployment, consumers and businesses in Lenoir with a 5G-capable device will now have access to AT&T’s 5G service delivered using low-band spectrum.
“I am pleased that AT&T is bringing its most advanced wireless technology to Caldwell County,” said Rep. Destin Hall. “A stronger, more robust wireless network strengthens our economy and helps families stay connected and businesses stay competitive. That is why I work for policies which make North Carolina a state where companies want to invest and do business.”
AT&T 5G offers nationwide connectivity on its low-band sub-6 spectrum, which provides broadband coverage that will ultimately offer a better wireless experience with greater capacity and faster response times for users.
AT&T invested more than $1.9 billion in North Carolina wireless and wired networks from 2017-2019, making 1,500 upgrades to NC wireless networks, including 74 new cell sites. These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed for users. Increased telecommunications infrastructure is a valuable asset for North Carolina, we hope to see competitors bring further investment into our state in the near future.
