AT&T have announced 5G coverage is coming to 12 cities by the end of 2018.

It is unknown which 12 markets will benefit from the ultra-fast network first, but the news – together with Verizon and Sprint’s promise to implement 5G over the next couple of years – gives device makers such as Apple, Sprint and Huawei the opportunity to start making phones and tablets with 5G capabilities.

“5G will change the way we live, work and enjoy entertainment,” AT&T’s Melissa Arnoldi said in a statement. “We’re moving quickly to begin deploying mobile 5G this year and start unlocking the future of connectivity for consumers and businesses. With faster speeds and ultra-low latency, 5G will ultimately deliver and enhance experiences like virtual reality, future driverless cars, immersive 4K video and more.”
