    AT&T 5G launches today in select markets today

    How quickly will 15gb be used with 5G speeds, for $70 a month.

    AT&T 5G launches today in select markets today

    I guess they want to regress again to tiered data like VZ did when they launched LTE.

    All of a sudden Unlimited will become unsustainable again

    Proof once again that the only thing that stands between us and AT&T giving us the shaft ala Canada is competition.

    With three people streaming HD video, about 2.5 hours. ;~>

    I have not seen anything about what speed the service is offering. It doesn't really matter much for one user. About the most data speed that people use is streaming video. That only takes 4-5 Mbps.

    It's a start, but this initial offering of data amount and price does not impress me. Things will get interesting as the technology becomes widespread. I already have an unlimited hotspot. It is sweet.

    This is ridiculous. There’s no reason to cap data usage on millimeter wave, unless we’re talking about terabytes.

    Backhaul for all that data isn't free. Terabytes is probably what AT&T is thinking about. That is what some people will use if you let them. I expect prices will sort out to much lower as the market develops with competitors.

    Verizon 5G-NR has no data caps though and it’s meant for that type of high use case.

    Maybe AT&T’s 5G-NR is being deployed on less bandwidth than VZ?

    I think I saw somewhere 12/21/18 and I think the price is $500. No thanks.

    I'm glad ATT is doing this, we don't want a repeat of 20... oh yeah.

    It never happened where the entire internet came crashing down because someone used more data.

    Not the entire Internet, but it certainly does happen quite regularly on oversubscribed/overused services. If I try to use the Internet on my Verizon phone near the University during evening Prime Time the Internet is effectively dead with a data speed of 0.5 Mbps or less. I believe this is also common in urban office blocks at lunchtime.

    More infrastructure is needed for more capacity. AT&T seems to be saying they don't have it yet.

    I know full well that backhaul isn’t cheap. But the fact remains that the 5G millimeter wave airlink is effectively unlimited, meaning that 5G should be priced similarly to wired Internet services. (Sure, it’ll cost more to build it out initially, but it’s still FAR cheaper than getting fiber optic cabling to every customer.)
