AT&T trials fixed-wireless mmWave service

Friday 7 October 2016 | 15:29 CET | News
AT&T is trialing a point-to-point millimeter wave wireless technology that uses in-building wiring to deliver a 100 Mbps connection accessible to each apartment unit. This first-of-its-kind trial for AT&T uses a combination of wired and wireless network technologies to provide these speeds to multiple apartment complexes in Minneapolis, outside of the operator's traditional 21 state wireline service area. AT&T plans to make faster speeds available, likely a speed tier of 500Mbps, in these trial properties through this fixed-wireless platform.
