US carriers have used 5G announcements to create excitement and market themselves - especially since building the network infrastructure is such a pricey investment, said Sundeep Rangan, a fellow for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and an associate professor of engineering at New York University. "Ultimately, this means new experiences with augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR), future autonomous cars, and delivery drones", AT&T said. "It has to do with how we think about the infrastructure", said Igal Elbaz, AT&T's senior vice president of wireless network architecture and design, to Mashable. ANTS will let the carrier test unique and forward-looking features on a simulated 5G network for eventual standardisation and use on a commercial network. As reported by The Verge, the cell provider will be launching 5G in two Texas cities - Waco and Dallas - as well as Atlanta, Georgia. That level of 5G is likely years away, though mobile 5G is a promising place to start.
