AT&T Announces Availability of Super-Fast 5G+ Service at Mercedes-Benz Superdome
AT&T’s 5G+ available for customers to experience while attending sporting events and other events at the iconic stadium
First responders in New Orleans gain access to 5G+ on FirstNet®, America’s public safety network
What’s the news? We’re taking the fan experience to the next level with the introduction of AT&T 5G+ at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. 5G+ is our name for 5G delivered using millimeter wave spectrum, which is ideal for high-traffic areas. That means the players on the field won’t be the only ones putting up unprecedented performances.
Why is this important? AT&T customers with a compatible device and qualifying plan will now have access to the super-fast speeds and increased connectivity that are ideal for iconic venues like the Superdome.1
Who can use this? AT&T 5G+ will enable incredible innovation and unlock immersive experiences – especially when larger public gatherings are permitted and a stadium, packed with fans, can celebrate big wins once again.
In addition to fans, first responders on FirstNet in the New Orleans area will have access to AT&T 5G+ at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. They will maintain voice communication through always-on priority and preemption on LTE and the intuitive FirstNet network will determine the best route for data traffic, whether that’s 5G+ or LTE spectrum.
Where can I get it? AT&T 5G+ is available in parts of 38 cities and more than 20 venues across the country. Learn more about AT&T’s 5G network at att.com/5gforyou and check out AT&T’s 5G coverage in the New Orleans area here.
