Mobile 5G is coming to the United States, whether you’re ready for it or not. In fact, for some of us, it’s already here.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the business, mobile 5G service is still hard to come by for many people in the States. The major service providers have only just started rolling out their 5G service in select areas, and even if you happen to live in one of those cities, most phones don’t have 5G support built-in just yet.

Still, if you manage to get your hands on one of a device that can handle it, here are the places where you can theoretically try out ultra-fast mobile internet. 

Verizon

Verizon’s 5G rollout is still mostly theoretical at this point. Select areas in Chicago and Minneapolis got 5G service in April, while the carrier announced an additional 20 cities that will get service sometime later this year. Those cities include:

  • Washington D.C.

  • Denver, Colorado

  • Providence, Rhode Island

  • Detroit, Michigan

  • Indianapolis, Indiana

  • Boston, Massachusetts

  • Atlanta, Georgia

  • Cleveland, Ohio

  • Columbus, Ohio

  • Cincinnati, Ohio

  • Charlotte, North Carolina

  • Memphis, Tennessee

  • Little Rock, Arkansas

  • San Jose, California

  • Phoenix, Arizona

  • Houston, Texas

  • Dallas, Texas

  • Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

  • Kansas City, Missouri

  • San Diego, California

In addition, Verizon teased that New York City would get 5G coverage in the “near future.”

AT&T

AT&T got ahead of other carriers by launching its 5G network in late 2018, but there’s a bit of a catch. Dubbed “5G+”, AT&T’s network has primarily been meant for the Netgear Nighthawk 5G mobile hotspot device rather than 5G phones. That will change as time goes on and more 5G phones are available in the U.S.

For now, here is where you can enjoy AT&T 5G service:

  • Los Angeles, California

  • San Jose, California

  • San Francisco, California

  • San Diego, California

  • Jacksonville, Florida

  • Orlando, Florida

  • Atlanta, Georgia

  • Indianapolis, Indiana

  • Louisville, Kentucky

  • New Orleans, Louisiana

  • Charlotte, North Carolina

  • Raleigh, North Carolina

  • Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

  • Nashville, Tennessee

  • Austin, Texas

  • Dallas, Texas

  • Houston, Texas

  • San Antonio, Texas

  • Waco, Texas

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G phone launched as a Verizon exclusive in May, but AT&T plans to support it and at least one other Samsung 5G phone by the end of 2019.

Sprint

As for Sprint, the major carrier closed out May with a bang by finally launching commercial 5G support in four U.S. cities. Five other cities will plug into the network in the coming weeks, per Sprint.

Here are the nine cities that will have Sprint 5G support this summer:

  • Atlanta, Georgia (now)

  • Kansas City, Missouri (now)

  • Houston, Texas (now)

  • Dallas, Texas (now)

  • Los Angeles, California (later)

  • New York, New York (later)

  • Phoenix, Arizona (later)

  • Chicago, Illinois (later)

Sprint claims it will be able to cover more areas of the country more quickly if its proposed merger with T-Mobile is approved. Speaking of which…

T-Mobile

T-Mobile is in a bit of a delicate situation with its 5G network. It hasn’t officially launched anywhere, despite the company being fairly open with its plans to build a comprehensive network in the U.S. T-Mobile also announced plans to bring 5G to 30 cities back in early 2018. 

Its network was even secretly functional in Manhattan at the end of May, if one used an unlocked Galaxy S10 5G. Still, the carrier probably won’t announce specific dates or locations until the Sprint merger reaches some kind of regulatory conclusion.
