AT&T said it will also include dynamic spectrum sharing technology in some of these markets. DSS helps operators roll out 5G services more quickly, enabling them to share spectrum resources between 4G LTE and 5G based on network demand.

“DSS is an important steppingstone on our path to nationwide 5G,” said Igal Elbaz, senior VP of wireless and access technology for AT&T, in a statement. “We were the first U.S. carrier to deploy this technology in our network, and it’s now playing an important role as we work toward a nationwide 5G footprint this summer.”
