AT&T announced another big expansion of its low-band 5G network today, saying that it now covers 160 million Americans, an increase of 40 million since the last it gave us numbers. Atlanta, Baton Rouge, Nashville, and Tallahassee are among the cities where a “5G” icon will light up on AT&T phones for the first time.
AT&T’s announcement comes on the same day we’re hearing about the new Samsung A71 5G, which will be available this Friday as a pre-order from AT&T, and on sale from T-Mobile and Samsung for $600. AT&T is giving a $100 gift card to anyone who pre-orders the phone.
