AT&T outs the first commercial 5G device with Qualcomm's X50 modem
Verizon may have shouted "first" on the 5G switch, but AT&T has a 5G announcement of its own to make today. It just unveiled what it says is the first commercially available 5G device.
It is a Netgear Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot, and we are getting giddy just thinking of the speeds that this little guy will deliver in areas where AT&T's 5G network goes live in a few weeks from now. The "world’s first millimeter wave mobile 5G browsing session" was just conducted over AT&T’s millimeter-wave 5G network in Waco, Texas, using that same Netgear mobile router.
