AT&T Adds Three More U.S. Cities to 5G Plans as It Races Verizon

AT&T Inc. will roll out 5G service to three additional U.S. cities, a sign that the industrywide push to adopt the speedier standard is finally moving from marketing announcements to reality. Oklahoma City and two North Carolina cities -- Charlotte and Raleigh -- will be getting the mobile service later this year, AT&T said on Friday. Rival Verizon Communications Inc., meanwhile, has discussed adopting 5G service in four cities this year, including Los Angeles and Sacramento, California.
