AT&T Launches 5G In 10 Cities, Nationwide Coverage By Q2 2020

AT&T 5G 10 cities

5G has launched in 10 cities via AT&T’s service, kicking off the next phase of wireless technology. The 10 cities are Birmingham, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Providence, Rochester, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose. While this is definitely a good start, the company is aiming to have nationwide coverage within the first half of 2020.

Kicking this off will be the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G, with owners of that model being able to access the 5G network right now. However, more devices will roll out with the functionality in the future. An exact timeline on this wasn’t given, so we’ll have to wait on more news from the company on that.

It’s worth noting that the 5G network that AT& T is launching today is for the sub-6GHz range, which offers wider coverage at increased speeds compared to LTE. However, another type of 5G operates in the mmWave range and offers even faster speeds than the former. The downside to this is that it has a shorter range, and should be used when in high-trafficked areas like big cities. This service is referred to as 5G+.

All eyes are on Apple’s iPhones next year for their debut of 5G, and rumors suggest that there will be an impressive four different iPhones that will have 5G support in 2020. It is also expected that they will support both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G, though this will be limited to markets like the US, Canada and the UK. Many smaller countries will only have have sub-6Hz support, with some not having 5G support at all in order to reduce Apple’s costs.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
