Where is 5G available? Our 5G network map has the details

Even as you read this, 5G is rolling out across the U.S., and while you likely do not have a phone that can connect to the next-gen network just yet, that day is rapidly approaching as more and more 5G phones arrive on the market. But exactly where is 5G available? Each carrier has been rolling out the network in different cities, and we’ve compiled the list into a map for your viewing pleasure.

But first, to use 5G, you’ll need two things: A phone that supports 5G and a network that offers it. If you’re wondering what 5G smartphones are available in the U.S., we have a handy list you can reference. These range from the Galaxy S20 series to the LG V60 ThinQ 5G to the OnePlus 8 Pro.

It’s also important to note that not all phones that support 5G will get you the superfast speeds you might expect. For example, some phones only support low-band 5G, while others support all 5G frequencies.

For this guide, we’ll only be discussing standards-based 5G. We won’t be including misleading branding like AT&T’s 5G E, which is simply an improved version of 4G LTE. We’ll also only be including mobile 5G, which is the type of 5G that you’ll be able to use on your smartphone (some carriers are deploying broadband 5G).

Keep in mind that 5G is typically only available in select areas of cities, so just because a city is touted as having 5G, it doesn’t mean the network is available throught out that city. It involves the type of spectrum being used, and you can read up on the different variants here.

Here’s where you can find mobile 5G in the U.S., no matter which carrier you’re on. In the map below, carriers offering 5G service are listed for major U.S. cities. We’ll be updating this map as more cities are announced.

5G availability: Major U.S. cities

AT&T

AT&T has a widespread 5G network, but the type of connection that you get will depend on where you live. The companies low-band network is available in a hefty 100 cities around the country, so it’s relatively easy to get on its low-band network. AT&T is also marketing its 5G+ network, which is its name for its millimeter-wave service that should offer much faster speeds.

Cities that are offering AT&T 5G can be found below. Cities that offer 5G+ in some areas are highlighted in bold.

Cities to get AT&T 5G:

  • Chicago
  • Minneapolis

Sprint

Sprint has switched on mobile 5G in a number of cities, and while it’s not as widespread as AT&T and Verizon’s 5G networks, it is growing. Of course, the elephant in the room here is the Sprint merger with T-Mobile, which is now complete. That said, while Sprint and T-Mobile are officially one company, they’re still operating separately for now. Eventually, this will change.

Using Sprint’s 5G phones — like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G — you can take advantage of Sprint’s 5G network in the following cities.

Cities with Sprint 5G:

  • Chicago
  • Kansas City, Missouri
  • Dallas
  • Houston
  • Atlanta
  • New York
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Los Angeles
  • Phoenix

T-Mobile

T-Mobile was the first carrier to deploy its nationwide network, however that network relies largely on the sub-600Mz spectrum, so it won’t be as fast as the mmWave networks that some expect when they hear the term “5G.”

Because T-Mobile’s network is nationwide, we’re not going to list every city where it’s available. That said, we can list every city where you can get mmWave speeds. Alternatively, check out the image in this section for a quick glance at where you can get T-Mobile 5G in general.

Cities with T-Mobile mmWave 5G:

  • New York
  • Los Angeles
  • Las Vegas
  • Dallas
  • Cleveland
  • Atlanta
  • Miami

Verizon

Verizon’s current network isn’t as big as AT&T’s or T-Mobile’s, but Verizon’s promised rollout plans are pretty huge. Verizon has promised 5G coverage to over a dozen extra cities — and that’s on top of the number of cities that already have it.

Cities with Verizon 5G:

  • Atlanta
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Detroit
  • Hoboken, New Jersey
  • Houston
  • Indianapolis
  • Los Angeles
  • Memphis, Tennessee
  • Minneapolis
  • Omaha, Nebraska
  • Providence, Rhode Island
  • Saint Paul, Minnesota

Cities to get Verizon 5G:

We’ll be adding to these lists as more cities are announced by carriers.
