AT&T 5G Launches in North Shore and North Country Areas

What’s the news? AT&T’s* 5G network – the most reliable 5G network1 – is now live for consumers and businesses in the North Shore and North Country areas.

With this deployment, consumers and businesses in Two Harbors, Silver Creek, Silver Bay, Hovland and Ely with a 5G-capable device and qualifying plan will now have access to AT&T’s 5G service delivered using low-band spectrum.

Why is this important? We know how important it is for our customers to stay connected. AT&T 5G offers nationwide connectivity on its low-band sub-6 spectrum, which provides broadband coverage that will ultimately offer a better wireless experience with greater capacity and faster response times for businesses and consumers. 2

Committed to our Networks: From 2018-2020, AT&T invested more than $300 million in our wireless network in Minnesota. In 2020, we made nearly 2,000 network enhancements across the state, including more than 25 new cell sites, additional network capacity, network upgrades and small cells.

These investments boost reliability, coverage, speed and overall performance for residents and their businesses.

What people are saying:

“We consistently work to provide better coverage for Minnesota’s communities.”

Paul Weirtz — President, AT&T Minnesota

“At a time when technology is proving to be even more essential for communications, AT&T customers can rest assured that our company is continuing to invest in our network and new technologies to make connection easier. We consistently work to provide better coverage for Minnesota’s communities. And we’re investing in our wireless network along the North Shore, in the North Country, and across the state to accomplish that,” said Paul Weirtz, state president, AT&T Minnesota.
