AT&T launches 5G Evolution in parts of Indianapolis today, providing faster wireless speeds and an enhanced experience for customers.

Case in point: AT&T back in April unveiled "5G Evolution", insisting that the carrier "plans to pave the way to the next generation of faster speeds for its wireless customers with the latest devices in over 20 major metro areas by the end of this year". So while AT&T's 5G Evolution service isn't true 5G, it does offer faster LTE speeds to compatible phones.

The company has already launched the 5G Evolution service in Austin, Texas and has announced plans for Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville and San Francisco.

"It's no accident that IN was chosen for this latest 5G Evolution news", said TechPoint Chief Executive Officer Mike Langellier.

We've worked closely with the City of Indianapolis to ensure AT&T's network and infrastructure in Indy is ready to support the technology of the future.

AT&T said that it invested more than $350 million in its wired and wireless networks in Indianapolis between 2014 to 2016, including a new distributed antenna system and more capacity for nine existing DAS at large venues.

With 5G Evolution, AT&T upgrades select cell towers with LTE Advanced technologies like 256 QAM, 4x4 MIMO, and 3 Carrier Aggregation. According to an AT&T statement, the carrier describes its network investments as "laying the foundation for our evolution to 5G while 5G standards are being finalized".
