In a press release from AT&T, the communication provider unveiled that their new 5G Evolution has arrived in 117 markets as of today. One of those markets happens to be Minneapolis, where users will experience "wireless speeds two times faster than standard LTE."

The 5G Evolution is a direct by-product of the Super Bowl being held in the #BoldNorth. Steve Cramer, president and CEO of the Minneapolis Downtown Council is quoted in the release as saying, “These ultra-fast 5G Evolution speeds from AT&T are just one more asset we have to promote Minneapolis as a thriving, vibrant 21st Century metropolis.”

So what's so awesome about 5G? The release states that 5G Evolution technologies can deliver theoretical peak speeds for capable devices of up to 400 megabits per second. Here's to hoping in the next year it branches out a little more and hits SE Minnesota!
