Sprint begins mobile 5G service rollout

Sprint Corp. is launching its mobile 5G service in the Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and Kansas City areas.

The U.S. carrier also expects to launch mobile 5G service in areas of Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington, D.C., in the coming weeks, according to a May 30 news release.

5G is set to offer download speeds many times faster than the current 4G LTE wireless networks.

Consumers can opt for the Unlimited Premium plan for Sprint's 5G-enabled phones to access unlimited data, talk and text nationwide, along with access to Hulu LLC and Amazon.com Inc.'s Prime services, among others.

The plan costs $80 per month with AutoPay for one line.

Sprint will launch its first 5G-compatible devices May 31. The devices include LG Electronics Inc.'s V50 ThinQ and HTC Corp.'s 5G Hub. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.'s Galaxy S10 5G will launch this summer.
