SEATTLE – We're taking the fan experience to the next level with the introduction of AT&T 5G+ at Lumen Field. 5G+ is AT&T's name for 5G delivered using millimeter wave spectrum, which is ideal for high-traffic areas. That means the players on the field won't be the only ones putting up unprecedented performances.

Why is this important? AT&T customers with a compatible device and qualifying plan will now have access to the super-fast speeds and increased connectivity ideal for popular venues like Lumen Field.1

Who can use this? AT&T 5G+ will enable incredible innovation and unlock immersive experiences, especially when more fans are permitted inside the stadium to celebrate memorable plays and big Seattle wins.

In addition to fans, first responders on FirstNet – including agencies like Seattle Fire Department will also have access to 5G+ at Lumen Field. They will maintain voice communication through always-on priority and preemption on LTE and the intuitive FirstNet network will determine the best route for data traffic, whether that's 5G+ or LTE spectrum.

Where can I get it? AT&T 5G+ is available in parts of 38 cities and more than 20 venues across the country.
