AT&T awards developers and creators at 5G Experience Hackathon

More than 200 developers, designers and creators descended upon Los Angeles this past weekend to build and test mobile solutions using the high bandwidth and low latency of AT&T’s 5G+ network, which reached speeds up to 1.8 Gb per second onsite.

In one of the first 5G hackathons in the industry, participants on over 40 teams came together to highlight the potential of 5G to disrupt the way we experience, consume and create content, all while competing for $100,000 in cash prizes.

This hackathon is an important milestone as we develop compelling 5G use cases ahead of making the network available to consumers later this year.

All submissions were conducted on a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, initially made available to select AT&T businesses and developers this past summer, using the onsite 5G network.
