AT&T on Monday announced it will start testing 5G-ready Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) equipment in the lab early next year, with a commercial rollout slated for late 2019.

Samsung Electronics America and CommScope have been chosen as suppliers, with CommScope serving as the Spectrum Access System (SAS) provider, and Samsung providing CBRS compliant radios and base station equipment.

AT&T indicates that its first use case for CBRS will be fixed wireless internet deployments for residential and enterprise broadband services. The telecom giant said it will start by using LTE in the CBRS 3.5 GHz band and then shift to 5G.
