AT&T gets mocked by Verizon, T-Mobile for fake 5G network

AT&T 5GE phone branding AT&T is pretending like 5G is already here – and misleading users
Sandy Mccarthy | 11 January, 2019, 06:30

In reality, AT&T hasn't really deployed a 5G network yet - it's just renaming LTE Advanced and LTE Advanced Pro to 5GE.

The results suggest it'll be tough for AT&T and T-Mobile's planned merger partner Sprint to hit their current estimates for subscriber growth in a mature wireless market that has seen little new-customer growth overall. The new 5G E icon is expected to reach more AT&T phones throughout the year.

AT&T was the second U.S. operator to launch a commercial 5G service, however its network is limited to mobile hotspot services in parts of 12 cities in what seemed to be a last-ditch attempt to honour its pledge to go live in 2018.

In that same blog post, Legere tried to get ahead of folks that would say T-Mobile did the same thing as AT&T when it branded its HSPA+ coverage as "4G" back in 2010. T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in a characteristically enthusiastic statement announcing the results.

Users Outraged As Facebook App Cannot Be Removed From Some Samsung Phones
Winke was concerned about, and probably at least a part of the reason why he wanted to delete that app from his smartphone. A Facebook spokesperson told Bloomberg that disabling the app on Samsung devices makes the app behave as if it is deleted.

Verizon this week pledged that it won't falsely call 4G phones 5G, and AT&T's name change was also mocked by T-Mobile and Sprint. "And I love the fact that we broke our industry's narrative two days ago, and they're frustrated and gonna do what they're gonna do", Donovan added.

In an interview with Tom's Guide, AT&T's Senior Vice President for Wireless Technology, Igal Elbaz, stated that the carrier isn't trying to mislead its customers.

AT&T's only real 5G offering is a Netgear mobile hotspot that costs $499.

Some Android phones already claim they're connected to a 5G network. Now that 5G E icon has begun rolling out, and T-Mobile made a decision to poke fun at it. In select cities, however, the company will also offer increased data speeds through millimeter wave tech, which will be branded as "5G+".
