AT&T defends misleading "5G" network icons on 4G phones

  • AT&T is pretending like 5G is already here – and misleading users

But 5G E (the "E" is for "Evolution") isn't 5G-it's AT&T's 4G LTE network.

Meanwhile, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg delivered a keynote address that highlighted how companies like Disney and The New York Times are using high-speed 5G technologies, according to an announcement. Regardless of the aesthetic change, AT&T phones are not running on a 5G network.

"If network providers, equipment manufacturers, handset makers, app developers and others in the wireless ecosystem engage in behavior created to purposefully confuse consumers, public officials and the investment community about what 5G really is, we risk alienating the very people we want most to join in developing and harnessing this exciting new technology", wrote Malady. Verizon recently started rolling out a, but it's rather than the 5G NR (New Radio) global standard.

The advent of 5G networks will surely feature overpriced phones with designs that must make significant compromises to accommodate 5G antennas, but at least T-Mobile and Verizon phones probably won't feature fake 5G logos - not after they went through the trouble of calling out AT&T for that very thing, right? In fact, AT&T doesn't now sell any smartphones capable of connecting to its emerging 5G network, only a mobile hotspot. Instead, you will still be using 4G LTE service, but with a mix of technologies (4×4 MIMO antennas, 256 QAM and carrier aggregation) that could potentially provide faster speeds.

Verizon has called on the mobile industry to not use the term 5G for services until they use actual 5G hardware and radio standards.

AT&T will expand its deal with Magic Leap - a company building augmented reality goggles - to include business solutions in addition to consumer offerings.

AT&T enables almost 2.2 million US business customer locations with high-speed fiber connections by serving almost 500,000 USA business buildings lit with fiber from AT&T.

"We really frustrated rivals last month when we did so". Those additions, which pushed the total customer count to nearly 80 million, helped T-Mobile produce its best quarterly results ever, the company announced Wednesday afternoon.

5G is the fifth generation network for cellular mobile communications.

Not to be left out, Sprint also chimed in and took shots at AT&T.
