AT&T gets burned by rivals over its fake 5G network

Fake 5G Network at&t

T-Mobile CEO John Legere addressed the situation in his recent 2019 predictions blog post, saying that AT&T would "basically be lying to their customers" with this 5G E icon and promising that he and the rest of T-Mo "will continue to call them on it".

While those improvements should help boost LTE speeds, it doesn't bring them anywhere near what 5G will be capable of. Verizon chief technology officer Kyle Malady penned a letter that calls on the larger wireless industry to resist the temptation to "over-hype and under-deliver on the 5G promise".

The incident began after a recent update to some AT&T phones replaced the 4G LTE indicator with a new 5G E icon instead.

AT&T customers might have noticed a new symbol appearing in the top corner of their devices and for those who aren't paying attention, they might be duped into thinking the telco is offering 5G connectivity. It's why we committed to build the first 5G Ultra Wideband network.

Lindsay Lohan Says She's Written a Treatment for Mean Girls 2
Last time I was in NY , I went up to Lorne, and I was like, 'Please!' It's in their hands". "It's in their hands". Her new reality television series is set to premiere on Tuesday night.

AT&T has already launched a 5G network in a few markets, but it's now only available via mobile hotspots. The home service uses Verizon's own standard for 5G, which is similar, but not the same. 5G service on AT&T and Verizon is being rolled out in limited pockets of certain markets. "And we aren't going to try to fool consumers about it".

The carrier said it'll brand the real 5G with mmWare technology as "5G+".

The Verizon exec even promised that his company wouldn't make the same mistake: "Verizon is making this commitment today: We won't take an old phone and just change the software to turn the 4 in the status bar into a 5". T-Mobile chose to have a little bit of fun with it via a pretty amusing video which mocks AT&T's decision by showing someone upgrade a T-Mobile device to 9G simply by putting a 9G sticker on the device. He added that "When we say '5G, ' we mean 5G".
