AT&T expects nationwide 5G coverage by early 2020, defends "5G E"

ATT 5G E Logo

AT&T was the second USA 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.

T-Mobile also mocked the "5G E" upgrade by joking you could upgrade your phone to 9G by putting a sticky note on it, and now Verizon is openly rejecting AT&T's tactics. But those technologies are part of the years-old LTE-Advanced standard, and are already used by Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint on their 4G networks. The "E" is meant to stand for "Evolution" and will be displayed in areas where AT&T's service conforms to certain advanced characteristics of 4G LTE service. Chief executive John Legere is keen to brag about T-Mobile's progress on the 5G front, especially as the carrier continues to expand its customer base through an aggressive marketing strategy.

Recently, AT&T began rebranding its LTE Advanced network on a select number of smartphones by replacing the existing 4G LTE logo with a new 5G E one. Verizon's average download speed in eight major cities was 53.3Mbps, well ahead of AT&T's 37.1Mbps, according to Tom's Guide measurements.

Speaker's Brexit ruling 'extremely concerning', say ministers
He later yelled "ridiculous" and "that is utter sophistry", but Mr Bercow defended his decision. He added: "I don't think that's what parliamentarians want".

T-Mobile had a more tongue-in-cheek response.

Like 4G before it, the initial rollout of 5G technology to the market is filled with hype and false claims. "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.

The carrier said it'll brand the real 5G with mmWare technology as "5G+". Regardless of the aesthetic change, AT&T phones are not running on a 5G network. The first United Kingdom 5G networks will be available later in 2019.
