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

Although the "5G E" network may run slightly faster than the current 4G service, it's essentially the existing 4G network with some added features that can boost speed. When launching the device in December, AT&T said it became "the first and only company in the United States to offer a mobile 5G device over a commercial, standards-based mobile 5G network".

"What we're trying to do is let them know that there is an enhanced experience in their market", Elbaz reiterated when asked whether the 5G E term was misleading. AT&T hasn't really upgraded it's network a whole lot in the past few years, so if anything it is likely slower compared to Verizon and T-Mobile's network. In fact, AT&T doesn't now sell any smartphones capable of connecting to its emerging 5G network, only a mobile hotspot.

Verizon further called on the entire wireless industry to "commit to labeling something 5G only if new device hardware is connecting to the network using new radio technology..."

Malta to let stranded asylum seekers disembark ahead of redistribution in EU
Alter said eight countries have now indicated their willingness to take in the migrants but talks are ongoing with more. The deal also decides the future of another 249 rescued migrants already in the island nation.


In 2018, AT& chose to design its own cell site routers and released those hardware specs as open blueprints so any hardware maker can build them for AT&T.

The network expansion continues after a fast-growing first year for FirstNet, which is borne of a partnership between AT&T and the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). The customer will think that Verizon is behind, because AT&T has it. It took to Twitter to post a video showing someone putting a sticky note over an iPhone's LTE logo to relabel it "9G" with the caption "didn't realize it was this easy".

T-Mobile US's fourth-quarter wireless customer gains surpassed analyst estimates and topped strong growth at larger rival Verizon Communications, continuing the company's run as the fastest-growing USA mobile carrier. The new 5G E icon is expected to reach more AT&T phones throughout the year.

Again, it's not 5G, and other networks have the same upgrades.

An AT&T announcement yesterday said that its real 5G network will be ready nationwide in early 2020, using sub-6GHz spectrum.

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