AT&T is pretending like 5G is already here – and misleading users
11 January, 2019, 12:39
Bob O'Donnell from Technalysis Research saidAT&T's "5G E" network may be slightly faster than the current 4G service but it is more like "4.5G" than "5G".
That's why we're calling on the broad wireless industry to commit to labeling something 5G only if new device hardware is connecting to the network using new radio technology to deliver new capabilities.
AT&T confirmed plans for three 5G devices for 2019: NETGEAR Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot and two 5G smartphones from Samsung this year.
Slapping a "5G E" logo on LTE phones is misleading and confusing at best. If you ask the carrier it will say "it's 5G E" which is not "5G+" (the marketing name it's using for its actual 5G network), but who will be able to realize the minutiae of that difference?
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).
AT&T's revelation that it will use sub-6GHz spectrum for its nationwide 5G offering aligns the carrier much more closely to T-Mobile's 5G plans.
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. Test cases such as Hurricane Florence and the California wildfires have also shown the idea of giving first responders a dedicated network, free from congestion from other users, can help safety officials do their job. Verizon recently started rolling out a, but it's rather than the 5G NR (New Radio) global standard.
LTE Advanced is not 5G, despite what AT&T might want you to believe.
AT&T said that, by the end of this year, it expects its network capacity to increase by 50% since 2017. AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint used to call an enhanced 3G network 4G in the early 2010s to tap into the excitement around the novel term and give themselves a competitive edge over their rivals. It is, in fact, a technology that everyone else calls "LTE-A" or LTE Advanced. Fortunately for them, AT&T will have some handsets ready for them to upgrade to when the time comes.
