AT&T plans to start lying to customers in the near future by claiming that the service they receive is with some metric, 5G. It will do this by displaying a "5G E" logo in the corner of units where "E" stands for 5G Evolution. What is 5G Evolution? It's just the same service you get right now.
According to FierceWireless, it contacted AT & T to ask about the plans. AT&T confirmed that customers in markets with 4G LTE technology such as 4 × 4 MIMO and 256 QAM will start to see the 5G E logo instead.
"If they have one of the latest Android devices, and it connects to a tower enabled with 5G Evolution, they will soon see a" 5G E "indicator appear on the screen, wrote an AT & T spokesperson in response to FierceWireless questions. "Basically, we'll roll this out on a handful of devices, with multiple devices showing the indicator in the spring of 2019."
5G is a complex, evolving standard with many moving parts, using much larger frequency bands Overall, the 4G LTE ever made, the standard is designed to give businesses a path forward from LTE to 5G over a period of time, and to allow the introduction of faster service and connectivity to a much larger class of devices than previously. 5G, in one word, is complicated
But "complicated" does not mean that there are no technologies that are and are not 5G. logo, which doesn't really mean "4G" at all, me n instead referred to HSPA +. It was a lie when Sprint, T-Mobile and AT & T announced these devices as support for 4G (which was then understood as a true next-generation data standard), and it becomes a lie when AT&T rebrands its devices to call them 5G E. LTE's performance and overall capability was an order of magnitude removed from that labeled 4G. This will also be true in the coming year.
Businesses take these steps because they want to market devices and networks as "5G" without doing the job of creating the products that would justify marketing. AT & Ts 5G E will sit next to its "5G +" offer (it is reserved for the 5G service launched last week with partial service in 12 cities if you invest in a ridiculous $ 500 hotspot and fancy to give AT&T $ 70 per month for 15 GB of data).
Off to a starting start so far, boys. Seriously.
