Study finds AT&T’s 5G E slower than T-Mobile and Verizon’s 4G




It’s obvious to some that 5G is going to be a smartphone seller over the next couple of years. Not only that, but it could also persuade some people to switch to a carrier that has the fastest 5G network in their area. The thing is, most people will unlikely need or notice issues with their mobile connection as long as they see a 5G logo in their status bar. Marketing is a tricky beast and AT&T thought it would be a good idea to launch what they’re calling the “5G E” network. As it turns out though, a study has shown that AT&T’s newly marketed network is actually slower than both T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless’ 4G network.

This 5G E network has been confusing for some and misleading for others. It’s not a true 5G mobile connection and Sprint has gone so far as to sue AT&T on the grounds that they are misleading customers. Both T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless have also rebuked these marketing claims. What AT&T is doing is simply rebranding their LTE-A network with carrier aggregation (also known as LAA), 4×4 MIMO and 256 QAM, as “5G E.” You can see how misleading this can be for uninformed customers, but AT&T has ignored this and are even showing the 5G E logo in the status bar with the Android Pie updates to Samsung devices.
