• Study confirms AT&T's fake 5G E network is still just LTE

    28 days ago - By The Verge

    AT&T's 5G E network isn't actually 5G. You probably knew that, but since we'll never get tired of dunking on it, a new study now shows that 5G E isn't just misleading, it proves that AT&T's current 4G LTE speeds can actually be slower than other carriers who employ similar LTE Advanced and Advanced Pro technologies. Perhaps this is why AT&T is trying to sweep the lie under the rug .
    The study by Opensignal measured and compared download speeds from AT&T's 5G E network to the results from other carriers' 4G LTE services. From Ars Technica :
    OpenSignal data is based on crowdsourced speed...

    AT&T may have been quick to launch “5G E” branding on its subscribers' smartphones, but the network itself is nowhere near as fast. That's the conclusion one wide-reaching network test has come to, after running speed trials on AT&T's so-called 5G Evolution network that it describes as a stepping stone to true 5G. AT&T sparked controversy back in December, announcing...
