On Thursday the 7th Sprint has filed a lawsuit against AT&T for deceiving customers with labeling 4G LTE-A as 5G E (Evolution). As the four major cellular carriers have been rushing to claim the first 5G network in the North American region. Stephenson from AT&T explained “I fully understand why our competitors might be upset with this, It’s not a play everybody can run. It’s a play that we really like, and it’s a play that’s going to differentiate us in the marketplace as we begin to roll this out over the course of this year.”
Some of the New AT&T phones are even showing 5G E instead of the 4G LTE. This will offer 400 megabits per second. Even thow this is not true 5G speeds, this will be a good foundation for the 5G network from AT&T. These connections are not true 5G plus as the customers are not even able to purchase 5G plus phones yet.
