AT&T's "5G E" slower than Verizon and T-Mobile's 4G LTE services, report finds [telecom]

By James Sanders

AT&T's "5G E" network is just LTE Advanced. An OpenSignal report finds no meaningful advantage to AT&T's network over the networks of Verizon or T-Mobile.

Users of AT&T-branded smartphones began receiving software updates in January that replaced the "4G" or "LTE" icon to read "5G E," as part of the carrier's attempt to blur the lines between two fundamentally incompatible mobile network standards. The move prompted T-Mobile to mock AT&T on Twitter, while Sprint sued AT&T for deceptive marketing practices, and placed a full-page ad in the New York Times bemoaning the situation.
