When is 5G not 5G? When its AT&T’s 5G ‘Evolution’ that is essentially just basic aged LTE and was simply just a system to hold its subscribers from jumping ship to other carriers with an actual, if very small, 5G network. AT&T’s 5G Evolution was shown as the at any time-so-a little deceptive 5GE icon, which at some point led to the Countrywide Advertising and marketing Review Board (NARB) recommending that the carrier really should discontinue advertising and marketing the solution.

AT&T has stated that as a supporter of the self-regulatory process, it will comply with NARB’s decision, in spite of the simple fact that it “…respectfully disagrees with the reasoning and the result attained by the panel the greater part“.

The carrier went on to state the following to Light Reading through:

“AT&T’s prospects nationwide keep on to reward from drastically top-quality speeds and efficiency that its recent network delivers.”

NARB’s recommendation that AT&T cease its marketing of the 5G Evolution solution is only that, the carriers subscribers will even now see the 5GE icon exhibited on their smartphones. Also, as the carrier is shut to completing the rollout of its lowband, 850MHz 5G network, AT&T will just change above to marketing “Nationwide 5G”, omitting the misleading “Evolution” descriptor.

So. That delivers the 5G Evolution to an conclude, but you’ll nevertheless see the 5GE icon on your phone if you are an AT&T subscriber. The query is, do you care possibly way?
