Mobile adds more phone subscribers than expected in fourth quarter

AT&T is pretending like 5G is already here – and misleading users Verizon, With Its Own Non-Standards 5G, Warns Industry to be...

Instead, AT&T wants to ride the 5G hype train of 2019 harder than most and has resorted to basically lying to its customers in this manner. The phones are not actually connected to a new 5G network-5G E stands for 5G Evolution, a rebranding of the faster portions of LTE.

The results suggest it'll be tough for AT&T and T-Mobile's planned merger partner Sprint to hit their current estimates for subscriber growth in a mature wireless market that has seen little new-customer growth overall.

T-Mobile said it added 7 million net subscribers for 2018 and delivered strong additions in the fourth quarter of 2.4 million. Now, rivals like Verizon and T-Mobile are both getting in on the action as well, hammering the company for its decision. Verizon's average download speed in eight major cities was 53.3Mbps, well ahead of AT&T's 37.1Mbps, according to Tom's Guide measurements.

"What we're trying to do is two things".

Donovan said the 5G E icon will be used in 400 markets across the United States where AT&T has deployed advanced LTE technologies.

Even though real 5G isn't ready for smartphones yet, Donovan gloated that "everyone within the industry who competes with us didn't like the fact that the night before last, overnight the top of your phone now shows a 5G E".

While on the topic of the company's 5G network, a new report by VentureBeat has revealed that AT&T will begin deploying its 5G network across the entire country in the second half of this year with the goal of having nationwide coverage by early next year.

Again, it's not 5G, and other networks have the same upgrades. Regardless of the aesthetic change, AT&T phones are not running on a 5G network.

"5G Evolution", or 5G E, is not true 5G.
