Sprint sues AT&T over fake 5G logo

Sprint sues AT&T over fake 5G logo

Sprint's response, however, is far more serious, as it's brought a lawsuit against AT&T with that 5G E branding at the center of it.

The test was conducted in the field using a mobile form factor test device, and AT&T told FierceWireless that it plans to roll out this network upgrade across its network as quickly as possible, enabling its early adopters to be some of the first in the U.S.to start benefiting from the performance enhancements these upgrades will enable "in the near future". AT&T has simply added some technology that can potentially deliver speeds slightly faster than LTE.

"We will fight this lawsuit while continuing to deploy 5G Evolution in addition to standards-based mobile 5G".

Smartphones running on both Android and Apple's iOS platforms are sporting "5G E" for AT&T customers, even though those phones are not equipped to support 5G. Moreover, 43 recent of consumers believed if they were to purchase an AT&T phone today that it would provide 5G service.

Cedit: AT&T "By making the false claim that it is offering a 5G wireless network where it offers only a 4G LTE Advanced network, AT&T is attempting to secure an unfair advantage in the saturated wireless market", the lawsuit filed Friday (Feb. 8) in U.S. District Court in NY alleges.

AT&T is being taken to task for what some are calling its "fake 5G" technology.

AT&T's product is "nothing more than" advanced LTE, or an advanced version of what the industry calls 4G Long Term Evolution technology, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of NY. Sprint will have to reconcile its arguments to the FCC that it can not deploy a widespread 5G network without T-Mobile while simultaneously claiming in this suit to be launching 'legitimate 5G technology imminently, ' " AT&T said.

While 4G LTE Advanced is certainly more capable than standard LTE, it isn't 5G in any real sense.

Sprint said it is spending billions of dollars to roll out a "true" 5G network, starting in nine cities this year, including NY.

AT&T has employed numerous deceptive tactics to mislead consumers into believing that it now offers a coveted and highly anticipated fifth-generation wireless network, known as 5G. "We understand why our competitors don't like what we are doing, but our customers love it", AT&T said in a statement, describing its 5GE network as "an evolutionary step to standards-based 5G". The carrier is now in the process of trying to merge with rival T-Mobile.

AT&T claims the "E" in 5G E stands for "evolution", implying that the company is, at some point in the future, going to implement the next wave of wireless service.

"AT&T's "5G E" network is not, in fact, a 5G wireless network, nor does AT&T sell a single 5G-enabled mobile phone or tablet", Sprint wrote.

A January report by The Wall Street Journal had noted complaints by Verizon and T-Mobile about AT&T's 5G E claims, though it failed to mention any objections by Sprint specifically. AT&T offers standards-based 5G in parts of 12 cities, but its first 5G device for sale is a mobile hotspot rather than a phone. It's 100% misleading garbage, that AT&T is fully aware of.

Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile agree. Customers want and deserve to know when they are getting better speeds.

Sprint said that a survey showed 54 percent of AT&T's consumers believed their "5G E" network is the same as or better than a 5G network.
