Beware the 5G Hype: Wireless Rivals Fuel Confusion

AT&T, Verizon put their own spin on wireless standards to appear cutting-edge; some decry fake 5G

What’s 5G wireless service? On this, companies can agree: It’s what comes after 4G.
Asking for a more specific definition of the wireless industry’s brand new thing invites controversy. U.S. telecom companies have started slapping the 5G label on a smorgasbord of technologies, sowing confusion in an industry not known for its simplicity.

AT&T Inc. T -2.18% gained attention in recent days for putting “5GE” labels atop some customers’ Android smartphone screens. The E stands for “evolution,” a sign of the added bandwidth those phones can access as the company lays the groundwork for full-fledged 5G service.

AT&T finance chief John Stephens said the designation is appropriate because the company is upgrading cell towers with new equipment that will immediately improve wireless service quality. Those costly installations will eventually support full 5G service when the company updates antenna systems with newer software, a relatively inexpensive improvement.
