Anyone else here have 5G E network on their cell network?
Just noticed recently depending on where I'm at, it'll switch between LTE and 5G E. Haven't noticed a significant difference, probably because I don't have a 5G phone (I have an iPhone XR).

5G E is basically 4G speedwise. AT&T is doing what they did with 3G HSPA+ and calling it 4G even tho it isn't.

I've heard some reports that it's slower than LTE.

It's hilarious that people think they are actually getting 5G or that it's even available right now but AT&T did the same thing with the 4G rollout and most people bought it.

While we're on this subject, here's a map of where 5g is available in the US. We got a long way to go.

5G-E is 4G LAA which with a 4CC phone can provide 1Gb OTA which fools people into thinking its 5G.

There are mmWave sites going up, but the range is short and requires a 5G modem, to begin with.

I was in Austin recently and their “5G E” is slower than my LTE in Baton Rouge.

re: Anyone else here have 5G E network on their cell network?
My phone switched to saying 5E sometime last year. Located in Cenla. Not sure if I have seen a difference or not other than my phone saying it. I've read that some phones/networks will say 5E but is it isn't.

If I didn't already know you worked in the industry, I would have thought you were just making shite up in that post.

I'm just waiting on the in-home 5G service that costs the same as normal home internet.

The carriers are experimenting with this atm.

Line of Sight and signal strength are still significant issues.

Intel has completely removed itself from the 5G Modem game after Apple and Qualcomm come to a cease-fire.

Looks like a year or so worth of testing went down the drain.

re: Anyone else here have 5G E network on their cell network?
5G E = LTE + some added features

Other service providers are laughing at ATT for calling it 5G.

It's still only about 40Mbps, while real 5G is more than a gigabit per second.

I was in Morgan City last weekend of all places and my Galaxy S10 switched to 5Ge and it seemed slower than my 4Glte in BR.
