AT&T 5G lies. AT&T Exec Defends '5GE' Amidst Backlash - Tom's Guide - What is it?
There is a lot of confusion. AT&T had announced that 5GE was available. Well it turns out they are testing it in 12 cities. But lets first define what 5G and 5GE is. First it is not from the WiFI systems that had 2.4 GHZ or 5 GHZWiFi. This was a frequency on WiFi. 2.4 was slower than 5 but could carry more information.
5G or 5GE is the "SERVICE" to be used by Cell carriers, There was 3G and 4G, and now soon to be 5GE. It is supposed to allow multi-megabit speeds and unlimited throughput. So to use it you will require a cell signal, that is 5GE and devices that support it. Ones that say they do not now will require updates.
Like we said it is only in test areas now. It will be fast and it will be able to handle streaming of videos. But it will also require a new device. We will discuss this as more information and dates are available.
