AT&T promise to replace it general '5G E'LTE indicator on Android phones

Have you enjoyed 4G network on your device? The speed offered by your smartphone contribute a lot to surfing internet most especially when downloading stuffs like video, music and heavy file. 
I'm sure not everyone has enjoy 4G network due to less places it covers, recently we have Airtel launching 4G network for folks to enjoy not excluding other network providers. 

Currently AT&T company already has it 5G network working and has expanded to over hundreds of markets. According to report made by the company that it'll be making a change to select Android phones to highlight that 5G Evolution coverage.

AT&T company says starting from next year it will change the "LTE" indicator on select Android phones to "5G E" in markets where 5G Evolution service is available. "Initially we’ll roll this out on a handful of devices, with more devices showing the indicator in spring 2019," AT&T confirmed to FierceWireless.

The latest report says that 5G Evolution service is not actually 5G, but is instead a collection of advanced 4G LTE network technologies like 4x4 MIMO, 256 QAM, and carrier aggregation. These technologies help to boost download speeds on compatible devices. AT&T says that 5G Evolution will be available in more than 400 markets by the end of 2018.

We saw something similar when a 3G network technology called HSPA+ began rolling out and some carriers changed the network indicator on phones to display HSPA+ as "4G". While 5G Evolution coverage should offer faster speeds than 4G LTE, it's not technically 5G, but some folks who see this "5G E" indicator may think that they've suddenly got 5G. AT&T's real 5G is called "5G+" and is currently available in parts of 12 markets, and the only device that can access it is the Netgear Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot.

Gradually 5G is taking over the space as we'll start seeing signal depending on the location. Are you ready to switch to 5G network?.
