AT&T's 5G speeds may not be much faster than 4G LTE
« on: January 03, 2019, 05:59:59 »
If user tests are to be believed, the initial rollout of AT&T's 5G home internet network may be disappointing to most. Download and upload speeds aren't much better than those on 4G LTE. These tests raise concerns about the viability of 5G in its current state. Numerous problems associated with wavelength penetration and power draw may not be worth the cost if the performance increase for 5G is this marginal.

If this entire article is based on one users experience, that’s pretty ridiculous. Let’s see what happens with one hundred or a thousand users before criticizing

Isn't this the infamous AT&T's 5G E ? Or should I say LTE ?

I'd like to see how it compares with Verizon's 5G implementation in places like Sacramento.  If the results are similar, there could be some legs to this story.  If Verizon's a lot better, well, we know where to place the blame ...

Yep, it could be that false 5G they announce.
