AT&T starts rolling out updates with fake ‘5G Evolution’ icon, just as promised

Saturday, January 5th, 2019

Most of you are probably familiar with AT&T's very misleading initiative to dub an enhanced version of 4G LTE "5G Evolution." As the top comment on that post predicted, the "5G E" icon has begun to roll out very quickly, already hitting both the LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy S8 active less than two weeks after the announcement.

The Galaxy S8 active's "5G E" icon is bundled with a December 2018 security patch.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL will get LTE band 48 in a future software update

Friday, January 4th, 2019

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL launched late last year with a robust but not comprehensive set of LTE bands. According to an FCC document, Google has asked regulators to approve a change to the Pixel's LTE complement. In the coming months, these phones could get LTE band 48, which is good for everyone.

Most LTE bands are licensed to specific carriers via FCC auctions. That's why you need to peruse LTE band listings to make sure your carrier is fully supported.

AT&T to start using a fake 5G indicator on LTE phones

Friday, December 21st, 2018

Technology is complicated enough for the average consumer, but carriers have a long and storied history of manipulating terminology to make it even harder to follow. Years ago, carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T jumped the gun on 4G by rebranding their 3G HSPA+ networks as "4G." Now, AT&T is doing the same thing as we move on toward 5G. After announcing 5G Evolution branding earlier this year, it's going to use a fake 5G icon on LTE phones.

T-Mobile might launch an expensive new international roaming plan on November 9th

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

International roaming used to be catastrophically expensive 100% of the time, but it's slightly less so now. T-Mobile helped pave the way for that when it started offering free 2G roaming in most countries. Leaked documents indicate that Tmo is planning a new add-on for its One plans that gives you unlimited international roaming, but it's spendy.

According to the leaked documents, T-Mobile will announce the new Global Plus plan option tomorrow (November 9th).

[Update: Now available] Samsung reveals new LTE-equipped Chromebook Plus V2

Friday, November 2nd, 2018

Earlier this year, Samsung revealed a refresh of its well-regarded 2017 Chromebook Plus. The new Chromebook Plus (V2) had an unadventurous name, but it had most of what made the original great, sadly sacrificing its incredible display for a faster Y-series Celeron (read: not one of the bad ones).

[Update: Certified] Razer says it will add Verizon support to the Razer Phone 2 ‘ASAP’

Friday, October 26th, 2018

The Razer Phone 2 is a predictable and modest improvement over the first-generation Razer Phone. It has a better 120Hz screen, wireless charging, and a glowing logo. It also has Verizon Wireless support, or rather, it will soon. The new Razer Phone has the necessary hardware for Verizon, but Razer is still working to make it functional.

The Razer Phone 2 does not have a CDMA radio, which Verizon phones still use as a backup for voice and 3G data when LTE isn't available.

5G is coming soon, but if you still have no idea what it is, or why it matters, then you're not alone.
