When We Say 5G, It Is Fake -- AT&T! Industry Takes AT&T To The Task.

Verizon declared in a nicely written letter;
That’s why we’re calling on the broad wireless industry to commit to labeling something 5G only if new device hardware is connecting to the network using new radio technology to deliver new capabilities.
