Sprint blasts AT&T for using ‘fake 5G’ in full-page New York Times ad

AT&T 5G

As exciting as the roll out of 5G is, the reality is that most consumers will have to wait quite a while before they find themselves in an area with 5G support. T-Mobile, as a quick example, recently announced that its 5G service won’t launch until the latter half of 2019.
