[$$] Sprint Accuses AT&T of False Advertising of 5G Service

Sprint Corp. has sued AT&T Inc. over a branding campaign that it says falsely tells customers they are receiving 5G service on their smartphones, escalating marketing wars between carriers over the next generation of wireless networks. AT&T in recent weeks has begun putting a “5GE” label on some customers’ smartphone screens to indicate they are receiving higher-bandwidth service, a precursor to its rollout of faster, 5G service. Sprint alleges in the suit filed Thursday that AT&T is deceiving customers into thinking their 4G LTE wireless service is in fact 5G.
