Sprint sues AT&T over the company’s use of ‘5G E,’ claims false advertising

AT&T’s calling its latest 4G LTE network “5G E” isn’t just drawing the ire of tech media and fans. It’s now drawing fire from Sprint in the form of a lawsuit.

In a lawsuit filed in New York’s Southern District, Sprint says it is taking the action as a result of “AT&T’s false advertising and deceptive acts” around 5G E.

Since late last year, AT&T has been touting its upgraded 4G LTE network as 5G E in TV ads, ramping up the running of the spots in 2019.

AT&T, Sprint alleges, “has sought to gain an unfair advantage in the race to 5G by embarking on a nationwide advertising campaign to deceive consumers into believing that its existing 4G LTE Advanced network is now a 5G network.”
