Sprint is Suing AT&T Over "5GE" Rebrand

AT&T’s competitors have taken note of the company’s “5G Evolution” branding on phones and networks using 4G LTE Advanced Technology, but it hasn’t gone beyond crafty tweets or company blog posts –until now. Sprint recently filed a lawsuit in federal court, seeking an injunction to stop AT&T from using 5GE tags on its devices or advertising. In Sprint’s legal complaint , the company said it surveyed customers and found 54 percent of them believed AT&T’s “5GE” is as fast as, or faster than, actual 5G.

The company currently offers prepaid services, but Moncrief plans to expand in the coming years. Tesix Wireless offers four phone plans ranging from $25 to $60 per month.
