Remember that faster mobile network that AT&T promised back in February? This is now a reality, at least in select parts of Austin, Texas, where AT&T just switched on what it’s calling “5G Evolution.”
According to AT&T, 5G Evolution “offers twice the speeds of [its] 4G LTE network.” Mind you, this is not true 5G. Actual 5G standards have yet to be finalized, so we won’t be seeing any real 5G networks before 2019 the earliest. Nevertheless, 5G Evolution is now here to “pave the way to the next generation of faster speeds,” as AT&T puts it.
