Reports: AT&T, Sprint Settle Lawsuit Over Misleading 5G E Logo

AT&T Inc. (T) and Sprint corp. (S) settled a lawsuit over AT&T's "5G Evolution" branding, which Sprint claimed was misleading customers into believing its 4G LTE network was a full-fledged 5G network, according to media reports.

Sprint had sued AT&T claiming the carrier used "numerous deceptive tactics to mislead consumers" with the 5G E branding.

The 5G E logo popped on phones in upgraded parts of AT&T's LTE network. However, the phones were not actually connected to a 5G network. This led to Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile calling it as "fake 5G" and led to Sprint suing AT&T for misleading consumers.
