AT&T is launching their 5G cellular network in 10 U.S. cities on Friday. What’s that you say? You thought they had already launched their “5G E” network earlier this year? Nah, that was just a mixture of enhanced LTE and marketing, they did the same thing with 4G a few years back.
AT&T continues to use the misleading “5G E” on users’ phones, despite a lawsuit, and a full page ad posted to draw attention to the carrier’s sleight of cellular hand. However, today’s launch is of the real thing, actual 5G.
The OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren 5G (yes, this is a really long name) is the first 5G phone on T-Mobile anyone should care about. And, I would argue, it’s the first 5G phone in America anyone should consider buying, because it’s actually just a really great phone you otherwise can’t get here. It’s also the very first phone in the US that can use a 5G network that will actually be available to most Americans: T-Mobile’s 600MHz 5G covers over 200 million people, meaning you’re more likely than not inside that coverage map.

T-Mobile is going all-in on the 600 MHz 5G spectrum after turning on its 5G network in areas of the US that should give over 200 million people access to superfast data speeds.
Although 5G is often touted for being newer, faster, and more secure than 4G, a team of security researchers from the University of Iowa and Purdue University has flipped the last bit of that marketing message on its head by discovering almost a dozen new 5G vulnerabilities. As a result of these breaches, they were able to carry out some nasty attacks like location tracking, broadcasting of false emergency alerts, and severing the 5G connection of a phone entirely from the network.
