5G vs. 5G E vs. 5GHz: What's the Difference?
Is your Wi-Fi 5G? How about your AT&T phone? Doesn't 5G require new cell towers, like, everywhere? No, no, and no. Confusing branding and marketing have been combining several similar terms, in some cases innocently and in some cases on purpose. Let's start by quickly answering some questions you might have: Your home router has 5GHz Wi-Fi. Your router isn't 5G cellular, the new system wireless carriers are installing now. "5G E," which will appear in your 4G AT&T phone's status bar soon, also isn't 5G cellular.

Okay, now let's explain what 5G, 5G E, and 5GHz Wi-Fi have to do with each other.
