The short answer is… no. AT&T did not just beat all the other carriers by over a year to be the first to bring 5G networks to the public. In fact, the final spec for 5G isn’t even ready yet. So what is this 5G Evolution that AT&T has announced?
According to the AT&T press release, customers who are using a Galaxy S8 and S8+ will take advantage of 5G Evolution, connecting at “twice the speeds of AT&T’s 4G LTE network.” Unfortunately, this is all a marketing hype by AT&T to get the 5G phrase out there and make waves. This isn’t a true 5G deployment, it doesn’t offer the speeds that true 5G is designed for, and again, 5G technology doesn’t even exist yet. AT&T says this is the ‘“foundation for our evolution to 5G while the 5G standards are being finalized” but you’d have to read their press release to know that. For most people, they will see the word 5G, and AT&T gets all the attention they want.
This is a similar move to what AT&T has done in the past, by being the first to claim a 4G network, while in fact their 4G was really HSPA+ technology built on the existing 3G network. Yes the speeds were improved, but it wasn’t true 4G.
In the end, 5G Evolution can be looked at as 4G LTE+. It offers more speed than 4G LTE, but that is it. There isn’t any new 5G technology in play here.
Available at 3Gstore,the NetComm NWL-25is a 4G LTE light industrial M2M router. The NWL-25 features a simple configuration, built in Verizon LTE modem, variable operating voltages, and tons of features, all while coming in at a price no other device on the market can touch. At just $199, the additon of IP Passthrough makes thisan excellent option for adding highly reliable cellular connectivity to existing non cellular equipment. With IP Passthrough and a static IP address from Verizon, you'll have remove access to non cellular equipment with next to no setup on the NetComm! Applications that are sensitive to double NAT will no longer have issues either.
The 3Gstore IP Power Switch is a simple product that automatically power-cycles any device when internet connectivity is lost. All you have to do is connect the included ethernet cable from the 3Gstore IP Switch to your router, and then connect the power cables of the devices that you want to be power-cycled when internet connectivity is lost, like your DSL modem and router.
3Gstore Remote Power Switch 2 Outlets - UIS522B
Easy to set up.
Does what it says on the box.
Thanks to my ISP (Rogers) I didn't have long to wait until it proved that it actually worked. I noticed my internet connections getting steadily worse one evening. Was going to check it out, but it was dinner time. By the time dinner was over and dishes done the internet connection was good. Checked the 3GStore Remote Power Switch logs - lo and behold - it had rebooted my cable modem. Wish I had got one of these years ago.

3Gstore Named Nextivity Partner of the Year 2016
In April 2016, 3Gstore reviewed and started selling the Cel-Fi Pro Signal Booster for AT&T. Unlike a traditional cellular booster, the Cel-Fi has no cables, no external antennas, and sets up in just a few minutes. We were immediately impressed with the quality and performance of this device, and so were our customers. In July 2016, the Cel-Fi DUO+ for Verizon was released. Again, 3Gstore and our customers were blown away by these devices and how easy there were to use. In September 2016, Nextivity Inc (the manufacturer of the Cel-Fi) announced 3Gstore as a Master Reseller for the Cel-Fi solution. Since partnering with Nextivity earlier in the year, 3Gstore started officially managing all online sales of the Cel-Fi family of products to consumers, resellers, and businesses, looking to solove their poor cellular coverage. In additon to featuring Cel-Fi products and accessories, visitors to Cel-Fi.com as well as Amazon are directed exclusively to 3Gstore to make a purchase.
In a September press release, Nextivity stated
"Since appointing 3Gstore as a Master Reseller, Nextivity has seen a 250% increase in revenues from sales of Cel-Fi PRO and Cel-Fi DUO+."
3Gstore has now received the Nextivity Partner of the Year award for 2016, recognizing outstanding partnership and growing online sales. We're proud to have earned this recognition from Nextivity, and we are excited to continue to support the Cel-Fi and other Nextivity solutions going forward.

3Gstore has been on YouTube since early 2009, posting hundreds of videos of product reviews, information, tips and tricks, and more. But how did 3Gstore distribute video before this? Many years prior, a 3Gstore infomercial was created for distribution on QVC. Originally recorded on VHS, this commercial was contracted for a 3 week run but a tragic issue with the USPS caused the video to be lost... until today. In the depths of the 3Gstore warehouse, a surviving VHS copy has been found and converted to a digital format. Making its long awaited debut, we present the 3Gstore IP Switch Infomercial.
