T-Mobile, though, isn't the only AT&T rival that's offered commentary.
Verizon, in a step befitting its highly serious image -- even when it tries to be funny in ads, it's a little gauche -- posted a somber message from its CTO Kyle Malady.
Sounding almost Churchillian, Malady wrote: "The potential for 5G is awesome, but the potential to over-hype and under-deliver on the 5G promise is a temptation that the wireless industry must resist."
Because it's not true? Well, yes.
Malady continued: "If network providers, equipment manufacturers, handset makers, app developers and others in the wireless ecosystem engage in behavior designed to purposefully confuse consumers, public officials and the investment community about what 5G really is, we risk alienating the very people we want most to join in developing and harnessing this exciting new technology."
He does have a point. People do get bothered by manifest mendacity. Although, these days, perhaps not as much as they should.
