    5g on all prepaid plans

    I saw this post on Reddit, someone is getting 5g on a plan that isn't the Unlimited Plus plan.
    https://old.reddit.com/r/ATT/comment...go/prepaid_5g/
    Can someone verfiy that 5g is now on all prepaid plans, I am thinking of switching to the 15Gb plan, thanks.
    I have a Pixel 4a5g, so I am guessing native voicemail (in the phone app itself) and wifi calling will work on this plan.

    Thanks all.

    Recently switched to AT&T prepaid and using Pixel 4a5G. I can confirm that it shows 5GE when I'm using mobile data and WiFi calling works.

    At&t's use of the term 5Ge is not true 5G and never has been. They did the same thing with the rollout of their 4G networks which was actually nothing more than 3.5 G using its older GSM networks. The phone may be 5G compatible, but the network indicator 5Ge is a lie, more like 4.5G instead.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    Agreed, that's the reason I said it "shows" 5G, it is really bad on AT&T's part to do such thing.
