Re: I dont really understand why i need 5g at all
On 4G in the UK, I get about 30Mbps down.
I don't see that my phone needs for than that for the immediate future. It's enough to stream HD Netflix, etc. without feeling choking to anything else you might want to do (browsing, downloads, working on an online office suite, etc.).
4G in other countries, properly deployed, is capable of much more - 150Mbps isn't at all unusual, even in rural areas. Hence, I can't see any need to move on.
I honestly think I'd rather stick with a cellular network who come out and say "We're not going to waste billions of your money on 5G licencing and compatibility... we'll invest it in our 4G network instead to get greater capacity and speeds for you".
It cost £2.3bn to buy the 4G licences. 5G has only take £1.3bn so far.
I think I'd much rather they spent those billions on more towers and even rural connectivity that I would probably never use, than jumping on the bandwagon.
Bear in mind... I live my entire online life via 4G... a smartphone and a 4G Wifi router. I literally don't have any other Internet connection at all. Yet I use it for all my entertainment, gaming, streaming, downloading, browsing, telephony, etc.
