"Fixed wireless is the "killer app" for 5G"

I suppose, in a roundabout way. Existing, mature technologies exist to do high-speed fixed wireless (without requiring massive subsidies to the telecoms), so it's not really that part.

What 5G really brings is the ability to service more endpoints. In very congested areas, cell providers have been hitting this limit for a long time now.
