Re: network speed to locations outside their networks

Agreed. Backhaul is crucial here, and it's going to be quite tricky to get good backhaul links to all of the new 5g cells.

It'll be interesting to watch the bitching & moaning amongst the early adopters as soon as the channels start to fill.

Is anyone talking about guaranteed contention levels? Guaranteed minimum speeds? And how would they manage it?
