Re: There goes international roaming

I get that this harks back to the days when phones had to be dual/tri band for roaming, and marketed as such since it was a big deal. But...

Is it really that difficult for phone manufacturers to develop phones that work across all available 5g bands? And if not, wouldn't 5g phones still support 4g and fall back to that if 5g isn't available on a band they support?
