Would love to know what 5G stuff is going to cost. When 4G equipment appeared it was pretty pricey.

Shame, poor ISPs and their limited spectrum. I'll start caring the day their backhauls and international bandwidth allow me to maintain speeds during peak times. If magically they had all the spectrum in the world with full 5G networks tomorrow we in reality wouldn't see anything close to those speeds because they don't have the bandwidth.

Rain couldn't even do a public sub 1Gbps speed test on demo 5G kit yet even though multiple speed test servers in NAP can handle multi Gbps speed tests...

They love to brag about the speed of 5G, which is theoretically true, but terribly unrealistic for all but the select few. There is no way on God's good earth will we ever see speeds approaching that of what they tout for the next 20 years. Maybe even longer.
