Over 600Mbps download speeds means you can download a whole season of 4K movie series in a few seconds.
The comparison to 4G shows you how much time you could save. Will fibre increase speeds to compete? 2000 Mbps Fibre connection would be nice. :)

You wanting 5g so desperately, read the real life experiences of it in Murica. At least 3g and 4g can penetrate a brick wall.

Ignore all those looney people complaining about 5G. The reason why they are sick is that they don't eat meat.

What's everyone's take on 5g frying your brains and that 5g was actually used in warfare? Pretty sure cancer will become much more common now.

5G is no different from 4G except for the protocol and the bandwidth it uses.
It's the frequency that is the danger and because of the lay of the land in SA, any tansmissions above say 5 Ghz will not work too well because of the distance it needs to travel.
High speed 5G requires large bandwidth and that is only available in 20+ Ghz region and that could be dangerous depending on the power levels.
Then on the other hand it might do some good to fry a few brains in SA :)
