Piece of crap article doesn't answer the one and only question anyone would have - "oh yeah?  How fast is 5G then?"

The answer is apparently 100 Mbps "in metropolitan areas" but the main goal is more aggregate bandwidth and simultaneous connections.

At 15GHz that is going to need an awful lot of towers and will have almost zero penetration through walls.

The whole point of ditching analogue TV was to free up the sub 1GHz band so there was better signal in dense cities and less infrastructure costs which would help roll out across rural areas.

To me it isn't End to End 5G until the signalling is done at frequencies which are actually usable,

That was a very uninformative article. Thanks, Subby 👍.

CSB we already have 5g gigabit wireless that has test benched around the 900Mbps mark in Australia. Verrry limited release sites but doable.

That's pretty easy to do on an island. Try it in a big country and get back to me.

Sweden is 1500 kilometers long. Oz is 3800km wide. What the f*ck are you gibbering about, man?!?

So we've learned that the US is bigger than Europe and we shouldn't put up with their shiat.  (Also Australia has a few more people than New York State.)

I'm serious. It's easier. Maybe the alps would get in the way or something, but it's got to be easier than testing end-to-end 5G in a big place like America or whatever.
