I’m not sure why anyone needs a 5G.

For the speed. At least if they bother to put up a tower close enough.

It blows the socks off of 4G. The part of the RF spectrum it is in is significantly higher frequency than the 4G networks.

The down side is, the range is a lot shorter, which is a problem in rural areas. It's great in high density areas where people really don't need it because they can get high speed optical fiber straight into their high rise apartment.

So it will probably widen the digital gap between the haves and have-nots.

And contrary to what the conspiracy people think, 5G does NOT spread Covid-19.

You must be very rich? I an still using my 3G smart phone. It gets me all over the web but will stop at the end if the year when Verizon discontinues 3G wires in OR. I got a 4G on QVC but my 2 appointments with phone tutors went the way of just about everything when the Virus showed up.

I have consumer celleular flip fone, only cost me $40.

But 5G can send radio beams into your head to read your thoughts.  Where do they come with this stuff?

Nice. Was 4g mandatory when you got it?

Yes it was, there's no 3G here anymore, if there is, it's hard to find.

Oh, that's right. I remember another AZ woman here being in the same I am.

They get it by only talking to each other.

Also climbing a 5G tower might cook the virus, just like food is cooked in a microwave oven.
