    I would definitely be interested in 5G home internet if I couldn’t get the likes of FiOS and Xfinity that’s a different story. I can get FiOS or Xfinity so I’m not too interested in 5G.

    Once again it's not just about speed. Also how long is your "just fine" speed goign to last if Verizon just keeps using just LTE?

    You maybe be fine with you plan but if the were better you wouldn't want that?

    I was surprised to see how well 39 GHz penetrates glass. Sitting in my car, tower was roughly 400 ft away.

    "37 GHz" is part of the 39 GHz band

    The point is for me Iím not concerned about it because like I said how much speed do I need for my iPhone 12. Give me letís say a consistent 7-10 Mbps all day and everywhere on my iPhone 12 thatís all I need. All I want is letís say be able to stream YouTube TV with no problem when Iím on my smartphone.

    And like I said I would want that if it had to do with home internet and didnít have access to wired home internet.

    Well most people need more than that. Also not sure what's the point of getting an iPhone 12 if that's all you need. Anyway even ithat's all Verizon was concerned about was providing a max of 10 Mbps in some areas their current spectrum would allow true unlimited data at that speed but in a lot of other areas no sot much

    I really do understand what you say when all you really need is 10 Mbps of an LTE connection and you can do pretty much anything streaming wise (minus 4K) with no buffering. I know for me doing things like web browsing and streaming the difference between a mmWave and a LTE connection isnít huge but it is slightly noticeable (mainly because of the lower latency which causes web pages to respond slightly quicker). Now if If Iím in a highly congested area the difference is night and day. In one area near me congestion can be so bad on a particular street that LTE speeds can be less than 1 Mbps but low band 5G still hits 8-10 Mbps with no issues giving me a constant experience. So with low band 5G you wonít see those blazing speeds but you will see a more consistent experience.

    The issue is not as much now but more in the future. Use of data over cellular (both LTE and 5G) had exploded over the years and will only continue to increase. With low band 5G you wonít see the big speed increases but you will get capacity increases giving more people the ability to get that 10Mbps of speed.

    Probably not, it wasnít UWB

    60 mph on the highway through a major downtown area. I was surprised that it held on long enough for a speed test!

    Ok I get that and your point is definitely Ďconvincingí. However I would prefer a solid 5G nationwide network just like a solid LTE network vs a network mm wave network.

    I would assume a nationwide 5G network would help with congestion vs mm wave?

    That's really good to see. It held for roughly 2200 feet, assuming a speed test takes 25 seconds and 60 mph is 88 ft/s. Still early days for mmW but that kinda demonstrates it's not just for parking lots.

    Sounds about right . A friend of mine in NYC was able to pull over a gig at the .4 mile mark. It was LOS though but still thatís impressive . Some equipment can push more range than others
