Some people will just complain about anything. Too much time on their hands.

I'm not looking forward to all the extra cell towers around this 5g requires to work. Yes they look to be quite small.

Dial111: the real conspiracy is that our government has conspired with the telcos to setup 5G towers all over the country to deliver these cancerous radio waves to kill us off, I can’t see the benefits myself of killing your citizens off,

 

It would solve the housing crisis, and reduce unemployment.

Higher frequencies are more difficult to penetrate into buildings, probably whey they need more towers.

Clearly by buildings you mean people and by harder you mean easier. I'm onto you, mr. Government




Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

While I think 5g will be cool and a nice option for the Telco's have for deployment in capacity constrained locations, I don't think it will be the revolution some people make it out to be.

 

It is very déjà vu 3G-2100MHz-esk - in the early days before WCDMA 800 and 950 people were disabling 3G on their phones because it dropped out so much due to the lousy range and the all new black spots that it created until cell tower density increased.

Yup, the usual horse poop about how it's set to transform our lives, blah blah.

Reality is we will see changes and improvements in high density places like festivals, concerts, stadiums and other events where the higher node density will offset the higher people density.
For day to day, it might be a bonus for commuters and people in the CBD of various cities. Beyond that I don't see much improvement in the short term, but I'd love to be proven wrong.
