      I think you need to seriously look into the HEALTH DANGERS of 5G-
      believe me- you should be able to live without 5G- otherwise- you won't be living long.
      Are you aware that 5G is a military grade weapon USED FOR CROWD CONTROL!!!
      Wake UP BROTHER!!!

      Marques Brownlee I think there might be an impending health risk to having all these 5G nodes all over the place as well as affecting the efficiency of emergency responses could be hampered if anyone of these nodes are affected by walls, trees or becomes faulty that could be a potential disaster waiting to happen.

              Pretty damn irresponsible to release technology which affects aren't confirmed yet. If it reacts that way to water and trees, you can only imagine what it can do to a human.

              Great dig at AT&t!
              So your thought is it's not worth it to buy a $1,600 phone right now for the 5G Network.
              Wait, how much did your phone cost you?

                Good post MB. Appreciate the explanation of higher frequency waves, their limitations and the “blanket a city with towers” solution. I didn’t know any of that before. Question: so faster is better for sure, and the interconnected autonomous car idea seems like a real idea for the future, but if I was going to do remote surgery in another country wouldn’t I just use wifi? I mean, I’m going to have a super expensive surgery robot, so I’d likely have WiFi too, right? I’m trying to better capture the profound impacts of 5G other than faster download speeds for YouTube, VR, etc.

                      Wish you talked about how 5g isn’t worth the health sacrifice and harmful effects on the human body. We are still organic beings and we should people value ours brains a little higher then our download speeds. WE DONT WANT/NEED 5G. China can keep it along with google.

                        Do you have literally a single comment on the possible health ramifications on this level of radiation? I get it, you’re at the cutting edge of tech and that’s your job, but it seems outrageous to just blindly accept all of the criticism just because of that. In fact it’s irresponsible. We should be demanding more from tech. Innovation but absolutely not at the determent of the general public. It’s the lack of this demand and criticism that has led to these pointless incremental iPhone updates and social media no longer a tool for the creator and the public but a tool for the advertisers.

                        You can have a real impact on all of this man, not us. You.

                              This Sounds hazardous , Not good standard for automatic driven cars on 5GAA, with such disconnected speed... Big no for emergency 5G mobile medical Operations. Sounds like Marketing hype to sell it with new name with same old game.

                                    5G is to data connectivity what 8k currently is to consumer television. Impressive, but with little infrastructure and supporting hardware to enable it to thrive.
                                    But once all that is ironed out, maybe in the next 10 years, both will work very well together. 5G will help 8k (and 16k) reach the masses.
                                    As a health professional my only fear is what impact does a high concentration of signal transmitters have on human health.

                                        The phone using more power for 5G implies the base station does too, although the base station might be better at beam forming. In the UK 4G uses more energy than the UK aviation sector. How much power will 5G need? For reference, a 4G base station antenna is rated at 300W per channel, with 12 channels per base station.
