5G stands for: Fifth Gimmick To Charge You More Money For The Internet itself is the problem. It's old, outdated and overloaded. Fix that first and then offer us new, faster connections.

Knight fury, 21 Feb 2018What is the use of rolling out if there are no 5g phones availab... moreMaybe not phones, but laptops can connect to it.
You just need to plug in your 5G radio dongle into the USB port.

Its not mainstream, its for the engineers and testers.
And eventually it will be for the high-end/entrepreneurs.
Once 5G is early/ready... that's when the carriers will offer expensive plans, and high-end Snapdragon phones will add the feature. It's gonna take another 2-3 years for it to be remotely mainstream.

Just think in 2020 we *might have the Tokyo Olympics, a PS5, and a new 5G connection to watch 4K content on-mobile and to Online Game on it with acceptable latency.
