AT&T will turn on its 5G network this Friday

18 December 2018
The network will go live in 12 cities, but AT&T is only talking to businesses now for a trial period. The first 5G data plan sounds pretty pricey.

"first data plan will offer 15GB for $70 a month"
PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE by GayT&T to LOCK users in the contract to suck more "blood" from subscribers to feed the management's coffers$$ lavish lifestyle. This is all part of NWO, 1984 Orwellian Society & UN Agenda 2030. Wonder if these new plans will possibly include "spying" from NSA (of course it WILL NEVER be listed in the contract) & arrest / sue people without trial if people say / do / think "wrong" things on their 5G smartphones??

Well, this looks destined to immediately fail. If 5G is as fast as the hype, 15GB per month is about 170 seconds of full-speed use per month. It's an embarrassing offering.

radiation kills people.. and that is not a lie that's true besides last night I was reading an article published on red bull web page about 5g and side effected on humans health .. what's is sad is that this is a billionaire business and hospitals will get more from us ... cancer is killing children around the world im shock seen too many little girls and boys taking radio therapy or chemotherapy ... that's too bad ...

Seen an episode on Person Of Interest, where 5G have people cancer and headaches. To be fair, LTE works just fine for me! Downloads are fast specially for in the go.

Still using 3g in Bosnia and herzegovina...

(even sounds the same)

As per usual, it takes about 3-6 years for new wireless technology to roll-out effectively.
So I wouldn't go around paying extra for a 5G handset and 5G connection in 2019... maybe in 2022 with the Samsung Galaxy S14.

Nobody knows, but I tend to thing it's harmful. Humans use a lot of things (substances, radios) that kill or harm insects and label them as safe for humans, but I guess if it kills a bug or makes it nervous system to go haywire, it can affect a human too over time, only if just for a bit. And we have a bad history of adopting a lot if bad things, lead paint in toys, to give just an example. We won't have the time to see the effects before 5G will have spread everywhere, only more isolated rural areas will be free of it and we'll be able to make a comparison. Anyway, I think 4G is enough for on the go, I say keep the very high speed on cable, at home.

ProJames, 18 Dec 2018If that were true, you'd already be dead because of all your dev... moreYou have to wonder if Samsung have shot themselves in the foot.

This article states that there will be essentially 2 supplementary 5G that a network can use.

It seems odd to invest in the flagship S10 when it will only utilise one.

Oneplus 6T states there could be a $150 price hike due to 5G by 2020 5G implementation will be gathering pace, the S11 launching with both

I would rather wait 6 months for a 5G phone than invest in half a 5G phone

On that note if any 2019 iPhones come out half of 5G then that is a marketing choice

4G ready meant you bought your phone awaiting 4G LTE implementation especially if bought sim free. Hopefully Samsung will rectify this before launch

4G LTE will be labelled 5G Evolution and real 5G as 5G+, those who are unaware of this will think they are using some enhanced version 5G thats some nice misleading so someone raises this issue

It wont be too long before networks are offering "5G at no extra cost"

This is going to be extremely harmful to our health. Buckle up, fellas.

4G can never be 5G no matter how advanced it is.
