              if they still get 2mbps then 5g in india is useless. its just for showoff in notification bar🤣🤣🤣

That is the theoretical speed. Practical speeds are lower. Most people most of the time get speeds lower than the theoretical speed.

                    Anonymous, 03 Aug 2022I don't believe 5G works in inside building.700,800,900 Mhz can work deep inside buildings I think.

                      I wish all this manufacturers think for the rest of the places that can't even get a stable connection. I wish they can think about it so everybody can enjoy the fast and reliable connections.

The network providers make a big splash about their latest and greatest option but it's only available in a tiny number of areas. For now I'd be content to have consistent high quality 4G service.

                            Airtel launching 5g and here I'm still waiting for State owned BSNL to launch 4g in my area.

                              3G and 4G had arrived in India before 2G and 3G respectively were properly working. Now when 4G network is not available indoor and even outdoor the speed of 4G is equal to which 3G was giving. I wonder what 5G will do. I doubt it can surpass 3G speed. Basically it will be 3G in the name of 5G with poor network coverage.
