I’ll take a decent 4G service. Was told to use WI-FI for calling and internet on my phone. My last two homes get 3G at best. Best part is I work from home.

  1. There is absolutely5 no market for it given the efficacy and cost as compared to competitive options.
  1. There has never been a serious business case showing 5G turning on and 4G and FiOS turning off.

5G is no different at this point. Once again the market has been ceded to T-Mobile..
