Reply to post: Why the comparison with wifi?

If there's 5G connectivity but no 5G devices on it, does it make a sound? Wait, no, that's not right

Why the comparison with wifi?

since it outclasses Wi-Fi in almost every way

Why the comparison? Wifi uses unlicensed spectrum which means you can set them yourself if you want. And with mimo they'll give you pretty good data rates.

With 5G you're essentially paying for the network management (and guaranteed spectrum for less congestion).
