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

Re: Bristol has a 5G testbed

The Surrey University 5G testbed showed remote driving of an Audi Q7 around the Guildford campus, over 5G from London in 2017. This and the live orchestra demo at Bristol show the main value/promise of 5G - low latency not high download speeds. I believe 5G aims at sub millisecond latency.
