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

Re: Wrong

Was going to post something similar, but points are covered mostly.

The UK broadband market may be healthier than in the US but we still have real infrastructure problems, and unless the old cable companies that merged into Virgin built into a given area, your choices are basically limited to BT, companies leasing BT’s wires, something satellite based or something using the mobile phone networks with massive civils costs blocking anyone re-cabling. 5G has the chance to make a real difference in some places.
