Europe to straggle Japan, China, US and Korea in 5G adoption stakes


Re: Lag Behind?

"So what is 5G going to give me that a decent 4G signal wold give. Please don't say downloading a movie in seconds. "

In your home? You won't even be able to download a movie in seconds. That speed requires using the millimeter band, which won't penetrate most walls, thick foliage, rain, etc. If you haven't set up a suitable antenna for it outside your home, you're going to be using the Khz frequencies, which aren't substantially faster than what 4G gives you.
