Rip and replace is such a long Huawei to go, UK telcos plead, citing 'blackouts' and 'billion pound' costs: Are Vodafone and BT playing 'Project Fear'?

"because having a 5G mast hanging of the end of 1 fibre is less hassle than installing many FTTP connections."

Yea, one *shared* connection to anyone hanging nearby.

Also that mast won't have anything more than 10Gbps connection anyway (because of money) and that's also shared to all 5G users. Put 100 users and there's not much bandwith even in theory.

I see 5G as major BS which is used to sell new phones. No more, no less.

That fibre on the other hand is 10Gbps *to every user*. Of course ISP will charge arm and leg for that, but it's still 100* more bandwith than a shared 5G connection.
