"That fibre on the other hand is 10Gbps *to every user*"

"Also that mast won't have anything more than 10Gbps connection anyway "

The fibres to the mast, and the fibres to the premises terminate in the same place - at the exchange. There isn't going to be enough back haul there for 10Gbps per user either way. That's unless you're leasing the whole line, and paying accordingly.

Complaining about contention for one, but conveniently ignoring it for the other, just makes you look ignorant. Fibre will always be faster point to point, but that doesn't matter if the bottle neck is somewhere else.

"I see 5G as major BS which is used to sell new phones."

Something can be both useful and require marketing. Just look at how wifi has changed over the years. Electric cars? Smartphones? Twas ever thus.
