No Huawei, America: Samsung scores $6.6bn for 5G at US giant Verizon


Re: What about UK ?

Having worked on 3, 4 and now 5G for the last 20 years, I pay no attention to the hype. Headline grabbing data rates are probably theoretical numbers, at the physical layer, and give one mobile the entire cell capacity with perfect transmission. In practice, user experience is about 60-70% of those numbers due to protocol overheads and variability in radio.
