If you're not sold on the benefits of 5G, Ericsson suggests you keep an eye on gaming, home broadband


Re: well, that's wildly unconvincing

Actually it's much much much more cheaper for a $TELCO to put some 5G Antenna on top of a pylon to provide 5G Fixed Wireless, than lay the kilometers of fiber needed to reach your home.

The point is that they only need to lay the fiber to the equipments attached to the pylon and they can serve 5G fixed broadband to 50+ houses... That's one single fiber to lay ( and usually it's already there, it's just an upgrade of the equipment )... instead of 50+ that needs to be put on top of poles or underground.

Now it's clear that if you already have Fiber at hand in your neighbourhood , 5G Fixed Broadband is pointless.
