    5G rollout - coming to a metro area near you soon. maybe. we hope.

    In tests, the 5G often switched off due to summer heat, leaving our columnist to cool the devices with ice packs or air conditioners

    The article is probably behind a paywall, so watch her video here:

    For those that have never used speedtest.net, the above shows her 5G speed of 1.5gbps !!! that's 1.5x what I get with fiber right now! Amazing.
