    Shhh, reduced sales to the conspiracy numpties might mean the price plummets and we get a bargain!

    Yes,

    Don't be like Bagpuss, who purchased a Samsung A90 5G phone in November 2019, on the promise that 5G would be available in his town in just a month or so, only for Three to go back on their word and delay the rollout, quickly followed by a Pandemic, halting any possibility of any further rollout until God knows when.

    ..7mths after purchase, still no 5G.

    Yes, indeed, when it comes to mythical 5G, Don't be like Bagpuss.

    I'm doing the opposite. My S8 will last until 5G is in my city or actively being deployed.

    My S8 is feeling worse for wear. I dropped it (again) and finally cracked the screen. Given how many times it has gone a flying, that's not bad going. I popped some superglue in the cracks and it has stopped them spreading out and you now hardly notice it during use.

    I won't be replacing it unless I absolutely have to. I'm not spending any money on a 4G phone and I'm not buying a 5G phone until the tech is available for use. I might as well let it mature, let the price drop further and let the coronavirus fester in all those using 5G and get cooked by Bill Gates' RFID chips! HAHAHAHAHAAAAaaaaaaaa

    Someone kill me.

    It's going to take longer - a lot of the 5G equipment was going to be supplied by Huawei. But under US pressure,that probably won't happen,so it will probably take longer,especially if the network providers will lose money,if they change providers.

    Never listen to claims from an ISP. 4 years ago I was told a new internet tower was being put in "in a couple months". Year later, "yeah it's this summer", year later, "yeah it'll be up soon", i've moved and the tower is STILL not up but "only a couple months" left... sure.

    Realistically there are few benefits from 5G. 99% of the time you're waiting for data to load is not because of speed issues, it's because of connection issues. 5G is a SHORTER wavelength so it takes more energy, ie less range.
