Once again Apple is still behind. iPhones are not compatible yet!!
“5G will change the way we live, work and enjoy entertainment,”
They always say that and yet you can hardly notice any improvement. People should be held accountable for false promises like in any other fields.
This is the real deal, or at least the start.
The 3GPP recently standardized (non-standalone) "NR", or "New Radio" as the "true" 5G Standard.
(True standard as in: 5G is NR, 4G is LTE, 3G is HSPA, etc...)
Standalone NR is set to be standardized in the second half of 2018.
I started writing up a difference between standalone and non-standalone NR, but then realized it was likely a bit too technical.
Here's a very good explanation (SRC: https://www.eetimes.com/author.asp?section_id=36&doc_id=1331434):
Not true 5G but renamed LTE+
Switch to AT&T. They have already shutdown their 2G network (EDGE) and their network footprint is all HSDPA/HSUPA.
Some areas are HSPA+ and large suburbs and urban areas are now LTE.
Is that why they have to charge more than $5 buck per month for the damn Apple Watch to work?
Because ATT is also my home internet and my DirecTV. So, everything is linked. There are discounts and promos and all that junk associated with them together. Switching to Verizon or another carrier would cost me at least 100 more bucks a month.
As for Wifi calling, I travel for a living. Driving up and down the 5 freeway all week between LA, SF, and Sac. So sadly that wouldn't help me.
I appreciate the thoughts though.
Any love for Greater Boston?
