T-Mobile says its 5G network will be right with or ahead of the competition launch

So I get around 60 Megabits per second on LTE. Then I should get 60000 Megabits per second on 5G (7,500 Megabytes per second). What a great way to end 25GB under 4 seconds! It would be awesome to have 5G unlimited lol

I got unl data, but in Honduras I barely have 4G.

I wish the telecoms would be honest with consumers and stipulate that all these crazy speeds are theoretical and not likely to happen in the real world. Large urban areas have insane congestion and you're lucky to get DSL speeds. Rural areas are privileged to receive HSPA speeds when they're not on EDGE.

That, and that they would switch to a system based around bandwidth rather then data cap.

We know god damn well T-Mobile isn't getting 5G ahead of anyone. For a guy who says cut the Bull$hit that sure is the mother load of bullsh!t.

i think he meant the quality and coverage not first which is fine no one was expecting them to be first .. Not ahead to be the first. Verizon said 2017, AT&T said later in 2016.

Yay we get to reach the data cap less than a minute!

Interesting to see how much lower latency will be on 5G.

This is great news. I bet my DVD quality standard def 480p and below videos will look great on 5g!

Or you can easily disable that and pay for your data speeds instead. It's not even the complaints about free optional stuff that get me, what I really get a kick out of is the complaints about 480p DVD quality... You self entitled kids have no idea how amazing the "the matrix" DVD was. Can't appreciate sh!t...

I'm confused. Why would I want to disable bingeon when they automatically signed me up for it? If they're going to wind back the clock on video resolution, why not do the same for data speed? Instead of 5g why not further develop 3g or maybe 1g? If 480p is amazing dvd quality, I'm sure 3 g will be amazing too. It's "landline quality!" Amazing!
