No I live in a "town" of around 160,000. For whatever reason they like to think of our city as a town despite going from around 7500 in the 1970s to 160K today. My subdivision is about 24 years old. AT&T came with fiber about 6 years ago, followed by Google about 3 years ago. Spectrum (Time Warner) has been here since the subdivision was built. We were one of the markets Google decided to build out with their fiber project. I may be getting a Verizon 5G home internet device for my work laptop and phone. I work for Verizon and have been identified as a possible tester. 5G will be a viable primary internet connection, but rural areas are going to lag behind suburban and urban areas. It involves building a fiber network to support a lot more, albeit smaller, towers for 5G. The frequencies allow much faster speeds but don't travel as far as 4G. 5G transceivers can be mounted on telephone poles or street lights. The big advantage is we don't need to install anything into the home. Just ship a box to the customer and they plug it in.Wow, three options! Are you out in a rural area?
That's where I'm at and the company that needs their receiver on the pole is the only one out here that has decent internet speed.
Tomorrow is the big day they come out to test using a temp 50 foot pole they raise up from the back of their service truck for testing to see if that is high enough for their receiver to get a signal from their tower which is about 2 miles away.
Their system is like a radio wave signal going into a small receiver that looks kinda like a satellite dish. It's what we use now nd it works pretty well. W#e can have 2 TVs streeming at the same time without buffering so that's what counts right?
