5G sounds cool, right?
Just keep in mind, many (or most) of you reading this won’t be able to take advantage of the fastest “millimeter wave” speeds Apple bragged about during this presentation. The technology has limited availability on limited carriers, mostly in urban areas.
And even if you live in a city with millimeter wave 5G, the signal has limited range and can’t penetrate through walls. You need to be standing right near the tower. Good luck using it indoors.
