Why dont they transmit the signal down your electricity feed? plug your router in and hey presto your connected, or how about your router also transmits for your neighbour, or is there limits on how close you can stand to a transmitter before you grow a second head or your lungs start to melt.

I don't understand the technicalities of 5G, but I believe the technology uses a technique called Massive Mimo using lots of antennas, possibly in conjunction with beam forming. The antennas will be spaced 1/2 wavelength apart and the theory is that multiple users will be have access to high speed data connection. Now it all sounds good, in theory, but i'm sceptical about the real life results when the cells are stressed with large amounts of data. I'm guessing issues will arise relating to obstacles, reflections and possible issues due to atmospheric conditions. The cells will have to have enough backhaul capacity to deal with the data demands of all users and be reliable. Your WiFi router is in your house, so it only has to deal with a small area, the 5G cells will have to deal with multiple static users going on and offline, with demand fluctuating throughout the day. The cells wont be cheap to maintain, and will require space for backhaul network equipment, as well as the transmitting and receiving equipment. The articles promoting this sound great, but it seems like an expensive setup to me. Around city centres, Fibre will be routed back to the exchanges and unaffected by external conditions and requires no further action for years, unless disturbed. I suspect that 5G cells will require a lot of maintenance and may not completely live up to expectations, time will tell.
I get that some people want to play down BT's UK dominance, but BT have it covered from all angles.

Isn't one of the benefits of 5G that as long as there is signal it works well no matter how many people are connected to the network? I'm not an engineer so not sure.

It wont compete with Fibre, they would need a cell on every street corner and the delay would be horrendous if all users decided to stream HD movies at the same time. I suspect it will be a niche product, not a game changer.

Hey Pete yes you’re riight 3 are little disrupters, but this move is quite a thing, probably couple of years too early for other operators who are still investing in fibre. I’ve been watching this product in the states from Verizon, as far as I can tell it’s working well, delivering amazing speeds.

Can’t be a big surprise to BT that 3 are doing this Aus. It’s what they’ve done to grab share historically and without something like this for 5g they’d likely be forgotten by consumers and disappear into history in terms of the UK market.

Pacey I think you miss the point, swapping high value retail customers for low value wholesale back haul is bad for BT all round& 3 started unlimited 4G first so why not 5G ?

Are launching 5G fixed broadband across 25 UK cities before the end of 2019...... that might disrupt our world ?
