you say shame on at&t for lying?....shame on you for not shedding light on the REAL health and safety dangers of what this technology will bring...not only to humans but to wildlife we highly depend on ...such as bees. Someone like you with a large audience should be informing people of this because its not just about speed. How about the fact that these companies are rolling this out without ANY health and safety testing...we are literally the guinea pigs. Cancers, tumors, especially in children will increase exponentially over the years...theres a deep deep concern about this technology and no one is talking about it...oh wait why is that? Look up "Bill 704" So shame on you for being an influencer and not showing your audience what the real cost of this speed will be. and please forget the word conspiracy..this is not a conspiracy , im not a conspiracy theorist but an educated professional....and if you think it is one than dont just write a comment saying "its a conspiracy", go do your own research. This is our generations chance to stop something that will only show its true effects in years to come like smoking....lets do something now instead of waiting until its too late. our phones and internet are fast enough..we dont need this especially not at the cost it will bring.

@Marques Brownlee, the low upload speed is not a 5G limitation, it's low bandwidth allocation by service provider ( in this case Verizon) . 5G is actually meant to be used in indoor areas or organizations. Setting up in a city or a country is just not feasible. These are demo nodes and they will be installed in high density areas only. As i said the infrastructure cost goes too high with area and not many people will be willing to pay high price for these benefits. What will happen is people will want to setup 5G node inside home, offices, campuses, airports, cafes and so on. But not the whole city. Unless the city management has loads of money in pocket.

Huawei claims it's not actual 5g. 5v right now we are getting is on 4g network and most of the 5g phones might not work on 5g when the actual 5g equipment gets installed other than their flagships at the moment

Great video. All I've heard tech reviewers talk about is 5G. I wasn't aware that the user needs to be almost line of sight to get the benefits. Guess having 5G in a new smart phone isn't nearly as clutch as it may seem to the average user.

You may also want to make a video on how 5G type of spectrum technology effect environment. Birds are already leaving cities because of spectrum bumbarding. I personally feel it will be nice if you also touch upon effects on environment everytime to review new technology.

5 G is the most DANGEROUS FREQUENCY released on man kind . The powers to be know this and are rolling it out fast before people realise the DANGER. Check out ( Birds fall from sky in coventry after 5G was turned on. ) If it's killing birds nearly instantly can you imagine what it is doing to humans..

@đeri662 total bull shit birds are dying all over the world from this phenomenon. Not are they only dying from the frequency 10s of millions die from colliding into cell towers as Well. 5G is so DANGEROUS scientists agree it should not be used at all anywhere..Do the research for yourself before you start talking crap...
đeri662 3 days ago
5G is not a frequency and the story with the starllings was just pure fear-mongering. No 5G test was conducted in or near Hague.
The S.F. Experience
No one has mentioned the potential radiation issue from these 5G nodes. People can be very naive to dangers that are not visibly present. 5G will demand more towers and so more radiation and at highter power.

đeri662 3 days ago
Don't be ridiculous. The story with the starlings was pure fear-mongering, there was no 5G test in or near Hague. It doesn't produce cancer cells, the radiation from 5G systems is deep in the non-ionising spectrum (even visible light has a much higher energy per photon).

you could've easily done a test with 2 phones and check whether the speed splits /2

Quantum Mechanics of biology . Look into long term effects.

Id rather keep the trees and use a 3G. This is rediculous. Im fine. Possible to keep a none 5G going. Actualky be very glad those waves dont go through everything. Your body has wave activity and can be affected..

You are absolutly surrounded with EM radiation all the time, even without any technology. Visible light, infra-red radiation is also an EM radiation!

Even 4G in my country is damn slow.most of the time we will only get near 4G and even with 4G the speed is bullshit And now the carrriers want to launch 5G.. 5G my ass..improve the speed of the 4G network first and make it available to all area and then you should launch the damn 5G..
