I see that playing out as people seem to have stopped caring about quality.
Anything to drive prices down and speeds up will be a good thing. To the average user they wont care how content is delivered much less about quality. The only people it will truly matter for are users in the IT industry and gamers worried about latency.

It will deliver SD/HD/UHD content the same with the same compression/lossy audio, the average user plainly put does not care hell even I find myself starting to stream out of sheer convenience because I do not want to get up and change disks at times, or its a faster way to get my kids movies/shows on the TV.

You have to remember outside of the US, most lines and frequencies are not owned by the providers as they are here in the USA. They are owned maintained and upgraded by the various governments.

5g runs on a frequency that destroys DNA. I hope it fails cause the way they want to put high powered attena outside residential home is dangerous.

Here's a photo of an AT&T 5G pole in the Dallas area.

It's just getting started. I think it's one of those things where the short-term impact is overestimated and the long-term impact underestimated.

In my area there is now an ISP that offers Internet access (200 mbps down, 100 mbps up) with a fixed wireless link on the last mile. They don't use 5G standards, but the service is very similar to 5G-based fixed mobile access that e.g. Verizon is introducing in some markets. This is the first time in a decade that there is real competition for Comcast in my area, which now - like magic - has introduced lower-priced deals. Still more expensive than the new ISP though. As soon as my 12-month commitment with Comcast runs out I'll switch. Can't wait to dump the crooks.

Can we actually get working 4G into areas with spotty coverage before we worry about expanding the "next generation" of barely adequate coverage?

Just my 2c.

5G can actually help with that, because it opens up some new frequency bands in the sub 6 GHz range. But the spectrum licensing situation in the US is fairly complicated.

T-Mobile in December introduced the market's newest 5G moniker: "Ultra Capacity."

The label will stew alongside "5G Ultra Wideband," "Extended Range 5G," "5G+," "5Ge," "5GTF," "5G Nationwide" and plain-old "5G" in the US wireless industry, ensuring that if American mobile customers aren't confused yet, it's only a matter of time before they're hopelessly bewildered by operators' thesaurus-toting marketing executives.

"One midband Ultra Capacity 5G site can cover tens of thousands of times the area that one Verizon Ultra Wideband 5G site can cover, giving T-Mobile customers the Wi-Fi rivaling 5G speeds in waaaaay more places," boasted T-Mobile in a release that incredibly did not include a glossary.
