I suspect it will be a few years before we see the widespead deployment of 5G. By then you should be ready for a new phone.

With the Iphones, hot spots are built in. No need to upgrade and no need for a seperate hot spot. Ready for the 5G but some rural areas are still stuck in 3G

It's less about the device and more about what is available where you are at, many rural areas we work at still do not have 3 or 4g.

   Hi, Bob.  Your question sent me on a search for 5th generation cell phone technology.   The best that I came up with (in a hurry) is this article from PC Mag last week, 

                             "What is 5G?"

Bob "RealMan" Timm - I didn't think there was anyone with a phone older than my S4, but then you came along with your S3.  I'm impressed in a weird sort of way. 

I'm getting ready to get an S9.  I'll buy it once there's a special attractive enough for me to pull the trigger. 

I'm not going to worry about 5G and I don't think you should, either.  Enjoy your new phone and stop reading about the latest and greatest.  It'll drive you nuts.

No need here.  The adjacent market to me will likely get it in the first or second wave of deployments (Los Angeles County).  They had 4G/LTE over a year before Ventura County did.  Personally, to paraphrase Joseph Domino 480-390-6011, it would need to be in all the places I go to and be reliable.  By that time, I'll probably be ready to upgrade my phone to one that supports it.

Unless there is a compelling reason to receive real time data..... The 5 G which is 1000 times faster than your 3 G will blow your mind. Actually the driving force is the Chinese Huawei and Trump blocked the sale through ATT dealership to allow Apple to get caught up. Was travelling overseas every country uses Huawei or Samsung.  Reason is simple, iPhone is overpriced by a large margin.  May be Trump will bark at Aapl's monopoly over US smart iPhone overcharging consumers. Not sure why Googl phone is not popular.

And if you wait a few more months after the 5G debut, you will be ready for the 6G. They just keep coming. My son has a 4G TV and very little programming to support it. Nice picture though!
