I just imagine teenagers in the future complaining how slow 5g is

Edit: lmao stop with the 5g wont kill you replies, it’s just making it worse
Edit 2: LMAO, this comment got more likes than marques’s comment
I imagine kids in the future complaining how slow 5G is while downloading their hologram spaceship space real reality simulator

The best thing about 5G is that 4G is on the verge of becoming significantly more affordable.
Him gets 2.1 gigabits
all of Australia (cries in 50 megabits)
MKBHD: We all have 4G now
Germany: * laughs in 3G *
You realize we haven’t even truly got 4G yet 😂🤣😒……………

i got cancer from the 5g on this video
Looks like something youd get points for destroying in an open world game
4G is completely fine with me and it's much more stable.
_Hello, police? Yes, there's a suspicious man just standing outside my house... he's just staring at his phone and.. and his eyes are getting bigger. I think he's on something, please send someone!_

My mom is looking into buying a phone and I was telling her not to bother with 5G because it's not worth it yet. Thanks for confirming my suspicions!

Thank you for shaming At&t. They deserve every second of that. Even Sprint, who poops on their customers daily, did not scoop that low.

Hey @MKBHD did you hurt yourself near your Elbow.. Just could not ignore that!
Be funny seeing people walk down the street to download a whole season of a show, then walk back home.
Just because you didn't ask for a "subscribe, like and hit the notification" I will do all of that! Respect!
1000 subs 'nd no vids??
1000 subs 'nd no vids??:
Me getting 500 kbps

Completely worthless in Germany. Data is way to expensive here. Would cost 2.6€ per second of using 5G at full speed. No thanks.
why do we need so much download speed? What do you download?? Videos on Youtube play instantly anyway with 20Mbps. What THE FECK are you doing with 1000??!
Signal in my neighbor's house: 4G
Signal in Antarctica: 4G
Signal on Mars: 4G

Signal in my room: EDGE
Yeah I remember that good old 3G... EVERY time I sit in the public train in Germany xDDD 5G is so not ready for big parts of the world because not even 4G is great everywhere
Nice work. Best explanation I’ve seen on this subject. I smashed the bell.

It's the future 🔮 but I think that there is a long way to reach all of us in all country's.
Isn’t this unsafe for health? Doesn’t long exposure to such frequencies cause cancer?
M C:
I'm honestly fine with 4G

I feel like a new tech will come around before 5G infrastructure is common.

Wow went to where I live. So 5G in my area. Now I know.
I remember back in 2000 I used to have 14.4Kbit/s on my wired laptop.😉

Real life was so good back then...😞

5G may be good for big city, but i think 4G will stay for a while since you only need one antenna for an area where you need 10 5g antena
They need to find a different way. Why should we need all that radiation in our environment. Is there any proof its safe?

Thank you for this video. I'm about to invest a lot of cash into a 4g weboost for RV lifestyles and needed an idea how long it would remain relevant before 5g finally happens countrywide - seemingly a LONG time.

5G is a health hazard. Look into it. Belgian government halted a 5G because its a health concern. Several leaders in Congress have written to the Federal Communications Commission expressing concern about potential health risks. And in Mill Valley, California, the city council blocked the deployment of new 5G wireless cells. Spread the word!
