5G Speeeeeeed 😱

Just popped to Greggs, as you do and whilst sitting in the Disco munching my bacon butty I noticed a new 5G mast near the petrol station car park. So been me did a speed check. Well couldn’t believe the speed but is my head going to start melting 😂😂

Shocked I hope you're OK!

You know you must always protect yourself from 5G. You don't know what viruses you might catch or how it will control your thoughts. Laughing

Why do you think 5g mobile routers are sooo expensive? The signal has been around for some years now, but the routers are around £300+, compared to about £60 for 4g.

There's always StarLink.

I have a few friends who are delighted with it.

Negotiate & you can get a discount on the hardware.

How peculiar !

I wanted to edit my above posted but it posted itself with a reduced left hand margin.

All I wanted to do was to make the URL a little more attractive and add that I even have friends in built up areas using StarLink - it's certainly worth considering.

Crazy that the WiFi is now theoretically faster than a 2.5gig ethernet port and in order to make use of the full speed you now connect via USB (albeit C)

Just checked and was going to say that there's not 5G coverage within c.50 miles (as the crow/signal flies) but on checking EE was very surprised to see they have 5G in Kyle of Lochalsh and Fort Augustus! Surprised

Quite happy with my 300Mb fibre, can up it to 900Mb if I want to pay the bill (I don't).

Even 4G is a bit flakey here despite the mast being 1/4 mile away.

The 3 map shows me just on the edge of their 5G coverage and the search says no. (in fact I think one side of the house is yes, the other side including the garden is no)

I have seen some adverts for free Starlink hardware (refurbed) and £80/month

Our current 40-50Mbps BT line is ok for us - two of us working from home, the occasional film, nothing too strenuous in terms of downloads.
