In some urban areas, 5G speeds are closing-in on 2 Gbps. If network capacity could deal with it, 5G could become a useful alternative to cable or FIOS internet. The issue with 5G is that relatively slow speeds, like 200 Mbps can still be "the norm". It's frustrating as hell, but "5G" means pretty much any speed from 200 Mbps to 2 Gpbs depending on your geographic location and what network you are on. You can be on a near-2Gbps network in one area and 50 miles away, the max 5G speed might be 200 Mbps--if 5G is even available 50 miles away. There's a long way to go before you get the faster 5G connections all the time (if you have a 5G phone).
