From what Ive read on this topic, I dont think it works like that, its not like we can keep going up, like 6G, 7G, and so on. Even with 5G, there is a lot of concern with how that will impact our health and how it will change society (in both positive and negative ways).

Wait wait, I missed this. So you already have 5g home internet service from Verizon?!?
As someone who keeps on on carrier news, this is mind blowing to me. Where do you live? When did this happen?...
or... wait... are you just using the hotspot on your Samsung?

We already have cameras everywhere. Nobody is waiting for 5G for that to happen.

I agree, and that may even be optimistic. The service may be deployed in dense urban areas, but we're a long way from it here in the hinterlands. At my house today, I have erratic cell service and often none.

IIRC they started rolling out limited access (a few neighborhoods in a few cities) back in October or November.

Their website shows that it's available in parts of Houston, Indy, LA, and Sacramento.

i live in LA and yes i do have there 5G whole home broadband and i also have the samsung S10 5G phone to. i belive we were one of the first to get 5G!!! but it's very limited!!! i am not using the hotspot on my samsung phone i also have the home modem and router they even gave me free WIFI extenders to ( but i had to prove to them i needed them ). i got the first 3 months of service free free apple tv mine to keep free 3 months of youtube tv free upgrades for the first year free install. though to be honest i could use the hotspot feature on my S10 5g and it will act like a 5G hotspot!!! and there's no data caps no taxes or hardware rental fee's it's all included in the price of 50.00 or 70.00 a month depending on weather your a verizon sub or not... the latency on the home modem is like a millisecond with speeds of like 18 GBPS down!!! it's pretty insane
