Why You Shouldn’t Buy a 5G Router

You can only use this router if your area has 5 G Internet. When 5 G service comes, it could be incredible. 5 G service theoretical restriction is 10 Gbps. Today, most fiber-optic services and some cable suppliers are still at 1 Gbps. That show in Verizon’s press release:

5 G will increase competition in the mobile industry in the coming years.

So if you’d buy a 5 G modem, obviously it won’t do you any good. Don’t go out searching for this device. It’s uncertain whether manufacturers will sell this product to consumers. And even if they do, your provider won’t let you use the it.

This new technology promise significant speed gains. But it’s best to wait and see like almost all new technologies until all the details are shaken out.
