WHO calls this 5G Wifi ?
These symbols / acronyms used to actuially MEAN something, but these days idiotic people say "Y'all givin me the phone with the most Gs, ya hear??"
Or people refering to a device as a "Samsung 4G", I'm sick of this. I hope NOBODY calls this "5G wifi" , It's wifi ac, or B, or G, or N.
Idiotic acronyms have no place in technology, I don't care how stupid or uneducated the average person is.
Hey, more speed is allllways better!!!!
