Now everyone going to have to change out their phones again. More $$$ to the carriers and less in our own wallets.

I don't see how 5G is necessary unless you live in a dense urban centre. I live near a city of about 100,000, and when I run an Ookla speed test on my Moto Z2 Play, I get on average 70 Mbps. The only advantage that a human might notice is reduced ping times, that's it. Data is already so fast in most areas that a human might not even be able to discern the difference in speeds.

The truly unlimited part is noteworthy. At the very least it implies a trend toward far less restrictive data caps. Which, after all, is logical...if it only takes you a half second on the network to pull in what would have taken a minute before, they don't have to go on rationing it to the extent they seem to insist on now. Let's hope programmers and web site operators don't get sloppy though....
