    Haha yeah only because they say it will be ready by 2020 doesn't mean that it will. The release schedule on things like this usually change both one, two and three times so I wouldn't be surprised if it's going to be delayed a few years at least. :D

    Regardless of when it's released, there's also the adoption time to take into account.

    I don't care about 5G, heck i would much more prefer to have unlimited 2G than 300mb limit on 5G

    Yes, I've also heard about 5G and 1Gbps speed, but I wonder why announce it 7 years in advance? I think they are promoting their image as their state of the art in technology. They also say that in 2020 we'll be able to have a conversation with our machines... One thing for sure, the speed of technological development is accelerating exponentially.
