There is significant work to be done in terms of 5G infrastructure. Of particular importance is the clearing of the C-Band by various satellite providers which is happening in the US by the end of 2025. This will free up more spectrum for 5G.

Trust me, even Verizon LTE is way better than att altogether, including their fake 5G. You’re better off with it for now until things get built more

Isn’t the big thing with 5G is that everyone has to have it for it to work? Which is why Verizon is trying to push the 5G network on as many people as possible with the “free” 5G phones? It should in theory get better over time, no?

No, not at all.

I was pulling like 1.5 mbps on 5g, then toggled to LTE and hit above 5 mbps

The 5G hasn’t been that impressive imo. Better than LTE but no major difference in speed. Ultra Wideband is insane though. I’ve gotten the fastest speeds I’ve ever had, including wired at home/office, while on UW (2000+ mbps).

Wowzers

Is this at home or away from home?

5G hasn’t really rolled out en masse and will take time. Practically speaking you can consider all of this a soft launch. So your exp. isn’t surprising. It will also drain youy battery faster.

Yes, I left sprint/T-Mobile for Verizon because I had no service with Sprint. My parents kept sprint and when they switched with T-Mobile they have 5G and service everywhere. Only thing is Verizon my bill is that same every month. With sprint it was always a different amount every month.

We had to return to the office last week. The partner in the office next to me never closes his door, takes every call on speaker phone, does depositions on speaker phone, yelling and with the door wide open. I keep my door closed. I have in-ear plugs in and noise cancelling Bose headphones over it AND STILL CANNOT BLOCK IT OUT. My dictations are picking up his voice nearly as loud as my own. I cannot get things done and end up not billing what I should just to end up having to make up the time

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?

Help. My supervisor and I work closely together on our project. Partner and SM have told us directly they want me more visible, to build a brand with client, etc. But when I raise my hand to take things on (drive meetings, sub initiatives etc), manager refuses to give up any of the “higher visibility” work so that, in his words, he does not risk himself falling out of the spotlight, he wants to be the “go to”. It’s not that I am not capable (lots of great feedback from him and Partner/SM) -

Next week FAANG earnings begin with NFLX and following 2 weeks all the big boys go. Are earnings going to be catalyst for next leg up or next leg down? I don’t think better than expected works anymore like it did in the summer.  One thing to note though all the major tech companies but Apple are trading below where they did at Q3 earnings.
