5G is certainly going to be interesting and useful provided it isn't overhyped.

Yeah, right.

 

That claim will come back to haunt them I think on the basis that service quality is dictated by a large number of variables and in case of mobile networks quite a few are beyond operator control such as mast distance from the user and of course, our beautiful weather Smiley Happy

Re: New tech

Wireless has its limits such as attenuation in the broadcast signal caused by random events such as weather, tempature and available bandwidth on the device and cell tower. I'm not sure I would want my services all tied into one network, especially if you run a home network or VPN if you work from home for example.

 

Of course, all this rhetorical and based on scenarios that may not exist for every user. I know for sure, you should never put your eggs in one basket. Which is why Virginmedia running everything through the one connection is a pain. 

 

 

Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones.

Unified Communication is the buzzphrase here.

 

BT are putting voice and data traffic onto one IP network core which is what the mobile standards are now doing and of course Virgin Media which is now favouring Fibre all the way to the premises over it's Hybrid Fibre Coax when expanding it's network.

 

Less cabling and less equipment (and associated housing, power and cooling),

 

Where I work we switched to IP phones some years back with PCs, servers and IP devices all sharing the same network, the only exception are emergency phones in lifts that are still analogue.
