Millimeter wave at a gigabit from Verizon, but almost all the other "5G" is mid-band, 70%-90% slower. India's Ambani has now targeted 50M FTTH connected after reaching 215M LTE in less than two years. China has 300M FTTH and a billion LTE.India & China are leaving the west in the dust. Lower costs are spurring FTTH across Europe.
Mid-band, especially 3.5 GHz, is close to dozens of announcements. "Gig LTE" is delivering common real speeds of 200-400 MHz, "peaks in the lab" over a gig. With NR software, it's called "5G" and runs 15% to 50% faster. That's little faster; the 5G hype is the most excessive since the 2000 Internet boom absurdities. Add LAA to Gig LTE and 500 megabits is common. T-Mobile has done that in mid-town Manhattan and has ordered 25,000 LTE/LAA cells to take that nationwide. "5G," except mmWave, is a modest improvement insignificant except to network builders.
G.fast is real, with a million ports shipped. True gigabit from the basement or rooftop. Many have decided the extra cost of FTTH is usually worth it. 50-250 megabit VDSL 35B is finally working, two years late. Netherlands has turned it on. DT is ready 10M lines, promising speeds over 100 megabits.
Myanmar (30 megs average) and India (96% covered by LTE, Massively MIMO) are in many ways better than wireless in Germany, the U.S., and England.
