    You can view cat videos at light speed! Download a new app as soon as you release the button. Hit your data cap in record time!

    Meanwhile, I feel like a rebel... a phone user who isn't interested in staring at my phone all day. :p

    The performance potential with 5G won't be limited to smartphones. Consumer-based modems, global network coverage at seriously blazing speeds surpassing your cable or fiber home connection with very low latency. The technology has the potential to overhaul anything that needs an internet connection.

    In a way, I have to agree. Sooner or later mobile service providers will realize that something like 2 Euro per 250MB is not acceptable.
    Currently best offer one can get here (via corporate employee deal / limited university student deal) is 25 Euro per 10GB.

    It would be interesting when wireless can compete with your cable provider.

    Normally, I'd get excited about the competition about to ensue as more people rid themselves of traditional cable in lieu of streaming services while additionally turning to the internet for more of their entertainment "needs". You would think this would promote competition and mean lower prices for consumers, though in the U.S., most cable companies have part ownership in wireless companies AND they own a stake in most of the content providers out there be it cable networks or streaming services.

    I hope I'm wrong about this, but I see it as becoming consumers having a "choice" regarding how they want to be abused by Big Cable or Big Wireless (I would think all will one day be wireless, though).
