    Stalling, installing, not stalling, uninstalling.................................I'm getting a headache. Why not just wait 18 months and then one side or the other or both can say "I told you so"? :)

    So, Dish is stalling their installation by having techs start installing and field testing? Damn, I've been a staller all my life and never considered stalling doing something by actually doing it!

    Or wasting labor costs and hardware costs to "stall."

    The installer stalled the installation by instilling stall tactics before the install.

    If you google "iot lte modem" you'll find a number of manufacturers providing said item right now for 4G networks. The bandwidth used is quite low though, so I'm not sure what advantage moving to 5G (whatever that's going to be) is supposed to bring.

    In addition to throughput increases, 5G will offer lower latency and high concurrency, so less lag and more devices connected to a given tower (or more connections per device I suppose). Also, less energy will be required, so batteries will last longer. Dish also technically has an advantage by building 5G from the ground up, and not having to overlay it on legacy network technologies, but that is a one-time advantage. When it comes to 6G, they will be in the same boat as everyone else (in theory). They will be using SDN, which is supposed to be better, although, in my experience, meh.

    I believe the latency on 4G is roughly 25ms, where on 5G it is closer to 2ms. That alone is a game changer.

    A few observations.
    Ericsson is a leader if not the leader in 5G equipment along with Qualcomm.
    Not a coincidence that Tmobile also has a deal with Ericsson for 5G and Tmobile made the "complaint" about DISH holding on to spectrum recently.
    Not a coincidence DISH comes back with this announcement

    Finally, it has been said several times over many years here as he has pulled off what seemed he could not....

    Not sure if this is true or not but somebody told me that the Police use a 5g or 6g connection on there field laptops. Dont know how they could have 6th generation when 5g is not public but who knows.

    Pretty sure that is still an LTE network right now, just on a dedicated band. They are planning to develop it over time to utilize 5G tech.

    "FirstNet's representatives said that LTE technology (the data and apps that people have on their smart phones) will help emergency responders during public emergencies."

    Well, no word on how they will structure payments that I have seen, but I wouldn't assume you're going to pay $10/month for each IOT device. 5G is supposed to reduce costs as well.

    the latency on mine is at 1 millisecond. even though verizon says a 1 gig max it gets faster trust me that just depends on factors like how far away from the tower you are ect ect!!! i always hit higher speeds than a GB:):biggrin
