    Behind paywall so useless to post link (without article) because most likely those who are WSJ subscribers have read it and those of us who are not ... can't.

    Hmmm, was not behind a paywall when I first saw it or I wouldn't have been able to read it, unusual as WSJ is always pay walled. It's paywalled now for me also. Somebody screwed up and then corrected it.

    Kids that impatient they get all excited about 5G, 3G feels more than fast enough to me on my phone, 4G or 3G I can't tell the difference.

    The context is mostly wireless internet for surfing the web, streaming web content or trading. Some folks in the countryside, get their primary internet service from a wireless hotspot, as do i.

    Hot Spot of Phone or 3G/4G on either of my tablets stream movies just fine, I prefer the 1 tablet on 4G for Netflix, more reliable than my Wifi and unlimited Netflix so all good :)

    Where do you live then, if it's Hotspot or nothing ??

    Good is good :)

    I'm about 4 miles outside of a small town in Arkansas. I do have internet through landline phone company CenturyLink but download speed ranges from 0.5 MBPS to 1.5 MBPS and then i also have the Verizon Hotspot in my detached office, where download speed today is 27.0 MBPS

    It's all good.
