I wondered the same as eyeb, why do we need 5G? The UK government is investing heavily in this new technology and I keep hearing stuff on the news about Huawei/5G and spying;

More UK cities are testing 5G. Here's how it could be useful;

.... maybe explains some of its uses.

The Gateshead Council street light conspiracy theory;

..... maybe its other uses, and the risks - or not.

5G will enable the Chinese government to spy on our government while our government spy on us?

As with all such things as these, the more you read the less you learn, and 5G will become a part of our lives one way or another, whether we like it or not.

The one thing I do know for sure is that all new technology eventually costs me more money
