Actually, out here in northern Scotland, 4G could already make my
landline redundant if only there was a suitably priced plan that gave me
unlimited or nearly so download limits, but AFAIAA there isn't.


Fake news. Oxygen absorption gives 300m range. So each radio modem needs
fiber optic modems 300m apart running at 10GHz. May as well roll out
Internet of fiber first. Connect everyone with $20 SFP 10gbit symmetric
fiber modules at higher speed than 5G, and cheaply at $150 per one off
connection fee, without a 250,000 5G radio modem!
