I assume it's not widespread yet. Anyone know when AT&T powers up all their new towers? Might be time to switch? What about Verizon 5G?

I'm on Google Fi now but don't have a 5G phone yet - anyone on Fi get 5G? How is it?

I thought all the new towers up and down 30A are AT&T.

Since the cell phone companies have gone to a pretty common standard regarding networks they'll likely be shared towers.

According to the doom sayers we'll know when they turn on because all of the birds will drop out of the sky.

They'll likely serve any 5g phone on various carriers, but the towers won't work for older model cell phones.

I don't believe they've been turned on.

I just ordered a 5G phone on Fi and will report back. It looks like T Mobile has some 5G coverage in the area which is one of the carriers Fi uses.
