We are still several years away from 5G reporting to the US and fulfilling all the promises of rapid speed and low latency we've heard of. In this case, Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT & T, expects a change in the way mobile carriers divulge their plans today. During today's AT & T earnings talk, Randall Stephenson said 5G might be more akin to the broadband Internet at home, with different prices for different speed levels. With LTE data plans, you usually pay a price for the best performance the network can offer.
"I'm very surprised if the wireless pricing system in Wireless does not look like the rates regime you see in landlines," Stephenson said. "If you can offer a gig speed, there are some customers who are willing to pay a premium for 500 meg dollars for a gig speed etc. So I expect that to be the case. We are two to three years away from seeing the game. "
AT & T's actual 5G network ̵
So far AT & T has not yet announced prices for 5G mobile plans. But as Stephenson suggested, one can assume that the status quo has unlimited plans during the 5G childhood. Verizon charges an additional $ 10 for 5G access. This is currently only available for the Motorola 5G Moto-Mod unit, but has not been speeding. But as coverage expands, these companies can dramatically change the way we think about mobile plans.
