Everyone focusing on download speeds, why can't there be any improvement to upload? 16.4mbps up when getting 569mbps down is ridiculous.

Well, its three after all cost is the only reason why I stick to it
200 is still unnecessary fast on a mobile phone
I'd love 200 I get 12 on my phone (smarty) and 63 on broadband (BT) but then I do live on the East coast , can't see us getting 5g anytime soon.

Average is 200mb- 300mb on ground floor indoor, upper floor upto 500 off peak.
Not surprising that 5G varies depending on where you stand, It's super high frequency signals are almost like light waves,easily blocked by walls. There's not much of a use case for 5G on phones except so that you'll finally get usable data in locations like central London. I can see a lot of use for 5G in home internet though, where if needed you can put the antenna outdoors.
Can anyone seriously say they would struggle with anything under 60 Mbps. These 5G speeds are way more than anyone will need.

Didn't realise they've released an iPhone 9, thought they skipped to X after the 8.

Depends on the person. If you are tethering, streaming, or mobile/cloud gaming, then you may need faster speeds.

The iPhone 9 does not exist, probably iPhone 7 or 8.

Don't worry Apple will reinvent 5G with the iPhone 12 and it will be magical!
