GadgetGuy’s take – D-Link 5G routers are a beginning

Before we get too excited about 5G speed, read our 5G guide.

Note also that this information is from a global press release and there is no indication that we will get any or all of these items, let alone pricing.

And at present Tel$tra’s 5G reception is so patchy and data so costly that there is no real take-up of 5G phones or this modem/router technology.

We will keep you posted.
