5G is certainly the future @JAMES4578 

 

However for some in the UK actually getting a good stable 3G or 4G from their Network would be the first priority for them

A 5G  S10 is now available  (however don't get too excited yet   currently restricted to South Korea, seems no imminent plans for an international release.   However no doubt will come in time.

 

On that note Samsung announced high speed over air.   A bit also in the S10 section inccluding a video.

As 5G  Networks are likely to be  the core structure on which digital services are built, security has become a vital component in the system as  a hostile power could disrupt the efficient functioning of services.   As has been reported the Uk may well  allow Huawei   to provide at least some of the technology despite reservations raised (though word came about after leak from National Security  council which has now lead to replacement of Defence Secretary) As far back as 2014 the US  banned the company from Government  contracts and the current administration as sought to "persuade" its allies on this course of action.   However mobile companies have expressed concerns that a ban would hurt them  and delay the technology,    of course likely political factors also at play in both countries. 

 

The EU is apparently  worried that any vulnerability would affect the whole union  and there needs to be a thorough risk assessment, however likely to take a different approach than the States, believing concerns can be addressed in the regulatory framework.
