Galaxy S10 5G's Verizon speeds blew us away

  • Published on May 17, 2019
  • We downloaded about 10 hours of video in under 5 minutes and sped past 1Gbps download speeds in our downtown Chicago field tests. This was a night-and-day experience compared with our first tests six weeks ago.

      Lots of lovely CANCER free with your 5g, wi-fi, mobile phones, smart meters etc and the LED Street lights that the 5g is sitting on top of and plenty of scientists such as Professor Olle Johansson, doctors such as Dr Graham Downing and ex- Royal Navy Electronic Warfare Experts such as Barry Trower exposing all of this. All of this just so that a planet full of zombies can sit staring at their screen full of drivel while our governments are enacting UN Agenda 21, 2030 etc to get rid of 95% of the worlds population by 2050. They are even covering up all of the cancer sures such as GCMAF by shutting down the people producing this and then jailing them to shut them up as is being exposed by Ian R Crane on his channel on here just now with regard to David Noakes and Lyn Thyer. He was also exposing Gateshead Councils attempt to jail Mark Steel to shut him up from exposing the EVIDENCE showing that the 5g and LED Street Lights are dangerous and causing cancer.

    I've seen those nodes, and they look like shit. They put those nodes on every single light pole. The cell networks are turning our downtowns into industrial zones. I might as well as take my vacation photos in front of a warehouse. And you can always count on the cell networks to do the cheapest co-location possible. Nevermind that placing the node on a building is better aesthetically and even functionally.

    All smoke and mirrors. Wait until the network gets saturated. LOL at thinking carriers are trying to get you to have faster speeds. They just want to most connections possible on a single end point. LTE is barely fast in cities compared to when it was released.

    My verizon 4g was awful! I switched to T-Mobile and I consistently get 100+. Verizon used to be great until everyone and their mother signed up. They never update their towers and the speeds are dismal. 5G works great now cause its new. Wait until everyone signs up.

    I will set data speed management , it's like limit the speed .. because sometimes you watch the video just say in 4k .. and you're in 4 minutes on the video but decide to leave it because you don't like it .. but the video is already fully loaded because fast internet .. so it sucks i think .. unless you have it on wifi

    before you consider this, im not saying you shouldn't but definitely do your research on 5G because I've been seeing alot of people making videos talking about this who work on cell phone towers for a living and it I guess is actually alot more dangerous than people realize because of the frequency setup. It might not be true. I don't know. I rely more sources from people who actually experience first hand rather than just news which you kind of have to nowadays to find out the actual truth.

  • Arne Maeschaelck
    Arne Maeschaelck 5 days ago

    congrats girl, you probably just turned radioactive.
    but all joking aside, who needs this? I live in Europe so I assume technology is a step ahead in the US, and even over here LTE gets speeds of about 100 Mbps down and 50 up when it's very crowded outside. I live in a quiet, more rural neighborhood and just did a test downstairs: 93 Mbps down and 36 up, and the results are usually much better upstairs. even in the basement, on two bars, I get about 40-50 Mbps down.
    worst case scenario, you're connected to a low frequency antenna for better coverage and then you get about 20 down, 20 up, but when browsing the web you're not gonna notice a difference between 20 and 200 Mbps at all! and nobody downloads movies over LTE, nobody has enough data for that, and if you'd have enough data, it's still smarter to stream, which I can even do in 4K over 3G! 3g speeds are 7 Mbps at worst but about 20 in the city on dc-3g and 12-ish Mbps on hspa+ in rural areas.
    if you have a family pack, home WiFi is usually 200 Mbps down (or 400 if you have a booster option) which is more than enough to download a movie before you leave.
    at 1 gbps, you're literally pretty much downloading faster than the phone can write / save the information?? + most Android users probably save it to an SD card, which will take away all of your speed advantages instantly. this is so unnecessary lol, heck I could totally still live with 3G without any problems at all! the main advantage of LTE for me is latency (usually around 15-20 ms, whereas 3G is around 40 for me. home WiFi is 5-10).
