    • I think you need to seriously look into the HEALTH DANGERS of 5G- believe me- you should be able to live without 5G- otherwise- you won't be living long. Are you aware that 5G is a military grade weapon USED FOR CROWD CONTROL!!! Wake UP BROTHER!!!

    • Thank you for the information provided to you very much .. May I contact you whatsapp because I need some information about the phone galaxy s10 This phone number +212626545543 and I hope you communicate with me as soon as you all thanks

    • Marques Brownlee I think there might be an impending health risk to having all these 5G nodes all over the place as well as affecting the efficiency of emergency responses could be hampered if anyone of these nodes are affected by walls, trees or becomes faulty that could be a potential disaster waiting to happen.

    • John Maddalo Finally! People are talking about this! Yeah, im pretty sure it’s bad. The only people who say it’s not, are those supporting it...

    • Great practical feedback from user perspective rather than a jumping 10 years ahead mouthful brag from equipment vendors and service providers about 5G. You noted it right, to be having seamless 8K VR interaction, every 100ft will need to be equipped with 5G radio nodes and tbh that will cost dang a lot of money for service providers.

  • Hey Marques, that's a pretty cool t-shirt. Where can I find it?

  • That intro 😂

  • Pretty damn irresponsible to release technology which affects aren't confirmed yet. If it reacts that way to water and trees, you can only imagine what it can do to a human.

  • Very dangerous as well cancer will run rampant

  • Great video! Great dig at AT&t! So your thought is it's not worth it to buy a $1,600 phone right now for the 5G Network. Wait, how much did your phone cost you?

  • Good post MB. Appreciate the explanation of higher frequency waves, their limitations and the “blanket a city with towers” solution. I didn’t know any of that before. Question: so faster is better for sure, and the interconnected autonomous car idea seems like a real idea for the future, but if I was going to do remote surgery in another country wouldn’t I just use wifi? I mean, I’m going to have a super expensive surgery robot, so I’d likely have WiFi too, right? I’m trying to better capture the profound impacts of 5G other than faster download speeds for IT-tvs, VR, etc.

  • lol...loved the intro!

  • And I’m here with 500kb per sec

  • Wish you talked about how 5g isn’t worth the health sacrifice and harmful effects on the human body. We are still organic beings and we should people value ours brains a little higher then our download speeds. WE DONT WANT/NEED 5G. China can keep it along with google.

  • 5G Is A KILLER!!!! Danger Will Robinson Danger.......Peace & Love 2U All...............

  • Do you have literally a single comment on the possible health ramifications on this level of radiation? I get it, you’re at the cutting edge of tech and that’s your job, but it seems outrageous to just blindly accept all of the criticism just because of that. In fact it’s irresponsible. We should be demanding more from tech. Innovation but absolutely not at the determent of the general public. It’s the lack of this demand and criticism that has led to these pointless incremental iPhone updates and social media no longer a tool for the creator and the public but a tool for the advertisers. You can have a real impact on all of this man, not us. You.

  • Yoo I live in Antigua and we have 4G and I get 80MB

  • That components need to add to microwave all city?

  • Thank heavens I live in the country, they wont ever put 5g in here

  • This Sounds hazardous , Not good standard for automatic driven cars on 5GAA, with such disconnected speed... Big no for emergency 5G mobile medical Operations. Sounds like Marketing hype to sell it with new name with same old game.

  • Isn’t the worry more about the effects these high frequencies on the populace

  • This should be rolled out first around Brussels and tony Blair’s house. A ten year test plan for these special people

    • A well deserved English fry up!

  • The fact that you are listening to Hocus Pocus is as amazing as 5g ^^

  • 5G is to data connectivity what 8k currently is to consumer television. Impressive, but with little infrastructure and supporting hardware to enable it to thrive. But once all that is ironed out, maybe in the next 10 years, both will work very well together. 5G will help 8k (and 16k) reach the masses. As a health professional my only fear is what impact does a high concentration of signal transmitters have on human health.

  • Not a mature phone for 5G testing

  • The phone using more power for 5G implies the base station does too, although the base station might be better at beam forming. In the UK 4G uses more energy than the UK aviation sector. How much power will 5G need? For reference, a 4G base station antenna is rated at 300W per channel, with 12 channels per base station.

  • I wonder how bad everyone's going to be throttled once it takes off. 🙄

  • It’s stupid 5g will never take off. Hey all those cell companies need to put all that crap in all the areas of the desert where truckers never have any service

  • Fuck 5G it's part of a global agenda to kill off the world population. All governments are in on it

  • Plant as many trees as you can

  • 5G is literal cancer. There’s going to be cell towers everywhere beaming higher frequency waves.

  • 5g is also cancer

  • youre being hit with insane radiation keep that in mind when the rise of cancer happens

  • He didn't said about the mystery around the birds

  • Oh so this is the dude of the IT-tvs Rewind.

  • It’s over 9 thousand!!!!!!!

  • oh my god is that blood? 5:28

  • The human eye cannot see beyond 4g.

  • and here I am getting 0.02 wifi speed

  • couldn't they just put in some 5g modems on the phones, make them work as a 5g hotspots and create some sort of mesh 5g network, be cheaper and require a fewer 5g towers. seems really inefficient and far fetched to hope that every carrier would blanket every city block with 5g towers will actually be a thing. Specially when you consider, most place still dont have LTE.

  • 7:26 *OUCH!*

  • GG for me ..........Germany

  • huwaie 5g is far more better

  • i am watiching this vidieo using 8mbps wifi 🤣🤣🖕

  • How are you guys not woke 5G is going to fucking kill us

  • I am using my net at an average speed of 10kbps. :'(

  • I would pay thousands to live in the house actoss from that telephone pole

  • What happend to your arm it looks like ew..

  • Great video. Very informative.


  • Watching this on AT&T 5Ge

  • 5G and massive amounts of lethal cell melting radiation coming to a neighborhood near you! Yaay everyone technology is going backwards! Being used as weapons against the masses

    • Seriously. All this tech is harmful junk. But it makes everyone smarter, just ask them...

    • It’s non-Ionizing radiation. It can’t cause cancer. Can burn you though.

    • @Ali Reza no where just be ready to hit them with lawsuits when the rise of cancer starts

    • plant as much trees as you can,where would be safe?

  • 5G and massive amounts of lethal cell melting radiation coming to a neighborhood near you! Yaay everyone technology is going backwards! Being used as weapons against the masses

  • My mom is looking into buying a phone and I was telling her not to bother with 5G because it's not worth it yet. Thanks for confirming my suspicions!

  • 5G! Cancer delivered through the airways to you soon!

  • Me in Africa: what is 2G?!😂

  • I cant wait for 5g waaaw amazing technology !

  • I've been through several other technology rollouts in my life. I can get through this one, too. Patience, people.

    • This rollout will kill the birds.

  • 1600 dollars to drive around and try to use more internet speed

  • also assuming the health concerns around 5g go away


  • 7:25 Dude what happened to your hand???

  • It's ready for Huawei in 2019 :D

  • This guy is the best at educating people on tech
