I don't see this as a bad thing at all. You're probably gonna get 200Mbps minimum on 5G which is plenty enough to stream 4k videos on your 1080p device :3
Funny i have a 1TB a second at my home wireless wifi and pay 35 euros for that per months along with a TV programs where i am able to watcha round 200 different programs and have a landline with unlimited calls within my country.
So all this for just 35 euros and most TV programs are HD or even better.
By the comments I read, I think no one is getting At&T's strategy .. This is about limiting the speed that you are getting on your device, no matter if you are on 3G, 4G or 5G, of course higher speeds will be connected on the 5G network, but by what I read on the article is that you can be connected to 5G and be limited to let's say 4G speeds
This is dumbest again from a cell phone carrier. I dont know how much they can milk their customers.
There's something else to consider. As 5G rolls out, 4G networks will become less congested. As staying on the 4G networks becomes more of an option. Even now in some spots I find that switching to 3G actually increases the speed of my net connection.
AT&T expects a lot from a short range signal that won't penetrate a glass window.

Bewildered asyer, 25 Apr 2019At a minimum 5G is 1000 times faster than 4G
Why would you pay moreReal life tests of 4g and 5g currently show them to be at the same level based on the recently launched 5G networks.
Paying more for 5g will be a waste right now
