5G is the biggest scam. I don't know why the media is buying into it so much. LTE is plenty fast enough, if the network providers just devoted the bandwidth to it. And 5G is worse, because it doesn't work over long distances, requires tons of extra towers that don't exist yet, and may never exist. It's crazy.
Also, charging $650 for basically the router required to use the service is crazy. It's like if the phone company forced you to buy a $650 router to upgrade to fiber. No one would do it. I hope people aren't suckers for this.

So what is the point of this device if it is only for people who do not want a phone but just the 5G.
Well 4G is good enough.
5G will be for people which cant wait several years for a 5G phones priced at where 4G phones are now.
glad im living in PH where $1 is good for 3GB of data for 3 days so those routers/hotspots were not needed actually
lol really? Who needs all that stuff in a 5G hotspot device? I'll wait for Huawei to bring one, with universal band support... and buy it in 2021.
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2019LOL $35 & $80 for data plan. Thanks to Jio internet is cheap in India.even i use jio... but its a lot slower compared to the 4g in other countries.

Omg, with that price i can buy redmi K20 pro or one plus 7, very lol. 5 modem not yet stable and implanted all around the world but the modem 5G price make me sick at least

It also has ultra low latency, dual band Wifi, 4400 mah battery (24 hrs usage time) + Quick charge, 6GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt (God knows for what they need this), USB 3.1, etc. And it runs Mifi OS, (wtf?)!
They also mentioned enterprise grade security.
Still, like you said.. all this hardly adds up to something worth $650... (?)
At best I will give $150-200, given its exclusivity and all.

$650 sh+t I can get two Redmi K20 for the price or Huawei Mate 20 or Samsung Galaxy S10e, why pay so much for a technology which is a few years away from being mature let alone a useless device like this
LOL $35 & $80 for data plan.

A radio for 650 bocks! OMGNo, thanks you very mush!
Jokes apart, it does seem different from a normal dongle, it has a display, some data counter or something, and maybe a lot more within it.
Still when we're looking at $100 4G smartphones, I would say, pass.
Let the technology mature more.
The pricing situation for 5G devices as well as spectrum and equipment is ridiculous right now. Its going to take a couple of years for it to settle down.
