2 5G Isn’t Going to Come Cheap
Advancements in technology don’t usually come cheap — and 5G connectivity isn’t going to be any different. We don’t have any exact details on pricing since carriers and OEMs have been tight-lipped about their future offerings. Just expect to pay a premium for a 5G contract (likely with lower data caps) at the majority of carriers.
That’s not even considering the fact that you’ll need a 5G-capable smartphone to connect to those networks. You won’t be able to use your existing smartphone on 5G networks, and the new one you’ll have to buy is likely going to be even more expensive. Again, we don’t have many details on the first 5G-enabled devices, but a price tag of $1,000 or even more is pretty likely.
