Only 500m range....that’s very short indeed! No wonder the Comms code is forcing landowners to accept peanut rents in exchange for mast locations. As said, I can’t see it making it to many rural areas on that basis.With a range of 500m I can’t see it’s going to be a benefit to uk ag especially seeing as 3G isn’t reliable yet in many places.
It’s only going to be good for crunching data offsite, processing automation, processing images for identification using offsite hardware sort of thing. Not good when the automatic tractor gets behind a tree and shuts down!!
Are there any other uses in ag for this technology?
5G hype is off the charts and is distracting attention away from necessary work to get decent broadband speeds to exiting rural areas. The fibre roll out in Wales has been a monumental cockup and financial scandal that is not being investigated. some details on this hereOnly 500m range....that’s very short indeed!

Is it 5G or 5G though? I ask this because what is being called 5G by some is not the actual 'internet of everything 5G operating at a similar frequency to microwave ovens and about which there is much justifiable concern. Is big tech trying to pull a fast one by muddying the waters and slipping the far more harmful version in under the radar at a later date, referring to it as a mere 'upgrade' or some such lie? I wouldn't put it past them.Anyone on it yet ? Was offered a EE upgrade yesterday when sorting my SIM problem
Apparently we have coverage
Worth it ?
The questions are being answered alright, but not to the liking of the money men and big tech generally.Many unanswered questions on 5G particularly on the potential health issues. Also with the much shorter wavelengths there need to be many more antennae as the range is much shorter.
We had something similar when switching broadband providers, what the feck is going on?Not sure about 5G . I had a tech. advisor on the phone re a bit of a router fault . When he'd finished , my router had a 5g tag to it . when I asked him about this , he said "Ah yes , It's not the same 5g as a phone 5g (?)
They refer to two completely different things.Not sure about 5G . I had a tech. advisor on the phone re a bit of a router fault . When he'd finished , my router had a 5g tag to it . when I asked him about this , he said "Ah yes , It's not the same 5g as a phone 5g (?)
Just basic physics.We have a WiFi link between 2 buildings. The second unit provides wifi coverage to the yard
Just got 300 mps broadband in & the 2.4mhz units are rated at 10 /100.
Upgraded to 5mhz units which are 10/100/1000 so can deal with the faster speed.
Almost no speed drop at computer at other end over the link, however noticed that the wifi signal in the yard was not as good.
When I enquired it seems 5mhz wifi is not as good at penetrating buildings & other obstacles
Isn`t progress great
The main limitation is not as good range as 2.4 GHzI know, but they make out 5GHZ is the dog`s bo***cks , when in fact it has it`s weaknesses
