    You can drive as fast as you want. But you only get 2 gallons of gas each month.

    So are you suggesting that these plans and rates will transition to the 5G platform, or do you believe like I do that 5G will have its own pricing schedules?

    Good point. I was going on the assumption though that 4G to 5G is such big move they would keep it as is own platform and charge a premium considering just how many millions of 4G phone's are out there that can't take advantage of 5G.

    I can see both sides. Same when 4g deployed. There were what, 10 markets, with it?

    We are a couple years out and the tech is unknown. Verizon used 700mhz for 4g. Will they use 1700/1900? I assumed 5G was going to be a beefed up XLTE deployment.

    All this talk of 5G reminds me of this commercial. Anyone else remember this one?
