PM Prayut Chan-o-cha chairs the meeting of the 5G steering panel on Friday.

 

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Friday (August 14) endorsed in principle measures to promote 5G wireless broadband technology, deputy government spokesperson Ratchada Thanadirek said.

 

 

The approval came during the meeting of the national 5G steering panel that is chaired by the premier.

 

The measures include promoting the sharing of 5G infrastructure among telecom operators, termination of rules deemed to be an obstruction to the adoption of 5G technology and tax incentives for the rollout of the fibre optic network.

 

The meeting also approved pilot 5G projects.

Good to hear he's all for rolling out 5G, like it's some magical future thing. 

 

I have a 5G phone and am getting 5G service here in Hua Hin right now.  I stood right under the tower in the night market and got 800 mb/sec download speed!  Sitting in my condo about 500m away I still get 250 mb/sec, which is 5X the highest speed I can get out of 3BB DSL, they won't sell me fiber service.  As soon as I can get a 5G->Wifi dongle I'll mount it on my balcony and drop 3BB.

I just got it today. I don't know if it is really 5G but the Huawei router has 2.4G service for when you are using and standing pretty far away.....the other is 5G service for use in the house. I haven't seen any differences with 4G except maybe it is a bit quicker. 

I don't think I would have changed as my use on the computer is limited but I my last service provider really was hopeless. I have just come of having a 10 day spell with no service except using my phone as a hot spot. The outages with the previous provider were unacceptable long, frequent and there was zero response from the service crew....just twaddle about the network being maintained etc.

The 5G is the 5th generation of cellular network, not the 5 ghz band broadcast on your home router wifi network.

BitChute is a video hosting service known for accommodating far-right individuals and conspiracy theorists The platform was created in 2017 to allow video uploaders to avoid content rules enforced on YouTube, and some creators who have been banned from YouTube or had their channels barred from receiving advertising revenue ("demonetized") have migrated to BitChute. The Southern Poverty Law Center has said the site hosts "hate-fueled material".

Based on similar errant posts made here in the past, it's amazing how many forum members don't know or understand the difference between those two entirely different and unrelated things.  :whistling:
