No, I have not purchased a new phone, supposedly it is available in this area. I don't understand the technology enough, I thought the 5G frequencies did not travel long distances.  You needed more TX/RX for it to work, it wasn't made for rural areas.  I will keep my current Pixel phone as long as I can.  That being said I am almost sure Google is fucking with the battery. After Google's 5G phones were released my phone's battery life dropped significantly.

5G in a lot of areas is bogus, because they simply stole 4G spectrum in order to say they've got it....

I think so, this area is rural enough, there are many dead spots.  The 5G maps state 5G is available in the area but I do not see any towers.  I thought 5G could only travel 1000 feet or so.

5G with 4G rollback.

Seems like it would be a lot easier if the carriers federated their networks, like they do in some parts of the world. Let every cell take connections for every participating carrier.

I'm not upgrading until 6G or maybe 7G come out.
