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