5G Communications Comes of Age

By Roger S. Conrad on Dec. 8, 2020

If you’re underwhelmed so far by the next generation of wireless communications—dubbed 5G—you’re far from alone.

By any measure, this has been a year of exploding demand for fast and reliable connectivity with work, schooling and entertainment shifting to residences. Not one US communications company, however, has meaningfully broken down 5G adoption for investors, a fact reinforced by generally flat Q3 wireless revenue growth.

Another straw in the wind: Conservative Holding Comcast Corp (NSDQ: CMCSA) last month announced new home Internet data caps for its standard broadband plans in 14 states plus the District of Columbia. The cap of 1.2 terrabytes per month won’t affect most users. And the penalty for going over is relatively mild: A $10 charge for each additional 50 gigabytes of data used up to a maximum of $100.
