Is 5G SAFE?
Apple is reportedly in ‘advanced’ talks to buy Intel’s modem division for $1 billion or more
Apple is in advanced talks to buy Intel’s 5G modem division, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The deal could be announced as soon as next week, according to the report.
A purchase would show Apple’s willingness to consider large acquisitions with its war chest of cash.

This was to be expected, just like high performance SSD controllers heat up with high speed NVME drives, high speed network controllers - and the internal flash controllers, will draw a lot of power and generate a lot heat to handle the much higher speeds 5G is capable of:

We Tested 5G Across America. It’s Crazy Fast—and a Hot Mess
In tests, the 5G often switched off due to summer heat, leaving our columnist to cool the devices with ice packs or air conditioners
I wonder how 5G MiFi's will handle this, considering their constrained cooling capabilities.
Netgear is developing a model for this purpose: https://blog.netgear.com/blog/netge...dards-based-millimeter-wave-mobile-5g-device/
As always early purchases get retired as technology improves and standards are re-written or extended.
Cooling is going to be very important in base stations too, so I hope they realize that in the design and implementation, otherwise we'll need to help them along.
ATT hasn't been the best at openness about their 5g actualities, I hope this offers full spectrum support for all 5G, but what is the ethernet link speed to connect to devices? I hope it's 10G...5G?...2.5G? 1G? Or is it 5G to Wifi only? I hope it has Ethernet too.
"The NETGEAR Nighthawk® 5G Mobile Hotspot is the first standards-based mobile 5G device in the world able to access a live millimeter wave 5G network. AT&T plans to be the first to introduce mobile 5G services in the U.S. this year, doing so using our Nighthawk® 5G Mobile Hotspot. Stay tuned for more information on our latest mobile hotspot late this year."
Good point, considering how opaque most carriers tend to be on the fine details.
AT&T 5G - AT&T Foundry, here's a VR use case proposed by the AT&T Foundry.
AT&T The Foundry 5G Wireless
Published on Jul 31, 2019
AT&T's The Foundry showcases how 5G will drive wireless gameplay in VR. Utilizing the Vive Focus Plus VR Headset, I get a glimpse of the near future. Getting to be immersed in The Blu, The Whale Experience by WEVR and become The Dark Knight in Batman Arkham. The speed of 5G means that I get the same level of gameplay without having to be tethered to an expensive computer.
I can only dream about it. Very rarely I reach advertised 4G LTE speeds. For sustained speeds, I found standard Wired internet OFC to be better and consistent if LTE signals are bad because of bad weather!
