I live in the Missouri Ozark hills and have spotty cell service. Now in St. Louis with 5G coverage. Wow.

Carry on.

Wait. 5G hasn't been rolled out yet as far as I know, and also what device do you have that could possibly work with 5G? Are you talking 4G aka LTE?

All I can tell you is my display shows 5GE and my download speed registers 140MPS. Whatever it is it beats my home coverage

Just like any city, stay outta the bad places. STL used to be pretty damn' safe , but anymore your head needs to be on a swivel. Sad because it is a nice place to visit.
