Will the shopping websites make my eyes bleed, like Rakuten and Yahoo!?

South Korea already using 5G

That's not a good thing according to users in South Korea:

"I bought a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone, but it seems like the 5G services are still in the experimental stage," said Choi Ji-na, an office worker in Seoul.

Some have criticised Japan because there's no 5G service available until next year, however they fail to note that current 5G services in both the US and South Korea are flaky at best. What's the point of having 5G if it drops out and reverts back to 4G more often than not?

Japan is simply hanging back until a proper 5G service can be offered with all the support and coverage users expect from a world class network, not some patchy, hastily launched network which might as well be called '4.5G'.

I was pointing to the SK 5G network more to counter the claim it will rupture body cells at an alarming rate. I have not heard of any cases.

You haven't heard anything because they've only had patchy service since April this year... I'm sure it will be quite some time before any actual damning evidence surfaces.

Part of this puzzle is to show data which shows 5G is proven safe-there isn’t any.

The evidence I have seen is pretty dire so far.

Try to counter my claim though...please!
