Rogers now has 5G home internet. I wonder when they will offer 5G TV?

@mdk  I am sure it isn’t for everyone, but it will likely be the only option in years to come. For now, a switch would work if someone needed more ports, or stick with cable internet if they need more speed.

@rstra -- the "Nokia FastMile 5G Home Internet device" has only 2 LAN ports, in addition to WiFi capability. For some customers, that may not be enough LAN ports (e.g., just 1 computer, and 1 networked printer).

As to "when", no current Rogers employee will violate company policy, to give you an answer, if they want to stay employed. Of course, if you have personal contact with a Rogers team-member that is developing "5G-TV", maybe they can  drop you a hint about "when" and "where" it will be first rolled-out.

@rstra wrote need more speed ...

A footnote on the Rogers web-site states:  

500 GB at download speeds of up to 100Mbps and upload speeds of up to 10Mbps.

After exceeding 500 GB, download speeds of up to 10 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 2Mbps.

When streaming, download speeds of up to 3 Mbps, good for videos up to 720p HD. 

So, stick to Internet via coaxial-cable, if those speeds/limits are insufficient for your needs/wants.

Ya, I think this is probably Rogers testing the water.
