Faster doesn’t always mean faster

This hit me as kind of interesting when I realized it — the coming 5G cell phone speeds will be identical to every previous cell technology (4G, 3G, etc) that came before it. Radio waves travel at the speed of light, so there’s no getting any “faster”. The difference is in the throughput, or the amount of data being carried along those waves.
