I just bought an i phone 12 with a 2 year contract and I am just patiently waiting for them to relase 5G i mean its been almost a year since Rogers released their 5G network so you think it would be coming soon for Fido? Back in 2011 Rogers released their LTE network in July 2011 and Fido released it a year later in July 2012 so im just curious if 5G will possibly be on Fido networks before the new year, becuase i am patiently waiting for this.

Rogers being a premium provider and the parent company of Fido rolled out to their customers as soon as they finished the installation of the technology. It isn't known yet if we will get 5g in the near future. As Fido doesn't announce what may be in the works, it could come in the next year or 5 years down the road. The offerings are what distinguish the premium carriers from the tier 2 carriers.
