Wrong and twice wrong!
New radio is boring for two reasons. The first is that is that it tells exactly the same more-bandwidth-for-your-buck story as 3G and 4G did previously -- only with less purpose. 

Wrong! The capabilties of NR and the technology within are both fascinating. And commercially very interesting.

What was your second point again?

Boring but necessary as a radio foundation to get to massive IoT, VR, connected whatever.

No cynic! No cynic! You're the cynic!
Don't blame service providers if users exercise their prerogative to mindlessly "upgrade" to the next big thing to feel better about themselves. It's a strategy that has worked wonders for Apple.

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
Won't LTE-M and NB-IoT do the IoT stuff, then?

You're right. Big corporations are never cynical.

Not in the volume that massive IoT is supposed to deliver, nope, and IoT has to be a volumes game in order to deliver revenues to operators.

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
This topic is worth of a blog in itself because it surely raises big questions about the longevity of those pre-5G technologies.

On the bright side, even if the MWC show floor is a bit ho-hum, the protests outside the hall should provide some excitement.

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
Well, LTE networks are still going to be run for consumer services for decades. 5G IoT isn't here yet, hasn't been fully defined, let alone commercialized. So I'd say LTE has a role for the foreseeable future.
Duh!
Duh!

Re: Wrong and twice wrong!
The fascinating and commercially interesting stuff is mm-wave band radios. I hope that we will learn more details about field trial results from the operators and vendors.
