The 4th edition of the 5G Tariff Tracker covers pricing for 40 countries and over 91 operators across the globe. Detailed information such as price in local currency and Euros, inclusive allowances, speeds, Value-added, and how 5G pricing compares with 4G pricing is provided in an easy-to-use format. Additionally, there is an analysis provided in PowerPoint – 28 slides – comparing the new services launched and provide analysis across all offerings. The Research finds that different approaches have been taken: Charging a premium for 5G, with some waiving the charge for some months.Launching a completely new set of price plans.Other charge the same as for 4G, make 5G only available to the upper-priced plans.Make 5G available to the prepaid market, though very few operators.Download speeds are as high as up to 2 Gbps, with the most common average advertised download speed now being 1,000 Mbps.The majority of 5G plans are still based on data consumed rather than on download speed.The highest 5G price levels are to be found in the Middle East though also have the highest mobile data allowances.MVNOs and sub-brand start to offer 5G to their client base. 5G services are still at an emergent stage, with network coverage, the availability and the purchase cost of handsets acting as barriers to mass-market deployment. The deployment of 5G already has been surprisingly widespread when compared with the early stage of 4G LTE. In 2021, 5G is soon poised to enter the mainstream as more MNOs offer lower-cost entry-level packages and the availability of lower-cost 5G smartphones starts to improve later in 2020. These two trends have the potential to make 5G the transformative technology of the year.

Phish is no stranger to the Garden, having now played the famed venue in the heart of New York City 35 times over the course of their career. From their MSG debut in 1994 to their most recent appearances at the very beginning of 2016, the storied room has played host to some of the most treasured shows in the band’s history. As we inch closer to this year’s New Year’s Run, we will be bringing you our 12 Days Of Phishmas series, highlighting a different milestone MSG Phish show each day until we all head back to the Garden on the 28th. It wasn’t easy narrowing 35 down to 12, but we think you’ll be pleased with these classics from the Phish catalog. Enjoy! On the sixth day of Phishmas, we look at the band’s lone performance at Madison Square Garden during the “2.0” era of their career. After announcing their first hiatus at the end of 2000, the band announced that their return to the public eye would fall on New Year’s Eve of 2002. While fans tend to overlook the shows played during the early 2000’s, there’s truly something to be said about, not only making a triumphant return, but making it at Madison Square Garden, with three new songs in tow.The music in the Garden certainly enhanced the mood, as tracks like the “Welcome Back Kotter” theme, “The Boys Are Back In Town” and more greeted fans through the PA system. The music built up the anticipation, and the band’s appearance on stage set the crowd into an uproar. The band, meanwhile, responded with a show-opening “Piper” to hit the ground running. All systems go, Phish was back and ready to rage.Watch a short video compilation highlighting Phish’s return to the stage, below.The first set continued with classics from the catalog, like the ugly pig “Guyute” and upbeat numbers like “NICU” and “Horn.” Perhaps the biggest moment from the first set came during “Wilson,” when the band introduced “Tom Hanks” on stage in reference to his recent appearance in the movie Castaway, and his volleyball of the same name. While major media outlets hilariously reported that Hanks had appeared on stage with Phish, the man in question was none other than Steve McConnell, brother to Phish’s Page McConnell. Hilarious!The set continued with the first “Mound” since 1996, followed by the ballad “The Squirming Coil” and a jammed out rendition of “David Bowie” which featured references to the musical theme of “Dave’s Energy Guide.” After the short break, Phish would return with their debut version of the song “Waves,” treating fans to the first new Phish song in years. They kept the music flowing by segueing into “Divided Sky”, and kept the set upbeat with a number of classics from their catalog.Set three featured more new music, as the band debuted their new snowy tune “Seven Below” just a few minutes before midnight. As the song played, a giant disco ball lowered from the MSG scoreboard, and dancers clad in all white descended onto the stage, and subsequently into the crowd. The snowy New Year’s celebration was capped by the release of white snow-like soap and balloons, showering the crowd in a sea of snow before playing the traditional “Auld Lang Syne.”The night was far from over, however, as the band segued into a mean “Runaway Jim” to give the jam fans some loving. Interestingly, the band brought “Jim” into a cover of Little Feat’s “Time Loves A Hero”, and kept things fun with performances of “Taste” and “Strange Design” to wind down the third set. Finally, Phish made their third song debut of the night, playing the new original song “Walls Of The Cave” to close out the third set.After “Wading In The Velvet Sea,” Phish left the stage, with fans feeling stronger than ever about the band’s return. While the “2.0 era” would only last until 2004, those feelings of triumphant return have certainly carried over to the current time, where Phish is as healthy and happy as they’ve ever been. 12/31/02 remains a testament to the reunion of Phish, and with three new songs in the mix, serves as one of their most memorable at Madison Square Garden.Listen to the full audio via fromtheaquarium, and check out the Phish.net setlist below.Phish | Madison Square Garden | New York, NY | 12/31/2002Set 1: Piper, Guyute, NICU, Horn, Wilson, Mound, The Squirming Coil > David BowieSet 2: Waves > Divided Sky, Lawn Boy, Carini, Rift, Harry Hood > Character ZeroSet 3: Sample in a Jar, Seven Below > Auld Lang Syne > Runaway Jim -> Time Loves a Hero, Taste, Strange Design, Walls of the Cave ENCORE: Wading in the Velvet Sea Castaway intro and “Tom Hanks” guest appearance. Debut.Phish returned from their hiatus with their first public show since October 7, 2000. The pre-show music alluded to the end of the hiatus with such songs as the theme from Welcome Back Kotter, Feels Like the First Time, Back in the Saddle Again, Reunited, and The Boys are Back in Town. The final selection was Foreplay/Long Time, during which time the band took the stage. Piper included a Low Rider tease. Prior to Wilson, a scene from the Tom Hanks movie Cast Away was played in the arena (referring to Hanks’ character searching for his volleyball/companion named Wilson). Trey subsequently introduced Hanks to sing the final lyric. Major news media reported the Hanks appearance, but the guest singer was actually Page’s brother, Steve McConnell. Mound was played for the first time since November 19, 1996 (276 shows). Bowie included a DEG tease. This show included the debuts of Waves, Seven Below and Walls of the Cave. Appropriately, Seven Below began about seven minutes before midnight. During the song, the crew lowered a disco ball from the scoreboard and created a “snowfall” on stage. Dancers dressed in white as snow creatures took the stage and circled the band before dispersing into the crowd. Some of the dancers ascended ladders and donned stilts to become snow angels. At midnight, white balloons and confetti were dropped on the crowd. A dwarf remained on each front corner of the stage, popping balloons, while the snow angels continued to dance. Runaway Jim contained a Weekapaug tease from Page. Time Loves a Hero was last played August 11, 1998 (or 151 shows). Walls included a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. The evening was capped with perfect post-show music: Let’s Stay Together. Unfinished. Antelope-esque jamming. James Bond Theme tease from Mike.

Last Friday, Eric He penned a column in the Daily Trojan about sportswriters and athletes being told to “stick to sports” in today’s tumultuous political climate.“Yes, athletes are committed to sports, as are those who write about them,” he wrote. “But we can — and should — treat ourselves and, likewise, be treated as so much more. Never just ‘stick to sports.’ Please, never do.”Given that He is the associate managing editor of the Daily Trojan (and my boss), I don’t want to step on his toes too much … but he’s wrong. I’m not an advocate of some codified separation of sport and state, and I certainly don’t believe players and writers should be barred from voicing their political opinions. Having said that, I also believe sports are at their most effective — and affective — when their crossover with the so-called “real world” is kept to a minimum.I remember the moment when sports impacted my life the most: It was a regular season NHL game between the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins on April 17, 2013. I don’t remember too much of what transpired on the ice — only that Boston lost and not a soul in New England cared.I do remember the pregame ceremonies, though, as a shell-shocked region filed into the TD Garden and tuned in on TV to watch the first local sporting event following the Boston Marathon bombing. The manhunt for the terrorists responsible was still ongoing, and people were overwhelmed by fear, grief and utter bewilderment. An overly emotional Rene Rancourt was unable to belt out his usual rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” in the arena, so the crowd helped him. A 20,000 person choir performed the national anthem that night, ending with defiant chants of “USA! USA!”Then we wiped away our tears and forgot about it all for a few hours while watching men crash into each other at high speeds on ice.To me, this is sports at their best. Because as hard as we all rep our favorite teams or poke fun at the Warriors blowing a 3-1 lead, sports unite people. Even before that night in the Garden, teams around Major League Baseball had begun playing Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” the Boston Red Sox’s seventh inning stretch anthem, at their games to show support for the city. The team that came up with the idea to do that? The New York Yankees. Signs littered Yankee Stadium: “YANKEE FANS LOVE BOSTON.”When I look back on how much sports helped heal New England in 2013 (the Red Sox won the World Series, and the Bruins made a run to the Stanley Cup Final), it’s easy to forget how politically charged the Marathon bombing was. The fallout from the terrorist attack predictably included more fear mongering about the Islamic State, and Rolling Stone angered millions by plastering the murderer on its front cover. Some wanted the bomber burned at the stake; others thought he was a sympathetic victim of radical propaganda. Sports provided a distraction from the anger. I was already a Yankee fan before arriving in New England, but I’ll admit it was sweet to see the Red Sox celebrate their championship with “B STRONG” emblazoned the outfield grass behind them. Boston felt strong indeed.Things feel different now in the Trump era. If that Bruins’ pregame ceremony took place today, would a player sit on the bench during the anthem in protest? If President Donald Trump threw out a first pitch — like President George W. Bush did post-9/11 during the 2001 World Series — would he be booed? Would players or coaches speak out against Trump’s presence? Unlike sports, politics are inherently divisive, and the deeper divisions Trump brings are threatening to hang over sporting events as a four-year shadow.This is what I’m afraid of: not that athletes, coaches and sportswriters aren’t “staying in their lane” by speaking out politically, but that their trend will soon turn sporting figures into political figures, too. Such a trend would rob sports of what I cherish most about them. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has inextricably linked himself to the anti-national anthem crusade, and no matter where he plays next season, that will follow him. All of a sudden, rooting for Kaepernick’s team unavoidably aligns you with his movement to some degree, which is fine with some, but not with others. The same goes for Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr and his many passionate objections to Trump and his policies. In other words, sports are slowly becoming a springboard into political arguments — and that’s my nightmare.Of course, without politics mixing with sports, Jackie Robinson may have never broken the color barrier in Major League Baseball. You might even say that the sports world’s response to the Boston Marathon bombing was a type of political stance. So I’m not going to sit here and join the chants of “stick to sports.” But the rare occasions in which sports crossed into politics are now becoming far too common, and instead of healing and bringing people together, sports are now drawing fresh dividing lines.Whether it comes to athletes, coaches or sportswriters like myself, let’s be careful. We should never be afraid to speak out about what we care about, but we also shouldn’t equate that boldness with an invitation to play Chuck Todd. We all hear enough every single day about how the world is burning to the ground. Tuning into a ballgame is our amazing escape from all that. Let’s keep that in mind and keep sports great.Oliver Jung is a junior studying print and digital journalism. He is also the sports editor of the Daily Trojan.
