If You Don’t Know, Now You Know: 5G | The Daily Show


What is the deal with 5G? And why are the U.S. and China
going to war over it? Well, we’ll try
and break it down for you in our ongoing segment, “If You Don’t Know,
Now You know.” -♪ ♪
-(cheering, applause) So, what exactly is
the big deal about 5G? Because you might think it’s
just 4G but a little bit faster. But it’s actually a lot faster. So fast, in fact,
that it could change the world. NEWSMAN: The new world
of 5G technology promises to transform our lives,
connecting millions of devices and enabling everything
from driverless cars to smart homes. Up to 20 times faster
than the 4G most of us use now, 5G’s lightning-fast technology
will accelerate and interconnect everything. To download a two-hour film
on 3G would take about 26 hours. On 4G, you’d
be waiting six minutes. And on 5G, you’ll
be ready to watch your film in just over
three and a half seconds. Damn. You could download
an entire movie in three seconds. That’s gonna be fast. I mean,
we’ll still spend 45 minutes trying to decide
which movie to download… but once we’ve decided, we’ll need to go to bed
’cause we’re tired, but tomorrow,
three seconds, my friends! And 5G isn’t just
about download speeds. It’s a game changer
for everything. Like, with 5G,
you can have cities where everything communicates. Like, doctors
can perform surgeries from the other side
of the world. Can you imagine a world
where your videos never buffer? Right? Your calls never drop? That would be amazing. Except I guess
now you could never fake a call dropping with 5G. Yeah, ’cause
that excuse is gone. You’d be like, “Uh, uh,
I’m los… I’m losing… you’re breaking up.”
Be like, “Mother (bleep), you’re not breaking up!
We got 5G!” Be like,
“Yeah, yeah, you’re right. -Carry on, Grandma.”
-(laughter) Yes, my grandma
is Samuel L. Jackson. -(laughter)
-So… so, look, there’s no denying,
the technology is great. But… why do China and the U.S.
care so much about who makes it? Well, it’s the same reason
they care about anything: the Benjamins, baby. NEWSMAN: When the U.S. won the
4G race earlier this decade, it provided
a nearly $100 billion boost to gross domestic product. And the stakes of the 5G race
are even higher. If the U.S. wins,
it would create an estimated three million jobs and add approximately
$500 billion to GDP. That’s right,
if America wins the 5G race, that could bring millions
of jobs and $500 billion to the country’s GDP. $500 billion. You know how hard it is
to get $500 billion? Like, you’d have to marry and
divorce Jeff Bezos five times. -(laughter) -And I mean
after the fourth time, he’d probably catch on–
he’d be like, “I think you don’t love me.”
“What? Me, Jeff?” And the fight about 5G
isn’t just about money and downloading Avengers
like that. No, it’s also about power. Because if you control 5G,
you have access to everything people are doing online,
which is everything. And right now,
the best 5G technology is made by a Chinese company
called Huawei. And because the Chinese company is Chinese… many governments don’t trust
how secure it’s gonna be. NEWSMAN: Huawei may be
best known to most people for making phones,
but it’s also a leading player in building the infrastructure
for all our communications. Critics fear that
allowing it to build 5G could enable
the Chinese state to spy on or even switch off
the flow of data we will all depend on. Imagine that. If Huawei becomes the leading
5G provider in the world, then China can spy
on everyone, which is terrible, because that’s what America
wants to do. Yeah. And I know you’re judging. “Well, if America wants to do
it, then how do they judge…?” That’s not the point, all right. You want to do it first. It’s like when you cut someone
off in traffic and then someone else cuts
in front of you, you’re like, “Hey, asshole,
that was my move!” But those are the stakes:
job, money and power. And I’m not gonna try
and bore you with all the technical details, but while America is developing
its own 5G, China’s 5G is so far ahead. Like, they’re basically
gonna set the trends. It’s like how back in the day
there used to be a fight between DVD
and laser disk. Yeah. And if you’re wondering,
“What the hell is laser disk?” Exactly, yeah. That’s America’s 5G. So this is a race many people are already saying
America has lost. Luckily– and I can’t believe
I’m saying this– America is lucky that you have
a maniac on your team who’s willing to play dirty. President Trump has signed
an executive order banning U.S. companies
from using telecom equipment deemed to be
a national security threat. And that’s a direct shot
at China and its tech giant Huawei. TV REPORTER: As the U.S. clamp
down on the company causes a major domino effect, the
U.K.’s biggest mobile network pulling Huawei
from its 5G launch, while three of Japan’s
mobile operators have stopped taking orders,
or delayed the summer release of a new Huawei phone. Donald J. Mother-effing-Trump. This guy could see America
wasn’t gonna win, so he just got a crowbar and pulled a Tonya Harding
on China’s 5G. Just went in straight there. Yeah, the man might not know
what 5G is, but he does know how to mess up
other people’s shit. Just in there. Bam! (cheers and applause) And I’m gonna be honest
with you. I don’t actually blame
Donald Trump, because I don’t know how else
America can win this race. Because even if America
does manage to cripple Huawei and China, it’s not like America
will suddenly have great 5G. All right, you won’t just have
5G overnight. Unless… America just pretends
that it does. TV REPORTER: AT&T is putting
a fake 5G logo on iPhones and iPads now. The company confirming
to PC Magazine the the new icon is gonna
show up when users download Apple’s latest beta version
of iOS 12.2. But it’s not really 5G. AT&T just changed the name for its 4G LTE Advanced network
to 5GE. The “e” stands for evolution. (laughter) Okay, guys, that… That’s really sad. AT&T is just gonna lie
and put another sticker– Like, it’s like
you have a Smart car, and then you just tape
Lamborghini on the side of it. “Check it out, man,
I’m driving a Lambo now. Zero to 60
in four minutes flat.” But… Seeing as it’s a race
that might be lost, AT&T might be on
to something here. Because this is considered
the new space race. So maybe America
can win this race the same way it won
the last one: Just fake it, baby.

  1. Europe won’t use Huawai’s 5g, because they think it’s getting spies and they trust more in the US than in China 💁🏼‍♂️ sooo I think even if china wins the “race”, ain’t nobody would use it 👏🏼
    Greets from Germany 🙂
    (Sorry if i made a des mistakes .. pleas correct me ;D)

  2. ANY country with the means will inevitably spy on everyone so people should stop pinning the blame on China alone.

  3. Everything he does betrays the ideals of our nation, Hey, and if ya don’t know, now ya know, Mr. President…

    -Lin Manuel Miranda, Hamilton

  4. It is worth pointing out that 4G is not going to disappear once 5G goes public. While 5G is really fast, the signal range is actually really short and it can be blocked by things like glass, walls, and even your hand. Most of the US will still rely on 4G in areas where 5G isn't available.

  5. Why did the United States suppress Huawei?
    Us Department of Defense: "5G ecosystem: risks and opportunities for the US Department of Defense" report

    Spectrum allocation is the core of 5G competition. For optional spectrum bands, whether Sub-6 or millimeter wave, it will affect all aspects of 5G development. The spectral band between 3Ghz and 4Ghz dominates global 5G activity because the propagation range of 3Ghz and 4Ghz is improved compared with millimeter wave spectrum, and the same coverage and performance can be provided with fewer base stations. Because most of the Sub-6 band in the United States is not civilian and commercial, American operators and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which controls the civil spectrum of the United States, regard millimeter wave spectrum as the core of 5G in China.
    Us operators may continue to explore millimeter waves, but without followers, they are unlikely to lead in 5G. The leadership of wireless networks requires the global market to recognize and comply with the spectral band specifications developed by leaders, as these 5G subcomponents and products will eventually facilitate cross-network interworking. Compared with American operators, other parts of the world do not have the same problem of Sub-6 band limitation, so they will seek 5G development in this range. As a result, if the US continues to explore spectrum ranges that are different from the rest of the world, it may find itself without a global supply chain base.

    If the future 5G ecosystem adopted by most countries in the world is based on Sub-6 intermediate frequency spectrum, the United States will also face the challenge of millimeter wave equipment universality and Sub-6 infrastructure security. As Sub-6 becomes the global standard, China, which is currently a leader in this field, is likely to be the leader at this stage. This will pose a security risk to the Ministry of Defense's overseas operations, which rely on a network of Chinese components in the supply chain. Even if the United States restricts the domestic use of products from Chinese equipment suppliers, the market size of the United States in the wireless field is not large enough to prevent Chinese 5G suppliers from continuing to increase their market share around the world. As a result, it will put great pressure on a group of suppliers who will serve the American market. Due to declining market share and quantitative constraints imposed by competitive products, better and cheaper global supply chains for the US Department of Defense and US industry are likely to be deprived, leaving US suppliers unable to invest in future 5G products.

    China plans to deploy the first widely used 5G network, and its first Sub-6 network services will be put into use in 2020. The first-mover advantage is likely to drive significant growth in the market for smartphone and telecommunications equipment suppliers as well as domestic semiconductor and system suppliers. As a result, Chinese Internet companies will develop services and applications based on 5G speed and low latency performance for their domestic markets. With 5G deployed globally in similar frequency bands, China's smartphone and Internet applications and services are likely to dominate, even if they are excluded from the US market. China's development in 5G will repeat the glory of the United States in 4G.

  7. Its incredible the amount of dumbass brainwashed trump supporters who think that 5G causes cancer like wtf it was already used in the UAE. When I tell them they never believe me its almost sad

  8. Just fake it baby XD the yankees gonna be the laughing stock of planet earth in history books once the cowboy nation collapse.

  9. USSR was a far ahead with their space technology but could not land to moon, US was behind but landed in 1969. But Still with 2019 space technology hard to do moon landing. Maybe just fake it again baby!

  10. This 5th generation technology will ultimately become apart of the one world government…. Edit: It's all looking innocent now..

  11. This is nothing more than propaganda put out by telecom companies. 5g is a serious problem for the health of everyone and everything on this planet. Look into who developed this, as well as the “active denial system” and “voice to skull technology”. This should give you an idea of what you’re dealing with

  12. $500 billion is about the amount that the US national debt is currently growing every six months. Do you remember how Trump promised that he would pay back the entire $22 trillion debt in eight years? Instead he is increasing it like there was no tomorrow.

  13. Hahaha.. You are awesome man.. And we are waiting for Huawei 5g..coz it seems American company is expert in faking.. Hahaha

  14. It's funny that when you show in the top left corner the cell phone towers they're NOT 5G Towers

    The picture you guys show or NOT 5G Towers

  15. This guy's not a comedian he's a f**** puppet he's a f**** corporate spokesperson he's a goddamn salesperson he is literally the used car salesman that you f**** hate and walk away from at the car dealership when you go to buy a car and walks up and says hey how you doing today and you say I'm just looking

    This … is… that … guy. #Worse

  16. please shed the light over story of 21 year old plastine girl Israa Ghareeb killed by her family because she met her finace and post short video in her account . her family saw the video and beat her to death . Honor killing in arab world still very common . help to stop violence against women

  17. No no no Trevor..China ,doesn't have 5G. Has anyone seen it? Tried it? No it is not possible..They only pretend to have it..Don't forget;chienese poeple is most dangerous trader in the World..They can try everything possible to win ..This is only a trick to enter into mind of americans to belive that dream..And afterwards to be in a hurry to make it happen also in America while the things are not yet ready and at the end; big failor…This is a big trap..

  18. He is dam anti American. He is so ignorant of China that Hawui is run by CCP (Chinese communist party ) and CCP is like mafia group run by big corrupt families.

  19. Uh 5G is dangerous not on the spying front but on our health. The intensity of radiation of emf…is not worth saving a few minutes of time.

  20. Lol while America is trying to win the race to 5g my apartment complex because of AT&T contracts with the owner cock blocks any Verizon installer from coming onto the property to install 5g lol. That’s America for ya. We will win the race by preventing renters from getting It from any company that has it already when they can’t provide it lol. Verizon we love you lol. AT&T is not American lol. It’s anti progress

  21. U all media listen to me very carefully all one eye triangle must be remove from Hollywood and from Bollywood and all gay bisexual people should be banned from Bollywood or Hollywood or peoples will die trump is my new white dog and u all know how crazy he is and i am more crazy then trump so beware of what u people do

  22. I am Brazilian and I welcome my new Chinese Overlords. The hope for the developing world, America just ruined us again. Thank you China for not letting America just take the planet.

  23. Hey,congratulation!Your video has appeared in our China news network, and you have been known by nearly 1.4 billion people! ! !😀😀😀
    祝贺祝贺,你的视频成功出现在我们中国的新闻联播上,你已经被将近14亿人知道了!!!😀😀😀

  24. Have you heard of dihydrogen monoxide most people haven't heard of h20 but I'm an expert on it and I know it and the region it's in very tremendously and bigLy well

  25. Huawei did get so big on the backs of China stealing tech. Swedish Eriksson will probably launch first in the US. And will probably win the market.

  26. This host tries to be funny but he's not. Even with his condescending attitude, he explains little why 5G is apparently such a big deal.

  27. I Mariekondoed my digital life by getting rid of my smartphone and getting a small Nokia brick phone with 2G instead. Never been happier.

  28. Last month i threw my iphone and bought a huawei… cheaper and 10x better than the iphone.. let the chinese spy i don't think my music search or my chat with my friends could be used as power 😂😂😂😂

  29. Finally, no more buffering on cat videos.

    Pinnacle of civilization has been achieved, nothing left to do now but kick back and giggle till the end!

  30. Laser Disk literally came out in the early 80's though, those disks were larger than actual Frisbees. They were 20 years ahead of, and didnt compete with DVD's.

  31. Final Justice: Soon, USA will be able to spy ONLY on its own citizens, and leave the rest of the world in Peace!!! USA = a bad loser, always done the same in the past… I have the highest respect of losers, but no respect for BAD losers…

  32. I still can't believe that one of my American friends told me that in the place she lived, the service provider still providing 3G networks because many American Service Providers think it can't make any profits in these places.

  33. Telia Finland teams with Nokia for 5G FWA launch, offers 5G subscriptions  https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/telia-finland-teams-nokia-for-5g-fwa-launch-offers-5g-subscriptions  5G rollout program in Finland, including offers for mobile and home broadband 5G subscriptions and devices.

    Telia Finland is initially offering 5G service in Helsinki, Vantaa and Oulu, with plans to hit the country’s seven largest cities by the end of 2019. Further coverage expansion is slated for 2020.

    “We have started a 5G network rollout program in the biggest Finnish cities and will bring the best devices to our customers. Now is the perfect time to start offering services to all customers,” said Janne Koistinen, 5G Program Manager for Telia Finland, The operator’s first 5G handsets are the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G. In terms of 5G fixed wireless access (FWA), Nokia announced Telia’s residential customers in Finland can get a Nokia Fastmile 5G gateway in select stores, promising access to in-home gigabit peak speeds. Telia expects Nokia’s FWA gateway to be available to consumers at the end of October and the operator will also offer Huawei’s 5G CPE Pro router.
