What I don't get is, these high number CAT chips in year old phones are mass produced, so are not expensive chips, So why are they not also put in current routers?
I mean my current mobile a 2018 Honor 8x is even cat 12, so what possible reason is there for carriers to give out Cat 6 routers in 2020?
At a risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, maybe they don't want home broadband LTE customers to have a really fast connection and hammer every single mast's bandwidth? They know folks with 5g and 4g mobiles will mostly just use data in a bursty fashion regardless of how high end (higher CAT level) it is. So could it be done deliberately to hobble home users?
