mmWave Madness: No, you’re not crazy!

mmWave Madness!Ah, 5G… It’s a mixture of new technologies, the most “interesting” being mmWave, or millimeter wave.

If you’re wondering if a particular phone actually HAS mmWave, good luck figuring it out.

Even worse, in most areas it’s darn near impossible to find out what flavor of 5G is being used: Is it mmWave, or not?!

Let it warm up during the day or when you’re not at home. If you’re really hot, turn it way, WAY down and it’ll magically cool faster!

How you use your A/C depends on who you listen to…  And on that front, you probably want to listen to the people who design, install, and maintain A/C.

Because while scientific theories are great, practical realities back down here on Earth are better!
