Ok...I created a 5G 802.11a hotspot using my Raspberry Pi 3B+, and my Quest connects to it without issue. The connection is better than the 5G signal from my modem from my provider. But...in an interview with Jason Ruben, he says himself that the Quest doesn't
GamesBeat: Things like 5G coming along, does that make a difference? Or is wi-fi fast enough for any application?
Rubin: Quest is a wi-fi device. It doesn’t have a 5G chip in it. In the future, could 5G be good for VR? Yes. Although using VR outside of your home or a space that’s generally going to have wi-fi, probably not a massive use case. I’m not sure I’d recommend it on uneven surfaces, like in a park or something. It definitely could help. 5G is great. It’s very fast. I’m not sure it’s a game-changer, because most people have wi-fi where they’d use their VR headsets.
So...is Ruben just mistaken then? My hotspot is definitely a 5G signal, as my phone is only 2.4G, and the 5G doesn't show up in the list.
