5G has worse range which you may know already. They are good for short range very high speed comm link with MIMO.
I already ditched that ISP.

From what I've been reading, the plan is to put 5G cells on telephone poles and street lights. The home customer would be issued a 5G modem with probably a small external antenna. The idea is, of course to find a way around 5G's distance and through-the-wall limitations. A major plus is that 5G devices would be fully backward compatible with 4G (LTE). It is infinitely cheaper for ISP's to hang 5G cells from a light pole than to tear up the street to bury fiber-optic cables. This is (I believe) why Google and AT&T are starting to cut back on their plans to install fiber everywhere. If the ISP's manage to get around 5G's limitations, fiber will become obsolete.

5G isn't really battery efficient  and yeah Fiber is expensive. But for people who download/upload heavily Fiber is helpful and 5G might not give you constant rated speed and it only advertises as 1Gbps Peak speed and not sustained speeds for N time duration.

Keep in mind I refer to the notion of using 5G for the home to compete against the current wire-based ISP. For mobile devices it's still a win-win situation: They'd use 5G whenever possible and simply revert back to LTE as the need arises. Serious problems would arise only if the devices were locked to 5G. Fortunately that won't be the case, it's already been confirmed.

For mobile users its a win-win situation.

Today, windows 10 x64 pro Redstone 5 v1809 (with the January updates) is available.
For Vasudev who is waiting for windows 7, I'll release an extra lite edition later.


As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5, netfx 4.7.2, dx9 (and 11) and many programs.
Note: in this edition you'll find much more programs like vlc, firefox, handbrake, silverlight, cdisplay (custom made edition of SF), Sumatra, Flashplayer+schockwave...
It's also activated by default.
Nothing was deleted in winsxs and to obtain such a size, install.wim was converted into esd.
As usual, It also contains 7zip 18.06, winrar 3.61, Treesize free, subtitles edit, Visual C++ Runtime Installer (All-In-One) v56...and the latest drivers.
list of the embedded drivers here (to be updated): https://justpaste.it/6golp
Nothing was removed except the useless recovery file winre.wim (but a script was run to remove the useless appx and provisioned packages. Hopefully they won't come back since the registry was updated too).
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Windows defender is disabled by default but can be re-enabled again via gpedit.msc.

and here is the link for a switch-less win10 activator (encrypted & automatic).
I encrypted it to store it more easily since some antivirus detect it as a virus. Disable your antivirus before executing the exe (it’s not a virus).
A few seconds later,it’s done.

Is it possible to open the ISO and execute the setup.exe in order to upgrade from an earlier version of Windows, or must it be installed clean? I'm asking because many times I tried unsuccessfully to upgrade from 1709 to 1803 using Windows Update. I finally upgraded to 1803 with Vasudev's copy using the setup.exe file. Maybe I can do the same with your copy of 1809.

In my opinion, it's possible.
But if I were you, I would do a clean install. Note that I don't even use it yet since I had other problems lately (I'm still using v1803).

I'm still using v1803 and kept scarface and mine RS5 ISOs in queue for those want Redstone 5. Those who wants no bloatware with UWP apps I install scarface's ISO and those who want stock W10 experience with slight tweaks and no useless UWP games and ad based apps I install mine.

Yes you can upgrade. Make sure to disconnect other HDDs/SSDs to prevent data deletion bug on upgrade install. Use dism++ and check all options and clean it up. After that, use setup.exe to upgrade to RS5 error free w/ clean install like experience.

Tonight, windows 7 x64 Professional SP1 extra lite Tunisia edition with the latest updates is available.

Some users of the forum like Vasudev were eagerly waiting for it.
As usual, it contains many reg tweaks, netfx 3.5 and netfx 4.7.2, dx9 (and 11) and many programs.
It was updated with the January 2019 updates, 7zip 18.06, winrar 3.61 full, Visual C++ Runtime Installer (All-In-One) v56...and the latest drivers.
list of the embedded drivers here (obsolete): https://justpaste.it/7id4j
The useless recovery file winre.wim and a few obsolete drivers (printers, mdm, wia) were deleted.
Fx sound enhancer was added (full version).
Note that harkaz's rebase was used to make it lighter (extreme cleanup). The program is available in %systemdrive% (at a time it wasn't free but harkaz may still find a donation useful, I advise you to contact him). Some useless content was also removed in the winsxs folder. It may cause problems for the future updates.

Only 2.95 Gb

If you have activation problems: https://mega.nz/#!PXZHTIzB!QUp86oPcQJkj4dBgctKa7aQB9KjlAHpjUblN6yUWr2E



Note that you can still download xp here (an updated, lite version of Maher’s edition which includes every update):
kb4012598 and wmp11 with its updates have been integrated. What’s more, some visual tweaks were applied as you can see on the screenshot below.
Finally, a few unneeded elements were removed (the list is available in the nlite log in the iso file).
Link: https://mega.nz/#!8NUmVCaQ!PzrY8hsTD5XRV8OoNaczvqxIqr_eOOxhHN8_obmbeqM




And Here is office 2007 with most updates, till August 2018 (it’s a switch-less installer).
https://mega.nz/#!zmpCHSzI!NRfwpk_B8zIa515gPIpKQarA3Ry50zuCAk_OcHjiqyc

And here is the MUI pack for office 2007. it includes many languages (notably French, German, italian, Japan, Russian, Arabic). With this pack you can change the user interface language of office 2007 by using the “Microsoft Office 2007 Language Settings”. It's practically impossible to find it today.
