There will be high band but also low band,

this article says t-mobile is already working on it operating in the 600mhz:
http://www.telecompetitor.com/t-mobile-5g-plans-dissent-from-rivals-understanding-mobile-5g-at-600-mhz/
and higher frequencies for faster speeds in as many places as they can install it.

Importantly, both AT&T and Verizon plan to use high-band spectrum for the fixed launches, which – in theory at least — should enable them to deliver more bits per hertz in comparison with what T-Mobile can achieve in the 600 MHz band. And that raises an interesting question: Which is the better evolutionary path to 5G – offering fixed service in frequencies capable of supporting higher bandwidth and then migrating to mobile service or, instead, offering mobile service in frequency bands that don’t support the highest bandwidth and then migrating to frequencies that do?
The industry will be watching closely for the answer as all three carriers move ahead with their 5G plans.

Are you confusing 5G cellphone signals with 5 GHZ wi-fi signals?  

I agree, 5 GHZ wi-fi is common these days.  I don't think 5G cellphones are.

This is really scary, being an electrohypersensitive.  I'm from the US...   So, my understanding is that there is nowhere to escape once this is rolled out?  Can one live in a rural area and escape from it, or a house tucked away in a metro area.....is there an escape?  

If not, what countries will not have 5g?

Is there a meter for 5g?  Can I just surround myself with plants and be shielded that way?  Will those of us that are EMF sensitive have to forgo the internet altogether?  (Currently on cable with an ethernet connection)

So many questions, so few answers.  Thanks for starting a thread on 5g, because it is a concern for many of us. !

There are many places in the USA that don't have cellphone coverage now.  I'm not sure that I'd want to live in any of those places (in the middle of nowhere), but they do exist.  And those places won't have 5G either.

But if you find ways to improve your situation, it's probably not going to be much of an issue.  I mean, I live in a city where 5G is being tested right now, and I haven't noticed anything worse than last year.

Thanks! This is reassuring to know... I've been panicking. ...

5G is no longer definable as a frequency as it will be so mucked about with so as not to have a frequency. It will be slotted into any spare space they can find. It will fill every spare available air wave space in cities apparently.  I have already left the UK with its 99% coverage because even living in a metal lorry box in a field with only a 12vDC light bulb, the 5G introduction made me ill again.  I started shitting 3 times what I was eating. My arm went numb. My tongue swelled up so I could not close my mouth. I went to the middle of nowhere in France and all that stopped within a week. I wrote to my doctor to tell him. The UK does not give a shit! Apparently TETRA and 5G will account for half of all the electro pollution in the UK.  Most of the people I know there are ill but do not believe that electricity in the air can cause illness. Its so stupids. You only need a Faraday box to prove it. Or rather a thicker one now. Can any one block TETRA please?

You have 5G in the UK?  I don't think it's expected for a few more years in the US (although isolated testing has been done in a few major cities).

2018 is set to be a busy year for 5G development, especially in the UK, as one of the first 5G trials of 2018 is happening in Bristol in March, demonstrating the UK’s ongoing commitment to being a major 5G player.

I live in very posh Fowey ( lots of the richest)UK  and they texted every one it 5G had gone on in the summer (yachts away!). The UK is way ahead of schedule with 5G.  Like the good little Ginny pigs we are for the US.  Like I said I had to move my ali box lorry into a field and live on a 12v battery because of dirty electricity wire contaminations.  My auto immune diseased tummy IB went nuts and I shat 3 times what I was eating. My tinnitus was horrendous.  I had to leave and go to France. I recover very quickly. 5G is a big mistake that they the Electro Nazis will use it to achieve their EHS cleansing goal. This is DEMOCIDE!
