What’s Best? WiFi 6 (802.11ax) or 5G?

What’s Best? WiFi 6 (802.11ax) or 5G?
Every time a new cellular phone standard comes out, we see new claims about the “end of WiFi.” When 3G was announced, the promise was that it would make WiFi (802.11b) redundant, which clearly turned out to be incorrect. With 4G (LTE), this story repeated itself and claimed it would put WiFi (802.11ac) in the shredder. And now the 5G message is that it will cover both the inside and outside of homes and buildings. It’s almost as though WiFi will soon no longer be needed.
