For now in Buenos Aires it's just 5 sites in the Microcentro, if you have a mobile supporting 5G (iPhone 12, Moto Edge, and some other models) you should be able to get 5G service around say Luna Park and Parque General San Martin (Retiro), as well as just north of the Obelisk near Avenidas Tucuman and Cordoba.

If you have decent real 4G, it's pretty fast. There are many other constraints on your download/upload speed.
Just having 5G may not make it faster. The energy consumed is ridiculous. Chinese providers turn off their
5G at night. The amount of the stations need to be built is too much and the strong radiation could be harmful.
Hope we cam jump directly to 6G to Elon's Startlink. Argentina probably uses HW's 5G, which is junk.

Do please explain. Argentina uses Huawei's 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G, so why would one be junk, and another pretty fast? And yeah, if you feel like holding a pizza box to your ear then go for Elon's Starjunk.
