I recently noticed how relative time can be. Take 5 minutes for example, is that a long or a short time? I'd say it depends. Here are three examples
- Waiting 5 minutes in a call center queue seems like ages.
- Waiting for 5 minutes for a file download to finish because the server is on the other side of the world and has a slow link feels sluggish at best.
- But: Waiting for 5 minutes in a doctor's waiting room before it's your turn feels very short.
Now how do the extra 6 seconds required to establish a voice call between two LTE mobiles due to Circuit-switched Fallback (CSFB) feel?
