Re: 5G
Way too early for them to be able to deliver that kind of info yet. I would imagine the pilot will help them discover initial cost of acquiring the customer. And of course early 5G service and CPE is likely to be expensive, just going on how 4G went.

Re: 5G
Well I figured fixed would be a very big part of this given their almost-outright-disdain for upgrading aging DSL lines. I'm less interested in the speed of these offerings as I will be the price point and just what kind of usage caps more efficient 5G networks will deliver. Price is going to be hugely important if Verizon really is eyeing a fixed-line rural broadband alternative.

Re: 5G
They didn't specify fixed or mobile in the original claims. People assumed mobile but we knew they were looking at fixed for 5G too.

Re: 5G
McAdam did at some point say commercial launch in 2017 I believe, he's always very, er, optimistic with launch schedules though, hahahaha!

5G
I though Verizon originally tried to claim that 2017 would see some kind of formal launch of 5G? Now it's just a fixed-wireles trial? Did they backpeddle at all on this or am I just misremembering their original claims?

Re: Fixed 5G? A way to help VRZ cut out more copper?
Growth is saturated in both wireless and wireline, and there's only going to be more competitive pressure to compete on price, so they're hoping that flinging ads at Millennials is their best path forward. Problem is, turf protectors tend to not be particularly innovative, so jumping into a new market to compete with Silicon Valley could be seppuku.

Oh yeah, XO holds 91 28GHz LMDS licences in the US. Still currently only allowed to be used for fixed wireless applications.

Re: "STRP" just had their NYC 5G licenses renewed
I do know that the Straightpath can't hold 5G licenses, because a VRZN executive told me yesterday that the FCC still rules that 28GHz is fixed wireless use only. That could change soon enough, and then, no doubt, the company could become valuable. As it stands nobody knows exactly when that will happen.

Re: Fixed 5G? A way to help VRZ cut out more copper?
As I saw your column and Carol's column, I wonder what is driving Verizon especially as they're also apparently in the "lead" to gobble up Yahoo.    Are they getting too big for their own good?
