WiFi as the workaround?
> then use a WiFi router to distribute the connectivity indoors.

How silly. This defeats the purpose of using cellular service. There are times when it's desirable to use cellular service instead of a stranger's WiFi for security/privacy reasons.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
Possibly, the original concept was a self install antenna, that may be changing as they learn more.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
Dan, To echo 7's point but with a slightly different perspective, I wonder if this is not a problem but a competitive advantage to some parties. I mean, while you think it is an issue from an average 5G user's perspective, the power that be controls the access. After all, the tenants of the building pay rent, not the visitors.

Still, thanks to your column, I have alerted my friend (EE PhD) maybe there is business to be had. His initial response is similar to 7. He thinks Google and a bunch of startups are making a bunch of solutions but it is beyond my understanding

Cheers

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
The whole point was to reduce labor/ installation vs. Cable for residential, yes.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
 

I can see that for residential applications, but it does not seem likely to me that the kind of performance that fixed wireless gets out there today in the WISP market is close to acheivable that way.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
The initial concept was a user- mounted antenna, to keep costs down.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
 

Well, on the business side of existing fixed wireless most of the antennas are roof mounted so it is not a big deal...maybe that is what the plan is for 5G.

Re: The Glass Ceiling has existed for some time
This sounds like it could step up the problem. Interesting that none of the carriers happily talking about fixed 5G etc have really mentioned it, to my knowledge, at least in a public setting.
