Re: Fiber to every other pole?
There's a good video from Mike Thelander on testing he's done on two 28GHz cell sites in Houston. Would be nice to see some actual numbers :)

Re: 5G Density on pirlo tv
Line of sight? NLOS?

Number of terminals on the network?

Tricky details to nail down right now, I know.

Fiber to every other pole?
100 to 200 meters is roughly an antenna on every other pole (~100m/300ft) or every 4th pole.  If fiber is that close to the home, might as well go FTTH.  Future proof and secure and noise/hype aside, about the same price as wireless.

Re: 5G Density
This is a typical challenge for telecom. From 2.5G on, the best speeds were limited to those in the right areas, with the right supporting infrastructures.

5G Why?
The achilles heal of 5G is range and penetration.  That's what has killed Sprint and they are only at 1.9 GHz.!  We need to get away from radio as we've known it for 100 years where a cell site just blasts out signals ad-hoc, and move to a modern technology where signals are pinpointed to each subscriber, resulting in a 50x thruput, hence, www.artemis.com and pCell. (I have no relationship with Artemis, only common sense).

5G Density
Great article.  Just as FYI Huawei and NTT DOCOMO have just completed field trials for 5G at 28GHz which delivered 4.9Gbps UL and 1.5Gbps DL at a distance of 1.2km...this was through -10dB glass.,..So many numbers and sceanrios to play out
