Re: Cat People Yeah. Although Ray actually said they were experimenting with millimeter on macro too.

Re: Cat People The article states that they would deploy "5G on 600MHz, 28GHz and 39GHz frequencies"

The latter 2 would be deployed on Small Cells that would have the 200m range mentioned.

Albeit with much lower bit-rates than the Small Cells, 600MHz has a range of around 3 times that of PCS 3G services and easily 20mile+ range.

Re: Cat People The 600 foot or so range will certainly cause some planning to be aborted or revised as provider attempt service in less than very populated areas. A two-football field range is not going to be helpful out in the rural areas.

Re: Cat People Some would point out that many rural areas are particularly dense. But a different kind of dense, maybe.

Re: Cat People Dense urban areas in cities will be first to go 5G, there's really no question about that now. Chris Schmidt at Verizon told me they could be looking at filling in less populated areas later if there are commercial reasons to do. After 2020 or so? Maybe. In the initial rollouts? Not so much.

Re: Cat People At this point, 5G is a prime example of marketing nonsense run amok. The economic reality check will come later -- it's part of the hangover phase that telecom can't seem to avoid.

Re: Cat People The word was 'commercially'. I'm not going to be paying extra for my kids to get 2Gbps on the motorway. So who pays for premium sites on highway lighting/gantries etc?

That 4K can be delivered by C-Band macros, and if it can't well either they either pre-load the movies or accept a transcode to FHD. 

Show me the money.

Re: Cat People Aw, poor Taylor Swift. (I'm not a fan of her music, but she seems like a decent enough person.)

I guess New York is more of a place people "love to hate". Sure, it's fun to say nasty things about it and the people who live there. But then it's kinda neat to visit it and do cool stuff that you can't do back home.

Re: Cat People Agree -- New York is the Taylor Swift of cities. Or maybe Taylor Swift is the New York of pop stars.

Re: Cat People @mendyk: One more reason to hate New York!

Or, as Yogi Berra once put it: "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."
