Re: Cat People @TV: Sure, but highways are still more densely populated around cities than in rural areas.

Coverage is more essential on the stretches of I-95 near, say, Boston and New York than, say parts of I-95 several miles north of Portland, Maine.

Re: Cat People @Dan: Of course, while Waco is hardly one of the major metros of the country, it's far from a lemonade stand -- hosting a respectable six-figure population.

As far as rural areas getting mmWave... everything when it comes to connectivity infrastructure is so politicized right now that I suspect a lot of prioritizations by policymakers will be backwardly focused.

Re: Cat People DanJones

"it makes no sense deploying mmWave commercially outside of cities."

You are forgetting highways.

Kids in the backseat need their fix of 4K Netflix and Youtube streaming while going.

This is probably the easiest revenue generators for carriers.

Re: Cat People If almost every part of the country that isn't New York hates New York, why does it take a half-hour to take what should be a 10-minute walk through the Times Square area?

Re: Cat People Ironically rural America probably has more chance of getting 600MHz eventually, it makes no sense deploying mmWave commercially outside of cities.

Cat People "T-Mobile pumped the gas on its mobile 5G deployment plans on Tuesday evening"

Appropriately, now I have David Bowie stuck in my head.

As for the New York vs. Waco snark, they pretty much alienated not just Waco but every New York-hating part of the country (i.e., almost every part of the country that isn't New York).
