    I would love to know my area has good cell service. NIMBYs constantly get towers denied then turn around and complaint to the carriers about sucky coverage and demand they do something about it. All these "ugly" cells actually will INCREASE the homes value. People want to live where they can get broadband internet and good cell service. A house that has neither will take forever to sell and sell for less.

    I wasn't addressing their choice to do that. I was only pointing out to CanadianAngela that it was their choice. She was stating false information that "T-Mobile got stuck with low-band 5G" and "being forced to deploy only low-band 5G".

    They weren't forced to deploy anything nor were they stuck with low-band 5G as she falsely stated. Like you said, they could've deployed more 4G LTE on that band if they wanted to until 5G devices were more widespread.

    The problem with this statement is that it's factually incorrect. T-Mobile has not deployed "only low-band 5G". They've deployed both band 71 and mmWave 5G.

    Uhhh.. Nope. No one wants to live next to an ugly cell tower. The problem is that cell towers don't have to be ugly. It just happens that's the cheapest way to build them. They can be attractive; it's just more expensive.

    I wish they could also tie in to the graph how much data each network carried. That is also a key factor in determining performance (it’s easy to be fast if you you only handle 1/2 as much data as your competitors).

    Sports/entertainment venues are much different then other high traffic areas because at events like the super bowl and concerts people use their phones differently. At these events most people are uploading live videos, sending pictures, and snap chats and what not compared to other high traffic areas where most people are downloading data much more (streaming videos and browsing FB).

    In the end all the carriers did extremely well for handling that much traffic in such a small area. Just from looking at the graph the only carrier that did not do great was sprint because they had poor upload speeds.

    The small cells can be designed to be aesthetically not ugly. In the city I live in they came up with an unobtrusive design and the carriers all signed on. If a city doesn't work with the carriers then they'll end up getting the cheapest, ugliest design.

    It's the fear of 5G mmWave radiation that some people are concerned about. They were also concerned aboug 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G radiation. There's probably nothing to those fears https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/16/s...ss-cancer.html. But this is an emotional issue, not a logical issue.

    Those 5G small cells dont look as obtrusive as people make them out to be. The more they install, the more they'll just blend in with rest of infrastructure we normally see on streets/highways.
