Re: Will LTE be pitched for fixed wireless to the home?

I was thinking along the same lines. I can imagine some sort of GPS receiver on the modem (much like their femcells have now) that verifies the location of the modem operation. That or tie the mac address into the tower that the modem will be used at so that it can only send/receive data from one source.

I used to live in a semi-rural town that wasn't hard wired for HSI, so a local business operator put wi-fi antennas on top of a water tower, and then distributed outdoor antennas to all of their customers to be mounted and pointed to said tower. Worked well, except for ridiculously high latency in rain storms.
