Re: Spectrum crunch: not a problem today, but eventually

That can be done but equipment, towers, and engineers are not cheap.

Most of the engineering is about picking locations, prepare mounting arrangements and getting uplink/power on-site. You have none of those problems with embedded pico-cells in subscriber CPEs since the wired subscriber provides all of the above for free... doesn't matter if individual pico-cell placement is sub-optimal if you have many times more cells than you need to handle demand. Worst case, you turn off some cells where there is excessive overlap.

Us customers are in fact giving these companies tons of money. In the old days companies use to take profit and reinvest it to grow the company. Today that seems to be a dirty word.
