5G roadblock: labor



Oh, for sure it's driven by equipment manufacturers.

this is the wrong argument to make... or at the least it distracts 
from the conversation about: "Why 5g?" because everyone can come up 
with a reason for/against N mbps to Xthing. (I think this is sort of 
shane's point, actually) 

4G/LTE: 
o started the migration/consolidation of voice/video/data to a 
single bearer (well, IP anyway). 
o moved the (ideally) IP endpoint closer to the tower base 
o removed some latency, jitter, intermediaries between 'End-User' 
and "thing on the network" 

5G: 
o supposedly reduces latency 'more' (brings more of the IP 
connection and routing closer to the tower/radio?) 
o simplifies management? (maybe?) 

keeping speed out of the conversation, the footprint for MANY 5g 
deploymetns in the US (and elsewhere) is likely 'hundreds of feet 
circles', where 4G is 'miles'. 
(yes you can beam-form and make ovals and such...) 

It'd be nice to see what benefits 5g really has for carriers and 
consumers/users... It looks, to me, like a bunch of the 5g hype is 
really: "uhm, we need to sell these carriers on the G++ ... spin up 
the hype machine about speed!" never mind the cost to deploy, range of 
deployment, changes in handset/radio gear / etc... more $ to the 
vendors!
