Wireless carrier FWA


Recommended Posts


I disagree with this article.  AT&T and Verizon have many rural sites without C-Band (or mmWave),  which ultimately are use it or lose it for them due to licensing requirements.  T-Mobile's rural FWA will greatly benefit once Auction 108 licenses are finally awarded.  Thus much growth is left for FWA. 

So far the carriers have been going after the low hanging fruit in the suburbs and exburbs.  In those places FWA may ultimately be forced out.  Perhaps by then BEAD money would be better put to use to bury fiber in suburban back yards (or next to the curb).  This assumes that FWA will result in more rural towers given better economics with wireless plus FWA revenue.
