Re: Antenna gain

"It makes some sense for users in really sparse areas, but not for high density cities, etc, where putting in some fibre and a few mobile base stations operating at frequencies that penetrate building is going to work much better."

But what about a place like New York, which is already so built up that trying to add anything else, even fiber, is a project instead of an operation due to having to dig around so much (still-operational) crap AND is a concrete jungle so dense that trying to get even 700Mhz waves through is a crapshoot?
