Verizon: Millimeter Waves Go 3,000 Feet
Straight from Verizon CEO: he admits what Verizon told to the CA Legislature in 2017 was false. See http://scientists4wiredtech.com/ and http://mystreetmychoice.com/
In lobbying for CA's "Small Cell" Bill, SB.649, Rudy Reyes, Esq., Vice President Verizon California said, "the small cells for 4G/LTE densification goes a few blocks . . . for 5G, the spectrum is going to be millimeter wave spectrum, that spectrum goes much shorter distances, maybe 100 feet and requires a line of sight . . . we are going to need about five to ten times the number of 5G nodes, as we will 4G/LTE nodes . . . so it is really about p times q, price times quantity. So this cost formula needs to pencil out in order to bring 5G to California . . . just for dowtown LA, Verizon alone is going to need 200 to 300 small cells just to densify for 4G/LTE. Then you have to multiply that for five to ten times for when we get to 5G."
Apparently, according to Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam, that is not true.
CA Governor Jerry Brown didn't buy what Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint were trying to sell to California in 2017 and he vetoed SB.649 on 10/15/17. CA Cities, therefore, retain their local rights to regulate the placement, construction, modification -- and operations -- of Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) of all types, including Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antenna - Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (CPMRA-WTFs), aka so-called "Small Cells" in residential areas.
