Nokia to “progressively mitigate these issues”
The road to 5G is a winding one, and it may yet turn out to be one of the shibboleths of our time.
The new standard certainly throws up ample challenges.
Even mobile network operators sound caution.
T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray noted in an April 2019 blog that millimeter-wave spectrum (mmWave) “will never materially scale beyond small pockets of 5G hotspots.”*
Critics note that even in dense urban environments, “obstacles” – like that rather common urban obstacle, buildings – put a dampener on the idea of seamless mmWave 5G connectivity.
