A 15:1 ratio?!?

The article states it takes 12 to 15 2.5 Ghz towers to equal the coverage of one 700 mhz tower. That doesn't sound fiscally plausible.
Perhaps with macro cells it's not finacially possible. However, using small cells in dense urban and possibly even suburban areas may make it more palatable.

Plus more then 1 band

Duh we all know that 2500 doesn't penetrate well.. Which was part of Clears issues (among a whole slew of others)

We also know that the 1900 has some of the same problems...

OH OH OH I know....NEXTELS 800 freq!!!! Which has the good building penetration.

Which is why we have been waiting on a tri band phone....

so put them all together, and people inside AND outside, and hope that it all works and hands off the way it should....And we should all be happy campers....

NOW GET ME A EARLY G2 TO TRY OUT HERE IN UTAH, WHICH IS ALREADY RUNNING HOT WITH 2500!!!!!!!!!

More than one device

Eric, Sprint actually sells two hotspot devices with the 2.5GHz spectrum on board-the Novatel MiFi 500 and the Netgear Zing. They also sell a USB device with that spectrum on board, the Netgear 341U.
