Government regulations impose a huge burden and make it very difficult to improve a network, remember that in San Francisco they passed a law which allows ANY citizen prevent a new cell tower from being installed, one complaint from one person and you can't put a new tower at all, that is how ridiculous it has gotten.

It can take YEARS to get government approval to build one tower. It isn't as simple as 'find a spot to put a tower and it's there later that same day.'

Government regulations and NIMBYism can make it very difficult to build out a network in places where improvements are most needed.

First, as has been stated ad infinitum elsewhere, no carrier guarantees in building coverage. Any in building coverage (absent specifically placed pico cells and repeaters in convention centers, subway stations, etc.) is merely serendipitous fringe benefit. So, "invest[ment] in better networks" is neither the problem nor the solution. If ubiquitous in building coverage is the goal, that will require some action/cooperation from end users.

Second, signal boosters have some advantages over personal femto cells. Signal boosters, unlike femto cells, do not require broadband Internet backhaul. More importantly, signal boosters are airlink agnostic. For example, if AT&T were to convert T-Mobile's AWS 2100+1700 MHz spectrum from W-CDMA to ...
