It's not that simple

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.
