Who cares

It's not like any of the carriers actually care what some standards committee says when they start marketing a new technology. We still don't have any 4G networks in the US according to the ITU's definition. Yet, every cellular carrier advertises 4G service. What a joke. Real world 5G service will still likely be slower than 4G, as the ITU has defined it. So why should anyone care what the ITU says when the carriers will call whatever cow dung they serve up next 5G?

Let's just hope these high frequency bands are better for the in-building penetration. Sprint's old Wimax was 2.5GHz was atrocious on the inside.
They're not going to, nor were meant to be. They're made for densely populated areas (football stadiums) etc...

They of course can use boosters or repeaters, but in general the higher frequencies are for more capacity and speeds. You'll see them ...
Correct: Not meant to be and can NOT be useful inside buildings. The nature of physics can not be changed... the higher the frequency, the greater the reflectivity and absorption by moisture. Foliage has a great effect in the GHz range.
