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 outdoors and if in buildings they'll install equipment in 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.
