The first caution indicator light in the report concerns wireless spectrum: U.S. carriers don’t have enough of the right kind for fast but far-reaching 5G. They have plenty of high-frequency, ultra-high-speed millimeter-wave spectrum that … [Read more...] about 5G’s rollout is confusing, uneven, and rife with problems
