    And no one says a word about the bombardment of our bodies by frequencies that damage our health. Typical. Yeah, just put a friggin' tower on everybody's street. Great. And then we can treat the sick with worthless and dangerous drugs from Big Pharma. That's a double win for the Wall Street crowd and insider elites, while the people, as usual get screwed. Health concerns don't just take a back seat. They're clinging to the bumper.

      I agree, and no one appears to be researching what the effects may be. Perhaps it would be better to say that no one is publishing or publicizing such research, and when attempts are made to do so, it is dismissed as invalid, not peer-reviewed, or downplayed in other ways. I am an engineer, and my sister is a veterinarian. We discussed what we can do individually, and are agreed that whatever effects cell-phone radiation may have, it is likely to be dose-dependent. We both know people who use their cell-phones a LOT more than we do, so we will let others be the guinea pigs. With regard to 5G, I do not live in an area where deployment is likely any time soon, and any visits I may make to such areas will be brief. Again, let others be the guinea pigs.

    I guess the issue for CCI is whether returns in small cells can be as high as for their core macro cell business. Towers are essential for 5G, but a massive issue in the US is the lack of densification vs Japan and China. Those two markets look much better prepared for 5G.

    Yay for 5G! Let's see a trade/investment idea on spectrum consolidation in advance of 5G a la $STRP, $NIHD. Also wireless backhaul device providers, 5G semis, etc. Untapped subject on RV thus far would be nice to see!

    Forget 3, 4 or 5G. In the next few years, it'll be Lifi with no spectrum issues.
