Mythbusting: 5G does not require more sites than 4G

95% of real 5G is mid-band, 3.3-4.2 GHz. The range is comparable to more traditional 1800 MHz spectrum if the site uses many (small) antennas, Massive MIMO and efficient beamforming. Therefore, 5G as actually deployed does not require more antennas than 4G. Orange/FT CTO Michael Trabbia is the latest to confirm. He tells Iain...
