NYU Wireless has just reported on 14,000 tests using 28 GHz and 73 GHz indoors. The paper isn't online yet so I put the abstract below. Professor Ted Rappaport believes, "These high frequencies will be an effective substitute when today's Wi-Fi frequencies get crowded."
The FCC is about to set aside some high frequencies for telco use. My opinion, not Ted's is that monopoly spectrum is obsolete. Wi-Fi is proving sharing is possible and productive. Some monopoly spectrum is needed where reliability is important, but the 100 MHz Sprint, AT&T and Verizon each have is plenty.
