Re: NSF Breaks Ground on 5G
@srufolo1 - After spending 4 years working for the University of Phoenix, my opinions on for-profit schools are a little on the low side. And honestly it was one of the reasons I had no problems leaving them when I finally did. The pay was great, I earned fast raises and had unheard of insurance at a time when a lot of Americans were really starting to struggle with both things. (I literally paid nothing to have my first son because the insurance covered 100% of all maternity needs - pre Obamacare.) But I also know people were getting in way too far over their heads for something that would never truly pay off. It was after I left that I knew I needed to find jobs that were either meaningful or neutral in the human effect sphere.

"The National Science Foundation (NSF), an independent federal agency focused on funding science and engineering research, will soon be breaking ground on two Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) "living laboratories" in Salt Lake City and New York City to serve as city-wide next-generation wireless testbeds for 5G."

This is really interesting and exciting! It doesn't surprise me that the major carriers are helping to fund the project. It is really in their best interest to ensure the product is being thoroughly tested before they ever unroll it. Even if most customers would forgive an unsuccessful 5G rollout, a lot of customers would likely be willing to reconsider their carrierrs if one of the carriers has an amazing 5G launch. Especially if their own carrier didn't pull off the roll out so well.
