That’s the theory analysts at UBS proposed in a recent note to investors. Richard Dineen, an analyst at UBS, says the range and strength of 5G technology just don’t make financial sense. Here’s Dineen: "We modelled how many 5G sites would be required to cover the NY-NJ-PA Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), an area of ~8,300sq/mi with >20m population (6% of US total).
