Rural 5G Fixed Wireless Access. Economics Analysis and Methodology. (2022)

By Sanjay Patel, Dorin Viorel, Ruoyu Sun; CableLabs

Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is an alternative to wired broadband services using radio links between two fixed points. With the introduction of 5G, advancements in spectral efficiency and antenna technologies using massive MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) and beamforming have become key enablers. The technology and costs have evolved and FWA services are now available from many service providers ranging from niche wireless Internet service providers (WISPs) to the largest mobile carriers. Today’s FWA services compete directly with other wired broadband options from telcos (DSL and FTTH) and cable operators (HFC).
