Re: A side-effect

Except C-Band is never going to be used for rural 5G as the transmission distances will suck. Where this will exclusively be used is more urban deployments where the bandwidth will be really convenient.

So yes, less spectrum for satellites that can provide rural connectivity and more spectrum for latte sippers.
