Telus is also partnering with Ericsson — see last night’s update for details about their manhole transmitters. Some manholes are already being used to support 4G — a convenient way to install a cell transmitter without having to get permission or to let anyone know. Obviously, ISED’s policies need to be updated to take this into consideration.

Manhole Covers Serve as Antennas Expanding Wireless Network Coverage
“Manhole antenna solution offers glimpse into 5G strategies for signal propagation…
…the strategy has been a combination of small cells with massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas to increase coverage. Small cell deployment will be so extensive that the Small Cell Forum predicts 5G small cell will overtake 4G small cells by 2024. The total installed base of 5G or multimode small cells will reach 13.1 million by 2025, constituting more than one-third of the total small cells in use.”
