    A very good article on the positives and negatives of each frequency band used by wireless carriers and what that means for the soon to be auctioned 600 MHz band.

    Analyst Angle: What 600 MHz spectrum will be good for … and what it will not

    "These lower bands are great for covering wide areas with signals and they will generally go into buildings well."

    "But, 600 MHz will not be good for small cells, as operators need higher bands for this. So 600 MHz will not enable the operators to increase the capacity density of their networks."

    I knew about the one "positive." It never even occurred to me about the capacity issue -- good point.
