"Verizon's 5G Fixed Wireless Competitive Threat is Modest at Best":  "After some analysis, New Street predicts that Verizon could achieve 24% penetration in many of these markets, but that only represents 7% of broadband homes nationwide, or around 8 million subscribers.  To get there, Verizon will have to spend $35 billion in CAPEX during the deployment phase, and it would take them 15 years to achieve these numbers.... New Street predicts Verizon will still generate a negative net present value of $16 billion, with a 10 year internal rate of return of -34%." :: Telecompetitor
