Background
The increasing popularity of mobile communications has been boosting demand for coverage in sparsely
populated areas, such as deserts, open countryside, forests, snow mountains, islands, and rural areas. These
areas feature low average revenues per user (ARPU) and a long return on investment (ROI).
This Universal Service Solution provides low-cost site-level coverage for areas imposing low requirements
on capacity or having no or poor coverage.
