A new piece of research could offer welcome news for smartphone users struggling with poor signals, slow downloads, and short battery life.
Researchers at the Radio Science and Engineering Department at Finland's Aalto University have developed a digital antenna design that is expected to improve reception, data-transfer speed, and power consumption.
Currently, smartphones have multiple antennas that each work with one or several frequencies dedicated to specific smartphone applications, such as cellular reception, GPS, and Bluetooth.
The new method is set to change this approach by combining several small antenna elements together as a single aerial, which can be controlled digitally to operate at any frequency.
Viikari compares this approach to a guitar where a single open string could digitally be made to produce a different note. When one compact antenna can be used for multiple frequencies, it frees up space for the likes of larger touchscreens, thanks to smaller bezels, without sacrificing the phone's performance.
But the new digital method promises to give the antenna greater bandwidth, which results in better radiation efficiency and the 100 to 1,000 times faster data transfer speeds set as an objective for the next-generation of 5G smartphones. Read more.

It is very important to keep radio spectrum allocation independent of day-to-day political pressures. Traditionally even deregulatory Republicans conceded there needs to be some spectrum cop on the beat. But who is actually doing the policing? Shouldn't we have a free market for spectrum licensing in smaller markets where customers are getting screwed with no coverage?
FCC regulation is about disappointing people at a rate that they can endure.
|Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters Claim Poor Cell Phone Coverage Here|
According to the Deadcellzones.com map of North Dakota there have not been many cell phone coverage complaints in the area submitted to the map.

Check back soon for an update.
More than 140 people were arrested Thursday during a standoff over a camp set up at the site of a planned pipeline in North Dakota. About 200 activists supporting the Standing Sioux Tribe moved onto the site last weekend, setting up teepees and tents and saying the land is rightfully theirs under a more than century-old treaty, according to CBS affiliate KXMB.

There are also reports that the State cut off water access to Native Americans protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. The state supplied two supplemental water tanks as part of ongoing support for tribal protests against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, but those tanks were removed after they were determined to be at a secondary site outside the state's jurisdiction.
