Investing in upgrading infrastructure sounds expensive.. much easier and profitable to just pump out more dividends to your shareholders.

Isn't this why the mobile networks just bought up a bunch of spectrum from the FCC?

Does make me wonder if it wasn't to fix the issue, but to make it unavailable to other networks.

Invest in your future, or you won't have one.

Countries too and we stopped investing here a long time ago. The USA is a 3rd world country with a couple of nice areas.

this.  maybe they should have invested some of those billions they've been making for decades.

the reason we dont have broadband in rural areas, AND the reason we dont have solid dependable cell coverage, is solely the greed of the phone companies.  they'd rather have a yacht today than be able to provide service tomorrow.  because they're "too big to fail" and they know when tomorrow comes they'll just get taxpayer bailouts to fix the problem which they can siphon half of off into another yacht.

FTA: the most persistent issues on network quality ratings continue to be streaming audio and video quality, slow loading times, and calls not going through.

If voice performance is being impacted because of capacity issues (as opposed to reception issues), seems like maybe your network's quality of service (QoS) settings need tuning.  Voice packets/frames should have priority above all else.

More potholes everywhere, less cell phone coverage, more water problems, more brownouts, higher danger of blackouts...

...you either invest in infrastructure, or that infrastructure progressively fails. In the case of phones, it's that there simply wasn't enough infrastructure to handle the amount of streaming people are doing, but that doesn't change anything. They knew what usage was realistically going to look like, they just didn't plan for it. Ditto on any power company not planning for an uptick in extreme weather due to global warming.
