The article provides tips for wireless carriers on how to cope with the challenges brought by the growth of communications data and network congestion in the U.S. The strategies include the management of per-user demand, increase of network spectrum efficiency, and spectrum availability development. It notes that the effectiveness of network spectrum can be developed with the addition of spectrum reuse intensity by providing more modules on radio frequency (RF) channels.
