Wireless-wireline convergence and cellular wireless deployment can economically accelerate through partial transmission of wireless 4G, 5G (generally 3GPP-standardscompliant), and/or Wi-Fi 6 baseband signals on the billions of copper phone, Ethernet, coaxial cable, and other wireline connections. This article poses such a Cellular Subscriber Lines (CSL) re-use architecture and investigates large bandwidth-efficiency gains, as well as the consequent cost-efficiency improvement that accrues for

Results here also expand to Wi-Fi (possibly with MIMO use) on Ethernet multipair cables, finding very large gains over existing enterprise mesh (ad-hoc or otherwise) approaches.
