No BGAN only portals. Require additional expensive equipment
For the average agent who has not invested in BGAN equipment the BGAN only portals cause an elitist level of agent that will win at any cost.
This feature of the game needs to end. Niantoc can tell if a portal uses what service.
Whether it is consumer cellular service; WiFi Access or satellite service.
Niantic allows all service but can easily restict new portal creation on BGAN only access.
And your data scientists should be able to figure out bgan only service.
If there is a business with wifi access them conduct business with them and asked for wifi password.
But why should ingress agents have to upgrade to Bgan????
Please stop allowing Bgan portals. It creates an unfair advantage and is contrary to fair game play.
I have seen the other side maintain massive fields in town for years. My side gave up. Over there so i try to counter balance that action with my own fields me and my husband. These guys are setting an example but losing for the team.
