There are many other ways to improve coverage and capacity, many clever ways. This is perhaps what ICASA is getting at.
There are a few, mostly involving clever tricks in terms of looking at traffic peaks and dips and user behaviour. Then each vendor will have capacity enhancements which can be called upon instead of adding in sites or "antennas", these can be software and/or hardware. Optimisation is a bit of an art in this regard, every cluster will have a different combination and this is what needs to be found in order to achieve results.
Your sugesstions are very vague. Can you maybe do a point by point list of the various things MNOs can do with the expected increase in coverage/throughput/user base per point?
