I think his point was Europe is only slightly larger than the US, but much more densely populated (739M vs 315M), therefore Europe has fewer vast expanses of sparsely populated nothingness you need to cover with cell towers. At higher frequencies, you'd either need more towers per area or run them at higher power to compensate.
