Click on this graphic from the most recent edition of Business Week. What you will see, and what many continue to deny, is that Metro-scale Wifi isn’t a theory, its a reality. The networks are live. They perform way better than EVDO or any cellular alternative. They are cheaper to deploy. AND, there is huge momentum around more and more networks.
This is classic "Innovator’s Dilemma" type disruption. And the incumbents should start to embrace it instead of trying to pass laws to make it illegal.
Resistance is futile…and denial is typically a poor business strategy.
