Re: speed everywhere
Good chance IFF (that is if and only if) wireless is without jitter, lag, etc.

Re: speed everywhere
My bet is that evetually we won't really know what network we're on and WiFi or 4G is likely to be the first choice.

Re: speed everywhere
Gabriel, I agree with you that wireline will always be superior for realtime multiway communication (e.g. video chat/conference or gaming) but for the average user downloading video or audio these higher bandwidth channels should be more than sufficient.

Re: speed everywhere
Is wireless really comparable? In practice I'm not sure it's consistent and predictable enough to be a true alternative to wireline. A few 10s of miliseconds of extra latency is also noticeable.

Maybe at the low-end, and where wireleine service isn't very good, there could be competition.

This is more or less what EE is planning for next year in the UK using 20 MHz of 1.8 GHz and 20 MHz of 2.6 GHz. It is in trials now with pre-commercial devices. The first target customers will be small business in an area known as Tech City in London.

Re: speed everywhere
Exactly, this is where consumers win.

Re: speed everywhere
Good points Liz, but have you ever really seen carrier's successfully selling technology they've developed to their peers? That said because this is a spectrum efficiency play where every carrier is looking at any possible "tricks" rather than a service it does stand a relatively good chance of successfully being deployed in other carrier's networks.

Re: speed everywhere
I hope that you are right @milan03! If it happens it should scare Comcast, etc as it could encourage movement away from copper, fiber and coaxial solutions and really encourage some price wars.

Re: speed everywhere
So true Mordy...Japanese society is more uniform than the US so it brings some unique advantages but in this case since it is in the network rather than a handset feature (no flames I understand the handset side is part of the equation), it will be up to the operators to decide whether or not to co-opt the spectral efficiency for consumers to use later. Pretty fun to think about...
