The only downside so far is the price gouging for gigabyte limits(Verizon): I blow through a gigabyte a day in my researches and streaming music. So a typical plan will charge me $80/10gigs/month +$10/gig over. I'm at the very end of a DSL trunk, so my speed is limited to 1meg. No cable here and satellite is just as pricey and limited also.

The scale of the project seems to be a bit too large to be achieved in 4 years. The challenges will come from the installation of the station and the connectivity to the station. WiMax could be a wireless backbone. A high speed wired infrastructure is indeed very important to the success of the system.

Full 4G LTE will be a significant increase of capability for mobile data use, but I have real problems with the image of carriers and their "...struggle to pay for the buildout of their wireless nets." I see it more as their struggle to wring as much profit and control as possible over the market and cement themselves as thoroughly as possible into their position. Larry M.

10,000 percent increase in 4 years. Makes Intel's purchase of Infineon's LTE holdings look pretty darn good.
