This has been the trend for a saturated and ultra competitive market like US. Western Europe has the same issue.

Wiring represents a large potion of deploying broadband. The upper half potion of the article seems making sense because the shift from expanding the capacity over new deployment. However, what would be the cost of upgrading last miles telephone cable to high quality cable which is capable to deliver up to 12Mbps. In addition, is the infrastructure of wireless carriers good enough to support the demand of high bandwidth of subscribers? If not, what would it take for the wireless carriers to improve bandwidth over next 2-3 years to compete in the market?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
