The Case For 4G: Broadband Internet Everywhere

Wired: The Case For 4G – Broadband Internet Everywhere

Wired magazine reviews the Clear 4G+ Mobile USB (Series S) dongle ($115 plus service plan) and makes the case for dropping conventional ISP service. By making broadband access available everywhere, 4G will change Internet access the way cell phones changed telephony, the author argues.

“The concept is pretty clear: If you had high-speed internet in your pocket, chances are you would dump your home service provider, rethink your wireless plan and even hang out at Starbucks less often.

That kind of massively disruptive scenario defined the trajectory for the telephone. Landlines are on a death spiral, because phone calls went into your pocket. And then maybe, just maybe, you realized that your mobile phone worked just as well in your living room as it did in your travels.”
