thanks for that link JohninKansas,
I agree with your point that - traffic will fill up with increased bandwidth just like it does when they build a new highway.
BUt you have to admit that having an alternative to the wired networks will allow for more competition which can only be good for the consumer.
and people in remote areas will have an opportunity to get the faster service..
right now a sort of wimax lite- is available in the seattle area, and the one article that I read about it (Businessweek) required only the special modem (which can be used anywhere in town, but higher areas get faster service). And getting another computer nowadays is not as expensive as it used to be, you can get a pretty good system for 600 or $700 Canadian (which I guess is the same in US$)
