    Oh please. All the services complain they don't have enough bandwidth. They keep raising prices. We lost unlimited data plans and have a meesily 2gigs now. This would be absolutely pointless.

    Well, this will solve VZW's issue from a few days ago about running out of spectrum.

    Also a VERY interesting competitive balance issue in the future. This would be new spectrum, I assume, sold at auction. LTE would be a dinosaur in comparison. VZW and AT&T may have the subscribers, but not the bankroll to compete with the likes of Google, Apple and probably some others in bidding for this.

    On the other hand, with 1000 times the capacity they can sell-off a lot more chunks, which might finally enable some real competition removing a significant barrier to entry (i.e. instead of 5 big chunks or whatever, they could auction 100 chunks of spectrum). Of course, too much supply would probably de-value what the auction can bring in terms of $$$. So as a result the FCC might piecemeal rights, meaning nothing will change.

    Tell them how life managed to exist, though we'll never know how, before text messages, IM and video calls while your at it. When I was a kid the video calling on the Jetsons was no more than a fantasy cartoon and car phones and cordless phones, like in the show UFO, seemed impossible.

    That's hard to visualize, though. Just show them an old 5 1/4" floppy!
