Seemless handoff between WiFi and native cell networks...
Not sure I understand your argument.
That is an emerging technology that allows cell phone data to transparently move data across the traditional cell phone network and Wi-Fi. It is a clever authentication scheme that will reduce transport cost by removing large amount of traffic off the traditional cellular network and on to Wi-Fi LANs.
How do you think this massive amount of Wi-Fi data is transported? In almost all cases over wired networks.
As Sammer posted wireless networks are great where mobility is important but that traffic is ultimately transported over wired infrastructure. We need a FTTP infrastructure. Once that is in place high performance wireless using a combination of cellular and Wi-Fi technology is feasible.
I think the correct way I should have worded this is that wired consumer internet is dying... End user connections are going completely wireless, exactly why Verizon is trying to distance itself, way too expensive.
