Re: Remember, this isn't replacing DSL/Cable
Not necessarily true. I'm in the Nashville market which one of the first one's launched. lots of cable and dsl choices in this market. comcast, charter, at&t, independent phone companies.
However, it will appeal to very rural areas outside of the metro area that have verizon towers out in the middle of nowhere in cow pastures.....

Anyone complaining the caps are low or the prices are high are missing the point -- this isn't competing with DSL or Cable. This is getting deployed where none of that exists. This competes favorable against HughesNet ($100/month for 450MB a month at 2Mbps down).
