If you build for today what you need for today, then tomorrow brings nothing but more problems. It always has and it always will be that way.
A great example besides broadband in the US is our highway/ roadway systems the knowledge of demand exploding was always there however they did not want to expand past the normal 1-2 lanes in each direction. It was overlooked now, there there building 5-6 lanes in almost every major urban area well after congestion has taken place and there now having to take eminent domain in some areas for land space that should have been set aside for roadways/Highways in the first place.
Another area where the US failed at is there passenger railroad program, from the invention of Amtrak ( in the 70s) The goal should have been to build and maintain there own railway ( high speed lines running on electricity) At least east of the Mississippi where the majority of our population lives, Similar to Amtrak in the NEC which Amtrak makes a heck of a profit on, and similar to rail lines in Europe, china, and the UK. The ball was dropped and now that high gas prices are here to stay, theres and the cost to build such a railroad network have sky rocketed there is no alternative to, cars, buses, and planes which all share in high fuel cost as none currently can run of a pure renewable energy.
"IF you build it, they will come" ..... field of dreams...
That phrase holds true in almost all aspects.
