But here's where you're wrong: Wireless carriers that provide wireless broadband service have no choice but to implement some version of "per-byte" billing. "Unlimited" wireless bandwidth for a fixed monthly fee is 100% out of the question, with or without "net neutrality" legislation, or the threat thereof. You guys are smart enough to know that spectrum is limited and wireless carriers cannot build fiber-served cell towers every 500 meters.
Maybe they should, as part of FTTH and retiring copper. The only difference between a base station and a Linksys router is the Intellectual Property licensing fees and the price the market (cell carriers) will tolerate.

Actually, they are! Except they're called femtocells -- and they have licensing fees and high prices!
