Wireless Bandwidth question
If every copper wired DSL, including U-verse, connection in the USA is abandoned in favor of wireless,
is there enough wireless bandwidth available to meet the demand?
I don't think there's enough backbone bandwidth to accommodate what they want. They don't care about oversubscribing the system though. The telco's want to abandon their copper infrastructure for obvious reasons but don't want to pay the money to upgrade the entire footprint to fiber. If everything was fiber based, their maintenance costs would be significantly lower and they could have a network capable of so much more. But today it's all about making money for their investors and they don't want to invest ANYTHING into their network that doesn't have huge profit margins
