Will 4G replace your home broadband?

NO... unless something big changes.

Wireless technologies are not up to the challenge of a modern multi-device home that participates in any video streaming.

Things like Netflix/Hulu ETC smash usage caps for wireless tech.
The towers cannot support the quantity of data that a household uses currently.

FTTH is the BEST (lets lookup that word before we have an arguement) technology to deliver bits to a fixed location AKA a home.

Wireless is good for things that move, like cell phones, also cell phones typically use less data than a home PC or laptop.

Most cellular data customers have WiFi at home to offload the high cost 4G data anyway.
