Sprint has their 4G wireless network rolling out with speeds up to 4 Mbps. while i like what the FTC is doing to try and enforce Net Neutrality, i think Ed is correct that cable internet is on the way out.

that being said, Google is trying to start a real broadband initiative with fiber (and speeds up to 100 Mbps) . . . and they think they can show that it's cheap and can be offered for prices competitive with the current crap from Comcast (~6 Mbps).
