Every day we hear about how AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless are running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to grab as much wireless spectrum as they can. We all remember the quality problems AT&T smartphone customers suffered. That same future is in store for every carrier and every customer unless we come up with a solution. Houston, we have a problem. The wireless industry faces a real and growing concern over wireless data bandwidth. In fact, there is both a short-term and a long-term problem.
You write this article and don't bother to mention Clearwire? Have you read their business plan? They have a boatload of spectrum and are fully funded to build out their LTE network for shared access to all carriers (for profit, of course). This is to alleviate the very problem you are fretting about. I'm shocked at this glaring omission. This article needs a re-write.
