Broadband to Be Available for More Commercial Use - NYTimes.com

Nearly doubling the spectrum available for commercial wireless broadband during the next 10 years is good news indeed. Presumably the more efficient use of all spectrum is a companion goal.

As these announcements are made about the expansion of broadband, I think of George Gilder’s predictions more than a decade ago about the coming massive shift in how services are carried. Gilder predicted a massive migration of services carried on wire (telephony) to wireless and services carried on the air (broadcast television) to wireline (fiber optics and cable).
