Wireless broadband is clearly the future for the connected person everywhere and often the only solution for connectivity in rural areas. Many options exist ranging from amped up wi-fi to de jure 4G standards like WiMAX and LTE, which is the choice of major cellco and telco carriers deploying 4g services.
Fixed wireless technology, including amped up wi-fi, have been providing rural areas with broadband, areas which would have otherwise been starved for connectivity due to the high cost to deploy terrestrial solutions such as copper (DSL, cable) and fiber.
Additionally, wireless has been used for decades for backhaul of major traffic in lieu of fiber – deploying more quickly and at a fraction of the cost. Actually, in the 1960′s AT&T built a nationwide wireless backhaul system to transport all telephone calls from coast to coast. These major routes have been replaced by fiber, but wireless backhaul still connects communities, cell towers and businesses to the fiber across the USA. These connections can be just as reliable as terrestrial options
Fixed and mobile wireless continues to evolve quickly and is capable of providing connections as fast as most DSL and Cable connections. For mobility you receive the advantage of freedom and personal connectivity, for fixed you receive the advantage of being connected when no other options (or cost-effective options) exist.
