The point that Ivan fails to mention is that I had to wait for him to deign to erect towers at great expense. With 802.11 I can extend the connectivity to anywhere I want without waiting for him.
&nbsp;
His shareholders spent billion erecting towers on the assumption that only he and his clones could deliver connectivity. It's a hardware version of Excite@home when ATT bet $6G that only they could change your home page URL.
&nbsp;
I do take advantage of Verizon's &quot;investment&quot; by using EV-DO (http://www.frankston.com/public/writing.asp?name=EVDOTaste) but I don&#8217;t confuse that with a long term scalable solution.
&nbsp;
It&#8217;s not so much about the government offering services as whether individuals can extend the network. If Verizon doesn&#8217;t like that then we can view the government as simply a way to aggregate our efforts.
&nbsp;
Neither Wi-Fi nor EV-DO offer the capacity to take full advantage of Internet connectivity but they do add to the richness. Wi-Fi, however, is more capable of growing to meet the demand.
