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.
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.
I do take advantage of Verizon's "investment" by using EV-DO (http://www.frankston.com/public/writing.asp?name=EVDOTaste) but I don’t confuse that with a long term scalable solution.
It’s not so much about the government offering services as whether individuals can extend the network. If Verizon doesn’t like that then we can view the government as simply a way to aggregate our efforts.
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.
