Bits are bits… Unless they’re wireless ? October 13, 2006Posted by sdpurtill in Technology.
Ok, I’m not understanding this… Are you still transferring “bits” when sending data over a wireless network ? If so, then why would Verizon and the big telcos need to lay down a whole new set of pipes for a faster internet ? Why can’t they just build some gingantic wireless data centers that can send requested data to a large satellite that can wirelessly send the data back to the end user. Not only would this be much faster for the telcos to do, but it would be soo much smarter for our future. In the future, we’re going to have to have like T5000 lines in our homes, with transfer rates of at least 8mbps. Hopefully 16mbps. If the telcos set up a wireless infrastructure, wouldn’t upgrading technology on top of that be easier ?
My advice for the day: avoid physical infrastructure at all cost.
