Re: big deal....Whatever
Think about it, this will change the way we connect to the net, the way we talk to people (streaming video phones on full duplex is a distinct possibility), streaming video and music... all through a little handheld. Think of the Tapwave Zodiac 2 and what it would be possible of doing with an always on 3mbps data connection with simul voice... Its going to create an ultra competive environment between ISP's, Cable companies, and Cell phones and competition is a very good thing.
As for the T1 reference... in my neighborhood Comcast laid a Fibre backbone where I can hit consistent 4.5mbps using Cnet's bandwidth tester. I have hit 6.2mbps when they first installed it... before they throttled the bandwidth. The official throttle is supposed to be 5.0mbps, up from 3.5. Bear in mind that this is not a full duplex connection... Comcast throttles connections at 512k Up.
