Reinventing the internet: How wireless networks could become the workhorses of the webTo build a better internet, we'll have to build better wireless networks.
"Lets face it: today the internet is wireless. Comcast may provide the coaxial cable into your home. Level 3 and AT&T may build the fiber optic backbone connecting cities. And Google and Netflix may run the massive server banks where your content originates. But the last hop to your device is more often than not a wireless one, whether its the last mile, the last 20 feet, or the last inch. Your phone isn't just connecting to a distant carriers tower. It and your laptop hop on your home Wi-Fi router whenever you're in range."
