“The new Internet revolution will be characterized by 100 megabit speeds, two-way capabilities, and broadband-anywhere mobility. It will be delivered by an increasingly diverse range of technologies – fiber, EV-DO, cable, Wi-Fi, WiMAX – from a wide range of providers. It will create opportunities for entrepreneurs, drive the next generation of consumer electronics and provide new creative outlets for content and applications,” he said.

I believe that the folks at the top of all the carriers get it. It’s just too much money is being made short-term by locking things down. Hopefully T-Mobile Wi-Fi handsets and MVNOs will shake things a little more open in the next year.
