Off topic, but internet based. Actually we DO have a decent reserve of bandwidth, but they're owned by the big TV companies, ABC, NBC and the like. Some of you might remember the old TVs with the 'rabbit ear' antenna? Well those were using the same bandwidth as the internet is now. But seeing as no TVs use antennas anymore, the big companies are sitting on them so that when crunch time comes, they will be the only ones with the oil fields that the entire world will beg them to use.
And house hard wiring isn't going to help. Whenever I visit E on my home computer, which is not wireless, the moment my signal hits a booster (as radio waves degrade over distances), it's beamed to another antenna, which might be in say... New York, or California, or wherever then it's bounced around a few more places until it talks to the E servers, then is sent back to my rig, which is then displayed on my shiny new 23" 1080p monitor (
) for me to see. We would need to tear down those signal towers, and the use the cables that rail companies put up (which they actually use a bare minimum of, and rent to the major cable internet companies (yeah, that cellphone? A lot of your bill is dictated by the various railway companies)) years ago, in the 80s.
It's a mess, and one which sadly has no answer yet.
