    When it comes to internet connection.. I just think that wireless is too unreliable.

    I'd much rather they improved the hard-wired infrastructure to improve ADSL speeds.

    I don't think the two are mutually exclusive. This is just another step towards making the internet available to everyone, whether that is wirelessly or through the various wired alternatives. I certainly don't think Virgin media or other ISP are going to say "Well, nevermind our wired network which we spent billions developing. We'll let that rot and move to wireless." :p . I think there will always be companies and individuals who prefer the greater speed and reliability achievable through wired networks. However, for your average citizen it makes it that much easier to start crossing the digital divide.

    Since EU is planning to go wireless, why do I have to pay in UK the 5 pounds phone tax, so BT can put broadband exhanges in rich peoples country houses?
