2 Mbps by 2015?? by then the world will be watching ultra high definition content @ 100Mbps !!!they had the right oppurtunity to bypass 512 this time and straight go for 2Mbps as min. definition of broadband. That would have donea hell lot for real broadband penetration.

There was some speculation that roaming for voice would be done away with. Hope this happens for data as well
