  2. I’ve noticed the talk about HSDPA gaining momentum, so it looks like 2006 will be a new start for 3g service around the world, after a pretty weak existance to date.

  3. I think Brown might be too conservative. I could see services take off at $50 if 2 things happen: you can get that price unbundled from voice and networks are ugraded to support better uplink throughput and better latency. Of course, carriers might prefer to make $70-80/month from voice + data than $50/month from a standalone data plan that supported VoIP, so I can see where Brown is coming from. It’s just that, if carriers keep fighting real 3G the way the ILECs fight naked DSL, they continue to drive the demand for municipal broadband. Greed is only good if you can keep the monopoly.
