The cost of wireless broadband continues to fall and may become a threat to wired broadband, according to a newly published report. The study notes that today’s pricing is such that an average three-person household, which uses approximately 22 GB of broadband per month, could potentially make the switch from wired to wireless without much additional expenditure.
The threat of wireless broadband has yet to materialize, however. Most observers have seen little to no pressure on wired broadband users from wireless broadband companies. In the meanwhile, cable companies will continue to strengthen their positioning in broadband, of course, either by acquiring a wireless operator, or by increasing their investments in Wi-Fi.
