ATT plans 20Mbit/s to your phone in 2009

AppleInsider reports ATT's plans for faster wireless networks. 20Mbit/s in 2009 moving up to 100Mbit/s in subsequent years.

Some parts of the world are already running at these speeds, but this validates my mobile millicomputing story. There is going to be an excess of bandwidth to your pocket. The applications that work out how to leverage that capacity are the ones that will take off over the coming years. Streaming video is obvious, and its all about the price and the variety of content. It's the non-obvious applications that will shape the future.
