    The average subscriber probably have no more than 2 GB in their monthly data cap. So if you were actually able to hit your max speed, you would max out your data plan in less than 4 seconds.
    I think the focus needs to be bring down the cost of data transfer to the end consumer.

    By the time it is deployed, we should have our phones nuclear-powered and have at least 4K resolution on them.

    4k yes. Nuclear? No way. We don't need people making pocket sized dirty bombs.

    Not just that, but no one wants to run the risk of having an isotope in their pocket that can cause cancer xD.
