Gary, the experience of multiple gigabits flowing through your handheld, tv, laptop, gamestation, wearable, or other device is as transformative as going from dialup to DSL was. Today's "broadband" may be retired by the next gen of faster throughput, as 4K video (linear and non-) becomes the default and quadruples the size of everything piped to one of our screens or from one of our cameras. So I'd be looking at the rates of adoption of 1mb, 10mb, 100mb, 10000mb wired broadband as nearly separate products and markets. 100 pct penetration of the 1mb market still leaves plenty of growth for the 100mb, 1gb, and 10gb markets.

I'd be asking, how will last mile providers confront the radical abandonment of bundled television in favor of providers selling directly to consumers a la CBS, Netflix, HBO and Amazon? They survived the market's abandonment of wired voice by throwing it in for free with tv and data. What happens when neither TV nor voice are bringing in yesterday's cashflow?
