As long as it increases throughput...

That's fine for now, but in 10 years when we've advanced Wavelength-division multiplexing to be able to supply 1TB/s to the home and 1PB/s as the Telco backbone, this new wireless probably won't cut it. Then it won't be as attractive, will it? At the very least the speeds will be years behind what most will be using through a physical connection. It is a sad truth that the fastest connections will always come from a physical medium.
