Mike, I would say there is definetly room for discussion about that topic. Today as we speak you can get cable modems with access speed in the 200-300bps range. Mini dish systems will give you access in the 200-400bps range.

Although today mini dishes are more expensive to set up, I believe the next couple of years you will see the prices change pretty dramatically-after all, the mini dish industry is relatively young.

Unfiltered competition and economies of scale are sure to bring the hardware down significantly in price.

The other possible scenario is that people like Bill Gates will buy all those lazy cable companies, and run them like a real competitive organization.
