It's alright that for higher bandwidths wired will remain a better medium.

For personal use I am content with less than 1mbps (say 512-750kbps etc)
as long as it is consistent.

I think wireless should be capable of providing that much of speed
reliably. They advertise speeds "up to" 3.1mbps (CDMA) and 7.1mbps (3G),
though one doesn't even get 50kbps reliably - at least so with bsnl 3g.
(Haven't tried others.)

I think it's due to indiscriminately adding customers without capacity
planning or any control on QoS on the ISP's part.
