Wireless Internet access

Someday high speed wireless access may be everywhere: This article (Just In Case 3G Isn't Speedy Enough) talks about high-speed downlink packet access, also known as 3.5G, which is supposedly capable of 14.4 Mbs. That would be 10 times faster than a T1. Obviously that would be shared bandwidth, so your particular device wouldn't have all that to itself, but it's still a fascinating thought.

Update 2015: Even 4g often isn't all thst fast after all these years 3G vs. 4G
