“While you are concerned about fiber, listen, you better be thinking about fixed wireless. 500,000 net adds in the first quarter alone. The other interesting thing about the data on fixed wireless, Verizon broke it out by consumer and business… right now, 50% of their fixed wireless are businesses. so don’t just think about this as a low-end consumer product. And remember what they’re also doing is combining this with their mobile offer. So if you’re a Verizon mobile subscriber, you can get this for $25. This is for real, don’t ignore it. I was ignoring it. It exists.”
