Just read this news article this morning: with the author referencing his own book at the end which talks about "how America paid over $400 billion and counting, to be the first fully fiber optic-based nation yet ended up 27th in the world for high-speed Internet".
As a Security Integrator myself, I am betting more on better CODECs launching "sooner" and taking over the mass IP Megapixel CCTV market (thus lowering bandwidth requirements for remote live videos); rather than wait for better Broadband Speeds (meaning faster and cheaper cost$$ for end users) to be offered by the local ISP/ nationwide Carriers.
Anybody knows of the state of HEVC/H.265 current development-licensing; are they launching official REAL products this year 2015 ?? so that I can share a little hope in the future with my customers in that they will not have to continue "just-sucking-it-up" regarding sloooow speeds & making low FPS/low resolution sacrifices when viewing IP cameras via their HD-retina display iPads, HD-laptops and HD-smartphones remotely.
