Why that crazy-fast home Internet replacement may be too good to be true

From complications related to the radio airwaves it will use to the cost of deploying the network, there are many reasons why Starry has its share of skeptics. A tiny startup made a big splash this week by pledging to deliver a wireless Internet service fast enough to replace your home broadband connection. starry-internet-deployment.png Starry is taking on cable broadband with a wireless service that promises to deliver 1 gigabit per second downloads.

Starry, a company based in New York and Boston, on Wednesday unveiled a 1-gigabit Internet serviceunveiled a 1-gigabit Internet service, which will launch with a trial in Boston over the summer. That's about 10 times faster than the average home Internet connection and speedy enough to let you download a two-hour high-definition movie in 25 seconds. If the promise holds true, Starry could offer you a viable, potentially superior, alternative to the broadband service provided by your local phone or cable provider. The company believes it can undercut traditional broadband providers because it doesn't have to dig up streets to install physical lines. It would bring much needed competition and higher speeds.
