The problem with wireless is interference & attenuation - at that frequency, everything is impeding the signal - extremely limited signal.

That frequency is significantly higher than anything humans have ever used … mass scale…

To obtain these speeds they had them 1 micrometer apart in a radio noise isolation room deep underground.

If they can get anywhere near what I get with a 1Gbit ethernet connection I would be happy though. Especially for HD video content. I really hope we can get to a stage where we can ditch all the cabling except the power chord (and maybe even that someday).
