New technology for super-fast wireless Internet by Starry could destroy traditional cable

Tech Republic reports that a super-fast Gigabit wireless Internet, developed by a startup called Starry from the founders of defrocked Aero, may soon come to some markets, in a story by Conner Forrest, here. The technology would use millimeter waves in the EHF (extremely high frequency) spectrum. The economic model for the service could encourage the ending of data limits, now common on wireless, and could support video and Internet TV.

The product could mean that land-linked cable would eventually become unnecessary.  Is this an existential threat to Comcast?
