The article explains how streaming video affects wireless data networks and fourth generation (4G) networks will not going to solve the problems in the U.S. It offers problems with streaming video on wireless data networks including that it is a bandwidth hog, its dependency on wireless data network's serving radio channel and its impact on network quality of service (QoS). It mentions that streaming video threatens to strangle some third generation (3G) networks.
