Andrew Viterbi suggested that broadband wireless has a smaller potential market than estimated: He co-founded Qualcomm, and doesn’t believe the applications merit bandwidth beyond what’s currently be rolled out. The prices would make it prohibitive. It’s unclear from the reportage whether he was speaking generally or just about mobile broadband, although the latter seems likely.

Oh, yeh?! Sure, we don't need broadband, let's stay with CDMA networks so that Qualcomm will continue with 75% profit margins.
This is nothing but a political statement. The industry will move to the new standards and they will not be CDMA based. If not for the network capacity, at least for the benefit of not paying royalties to Mr Viterbi
