A couple of thoughts come to mind immediately -

1. Privacy/security concerns with all the wireless data floating about. It will be too easy to tap and abuse.

2. I don't think there would be enough spectrum to have wireless broadband in urban areas. It would probably required too many frequency channels to spread the traffic around and still maintain quality of service. Remember, voice channels only require a fraction of the bandwidth of broadband channels (roughly 6KHz vs. 6MHz). Perhaps in rural areas with reduced source/destination pairs, it might make econimic sense.
