Not sure it has a chance in heck, but the bona-fides are there early users report great success.  We'll see.

While this might solve phone to tower problems, doesn't it just move the bandwidth problem over to the tower itself? How could the bandwidth allocated to a tower's internet connection handle all this new demand?

As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. - Hunter S. Thompson, 1958, from cover letter he wrote for a newspaper job.

You're on the money of the possible consequence. But that's a feature, but a bug. You want to move the bottleneck out of the final feet, from the devices, and back closer to major network node. You can then bring large scale bandwidth upgrades to the infrastructure, as needed.This could help the available bandwidth be more efficiently used. I'll wager than the typical user wants small bursts of data, for email Facebook, Twitter, maps. They want a little sip, really fast. By increasing speed to each user, each little sip of data can happen instantaneously, and the little sips all interleaved to make better use of the towers' bandwidth. The interleaving could be staggerd slightly-response to a user delayed by a millisecond to optimize tower bandwidth, but unnoticeable to the user. This will be a better experience overall than lots of users all getting slow trickles of data simultaneously, and everyone inefficiently unhappy.

I don't know that that's true.I think as mobile becomes more ubiquitous people want video there even more.

It's growing. And this bandwidth is needed for that.But think of the vast number of people who at a given moment are just checking email and Facebook quickly. All the little updates happening in the background.Regardless, even if I'm totally wrong on that...moving the bottleneck upstream is a good thing :)
