That's true to a limited extent today.

It's not likely to remain true.

(No, it won't be the driver typing on their smartphone data connection, but
it will be the busload or high-speed trainload of people typing, gaming, etc.
all the way from SF to LA and/or other non-interactive data usages that are
becoming more and more prevalent.

Further, the speed of handoffs will have to get faster and the address stability
area larger as that starts to include things like airplanes.
