The Internet as we know it took 30 years to come to everybody, and it was providing something that essentially wasn't provided before. Internet2 provides the same thing, only faster; so why do we believe it will replace the existing solution *EVER*, much less in a shorter time frame than 30 years? The Internet is going to be with us for a very long time. Emphasis should be on fixing it, not replacing it.
