The problem cited is the last 100', not the last mile. 

For ISPs using 60 GHz for the last mile, a wire is ran from the outdoor antenna to the indoor router.

That's unless 802.11ad/.11ay gain in popularity.  60GHz offers lots of

might offer some relief to the noise floor problem. 

So if 60GHz can't get through brick walls, how does the home connect to the ISP PoP?
