The more interesting controversy is that if we're really wildly successful we'll make DSL irrelevent as our network will be a more efficient last mile solution for delivering bulk purchased bandwidth to urban consumers.

Have you heard any rumblings on how they (ISPs) plan to compete with you if this happens?

If we're successful I suspect that there'll be some issues, some regulatory struggles, but ultimately I suspect the ISPs will be glad that they don't have to support the unprofitable last mile anymore. Selling bulk bandwidth for the long haul, providing cross town wired links to join together distant parts of the wireless network, and providing server infrasructure are all far more profitable activities for ISPs than providing DSL or cable modems.
