Critical mass is approaching. There's only so long that North
American consumers can be held back from bandwidth-hogging
applications and downloads while parts of the world have long since
upgraded to 10Mbit/s bidirectional (and beyond) consumer-grade access
Both cable and DSL providers are about to have a very loud wake-up
call, and from here, I see absolutely zero uptake of newer technology
and infrastructure to offset the inevitable.
