   By 2010, the average household will be using 1.1 terabytes (roughly
   equal to 1,000 copies of the Encyclopedia Britannica) of bandwidth a
   month, according to an estimate by the Internet Innovation Alliance in
   Washington, D.C. At that level, it says, 20 homes would generate more
   traffic than the entire Internet did in 1995.

How many folks remember InternetMCI's lack of capacity in the 1990's
when it actually needed to stop installing new Internet connections 
because InternetMCI didn't have any more capacity for several months.
