'Experts predict that consumer demand, already growing at 60 per cent a 
year, will start to exceed supply from as early as next year because of more 
people working online and the soaring popularity of bandwidth-hungry 
websites such as YouTube and services such as the BBC’s iPlayer.

It will initially lead to computers being disrupted and going offline for 
several minutes at a time. From 2012, however, PCs and laptops are likely to 
operate at a much reduced speed, rendering the internet an “unreliable toy”.'

(I don't even know where to start.)
