But that (almost non-sensical statement) has NOTHING to do with the article.
The fact that Processor techonology does or doesn't occur at the same rate as Network capacity is also a TOTALLY irrelevent issue.
As far as the article goes, the fact that service providers may LIMIT individual users paying low RESIDENTAL usage rates to daily bandwidth usage "equivalent of 1,000 songs or four feature films a day" is a factor of the COST of bandwidth, not the lack of AVAILABILITY of bandwidth.
The fact is the absolute bandwidth of the Internet CONTINUES to climb as it keeps up with ~ an annual doubling of net traffic and the access to the internet continues to increase both in sites and locations and the connnection speed at each of the acess points continues to climb and the number of active domains = ~ 100 MILLION.http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htmhttp://www.internettrafficreport.com/namerica.htm
So, NO, you have posted NOTHING to support your "prediction".
You gave the proof yourself, internet traffic and websites are expanding at
a tremendous rate. To think that the hardware needed to run the internet is NOT
important or needed and doesn't effect bandwidth efficiency,,,,hmmmm,,,kind of naive don't you think.
Since Comcast hardware cannot handle the demands of its users due to this increase says something about the demands of hardware in relationship to the
business of its user demand and the need for faster cheaper hardware.
The internet runs software that runs on hardware they are intertwined and
are starting to effect the bottom line as internet providers need to keep adding
more and more hardware. Costing more and more money which is passed
along to the customer. Reality sir.
