Bullshiat scaremongering by the telcos, which are still trying to stop net neutrality. I don't believe a word of it.

I'm really worried the phone companies won't be able to carry Home Shopping Network on my DSL. Should I upgrade my modem?

Where's Al Gore when we need him most?

TFA: given that a minute of video requires 10 times the bandwidth as voice

Does anybody else's brain hurt after reading that?

It's all right, we'll just get some trucks and dump on 'em
 
2007-02-25 01:38:27 PM  
OK, now that we have established that we all think it's bullshiat, anyone got any evidence to back up the calling of the bullshiat for later use?
 
2007-02-25 01:39:09 PM  
So you're all declaring bullshiat because of net neutrality.

Are there any network engineers here - you know, people who work on the actual infrastructure, who can say that this is, indeed, bullshiat? Not talking about your normal IT dude down at the office or the average college student, ok. Though they are mighty useful for other things, this is not something where their declarative statements of "bullshiat" hold much weight.

FTA: "2007 may be the year of the tipping point where growth in capacity cannot cope with use,"

If I read one more article that uses the phrase Tipping Point, I swear I will take an Uzi and fill this here intertubes full of holes.

I for one will increase my video downloads so I'm sure I have enough porn stocked in case of the internets breaking.
 
2007-02-25 01:41:14 PM  
all i remember was putting the Fiber Optic Cable in the ground back about 6 years ago for Level 3, GST, and Sure West. Considering some of that Cable was bigger than numerous parts of my anatomy, i would tend to think the internet is going to be okay.
 
2007-02-25 01:41:31 PM  
I hear cliches use 10 times as much bandwidth as video. But no matter, I for one welcome our new interwebs overlords.
 
2007-02-25 01:41:57 PM  
I think the first 10 comments or so show why there is too much useless crap out there. This post included.

They've been saying this same old crap for at least 10 years that I can remember, probably longer than that.
......

I came in here to say the same thing. First it was when everyone was getting those fancy 56K modems. We were at the brink of disaster, and that fancy ol' Internets was bound for a catastrophic meltdown. Same ol' shiat every time we hit another plateau.
