    Experts Warn Internet Is Running Out of Bandwidth

    Experts Warn Internet Is Running Out of Bandwidth


    Internet users face regular "brownouts" that will freeze their computers as capacity runs out in cyberspace, according to research to be published later this year.

    Experts predict that consumer demand, already growing at 60 percent a year, will start to exceed supply as early as 2010 because of more people working online and the soaring popularity of bandwidth-hungry Web sites such as YouTube and services such as the BBC's iPlayer.

    UH OH!
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    YOu know, this is interesting because my computer has been acting up lately, and I have done every virus scan, spyware scan etc, checked our DSL modem etc. It appears to be coming from the server, and I wonder if it is because of this??

    I don't know if this is related, but my cable company's modem has had to be re-set three times in the past two weeks, something that only happened once in six months prior to these incidents.

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.
