Ten years ago most of used the net for usenet, e-mail and browsing was in the main text with a few pictures.
Today the internet is a much richer in terms of content, and video is a big part of this, anyone for YouTube?
However will this growth in video be the death of the internet?
The BBC reports on this very issue:
There is no doubt that video is big on the net. But is it getting too big?
Ask AT&T and it will answer – yes.
Speaking in London in late April, Jim Cicconi, AT&T’s vice president of legal affairs, said the burgeoning amount of video would consume all the net’s bandwidth in two years.
So will the interent collapse under the weight of a new richer internet, well I think not!
