Net grows to meet fresh demands
The BBC reports on a Deloitte study that claims 2007 could be the year the “internet approaches capacity, with demand outstripping supply. It predicted bottlenecks in some of the net’s backbones as the amount of data overwhelms the size of the pipes.” The article quotes Google’s head of TV technology who said “the web could not scale to meet surges in demand and so could not deliver a good experience. The article notes the increase in supply will largely be caused by the demand for mobile phones, net telephony and TV, and also notes investment by VeriSign, among others, to improve bandwidth.
