Speaking at the eForum on Web 2.0, Jim Cicconi, vice president of legislative affairs for AT&T claimed that the Internet as we know it will collapse in 2010. The infrastructure simply cannot cope with the amount of date being transferred. Remember - it's a series of tubes.
Who is to blame? Actually that is the question and the answer. According to Tiscali - the BBC's iPlayer is a major drain on the bandwidth. So blame Dr Who.
The other drain on bandwidth is the increasing demand for HD videos. HD takes up 7 to 10 times the bandwidth of normal low res-web video.
So next time you watch a crystal clear video of a kitten falling down, you're definitely killing the Internet. Experts say so.
