The latest, as pointed out by Broadband Reports is even more damning. Someone decided to do a little digging further into the Deloitte & Touche report, and while D&T wouldn't provide any more details about their predictions, the reporter went straight to the folks who manage the systems D&T predicted would run into trouble -- and those people flat out denied that they're going to run into any capacity problems any time soon. Basically, capacity keeps growing and even though usage is growing faster than capacity right now, there's plenty of room to spare, and plenty of time to increase capacity should things look like they're getting tight. So, basically, the reports of the internet's impending destruction due to things like YouTube or net neutrality supporters has been greatly exaggerated.
