Consumer Broadband Evolution, Not Revolution
from the people-want-it dept
With every politician these days talking about how important it is for the government to stimulate broadband growth, they might want to look at the research. It appears that it’s not the availability of broadband that’s the issue any more. People don’t sign up because they don’t like the price, or they don’t see compelling applications. However, there is clearly pent up demand, as many people say they’re planning to sign up for high speed access in the near future. Online gaming seems like a major driver in convincing people to move to high speed connections. I wonder if the various government proposals include plans to get more companies to create online games? Probably not.
