More Evidence That You Can't Stop That Demand for Bandwidth

VeriSign's Project Apollo to increase their root domain infrastructure to meet a surge in Internet bandwidth of 1,000 is further proof that the future demand for greater bandwidth is real. This and other empirical data is contrary to the results published in the National Broadband Plan and touted by incumbent service providers. Consumers' consumption of more digital content will only increase as they access 3D and high definition content. The tying together of the power and communications infrastructure will consume even more bandwidth. What we are missing is access to greater speeds for the connection to the consumer.
