Re: Seems like old times

Well-thought-out post, thanks.

Interesting how we keep coming back to the same things over and over again. Providers build networks "wway back when" and hope to reap enormous, increasing profits on those networks for years to come. Time moves on and people get closer to using advertised services, which causes oversubscription built into the network to fail. Communications companies, forced to provide more infrastructure (and forced to realize they're infrastructure companies), start crying.

Why anyone's pointing to Google though I'm not sure. That company doesn't have very many high-bandwidth applications, compared with online video providers. YouTube is the ony one, and YT isn't particularly high-quality...
