BANDWIDTH IS A BOTTLENECK FOR THE WORLD’S ECONOMY
REPLACING OLD CORE TECHNOLOGIES WITH REVOLUTIONARY ONES IS THE SOLUTION
The web is quickly running out of bandwidth. Network Service Providers’ immediate response is to charge by the GB, offer different speed lanes, and or prioritize traffic by data type or source. These methods are a way for Network providers to buy time while they attempt to build more infrastructure & invest in next generation Internet technologies. With the end goal to alleviate the constantly building data pressure from humanity’s increasing feature demands, new IoT devices, and developing countries coming online. Net neutrality has little to do with politics, greed, or morality and everything to do with bandwidth quickly becoming a scarce resource.
Corporations in favor of Net Neutrality are rallying the masses to act as their proxy for access to cheap bandwidth. Don’t be fooled this bandwidth issue isn’t political it’s a utilitarian one. Our ever growing demands, real-time features, and coffee machines that report the weather, (IoT), are quickly out pacing our networks’ capabilities. If we continue down this deleterious path, systems that rely on the efficiency and high speed of our networks will suffer to a devastating degree. Such a slow down will bring chaos to the global markets & modern society as new know it. Maybe at first just a nano second than a millisecond then a second. However, the smallest grain of sand adds up to a desert over the course of time. A few seconds of delay can costs billions in profits over the course of a year for a company like Amazon. Any amount of delay across the board can and will bring devastating effects to the global economy. A modern economy & infrastructure depends on a fast web with plenty of cheap bandwidth, we can’t afford to lose it.
