I don’t know about this stuff:
A couple of things are pretty clear: One of is that what we call broadband today isn’t going to be broadband tomorrow. It’s not just a matter of speed; it’s a matter of symmetry. A lot of the broadband services are asymmetric, which means you can’t do things you might want to do. If you look at BitTorrent, which is one of today’s most popular and demanding applications for exchanging large files, you’ll see that it’s symmetric in its use of the network.
BitTorrent is mainly used for theft of copyright material, so I’m not completely convinced that it legitimately demands a re-wiring of America.
