In fact, we all were worried what would happen to our POPs and backbone when 1.5mbps consumers showed up in volume back in the '98 timeframe.
But, seriously, if all that emerged and mattered today is 'value brand', isn't it just indicative of the fact that consumers just haven't found the next cool bw annihilating thing yet?
