i have been hitting kill on this subject.  but i see that good folk are
posting to it.  perhaps the best paper so far on broadband utilization
is that of

    Kenjiro Cho, Kensuke Fukuda, Hiroshi Esaki, & Akira Kato.
    "The Impact and Implications of the Growth in Residential
    User-to-User Traffic."
    SIGCOMM2006, pp207-218. Pisa, Italy. September 2006.

as it is based on measurements in a country with more advanced broadband
deployment than the united states, where the carriers just promise it to
the fcc in order to reinstate a monopoly or very small cartel, it may be
more indicative of out future than our present.
