On funsec we have had a discussion on broadband providers and bandwidth
limitations, pretty much what we rehearsed here.

Critical mass is approaching. There's only so long that North American consumers can be held back from bandwidth-hogging applications and downloads while parts of the world have long since upgraded to 10Mbit/s bidirectional (and beyond) consumer-grade access speeds.

Both cable and DSL providers are about to have a very loud wake-up
call, and from here, I see absolutely zero uptake of newer technology
and infrastructure to offset the inevitable.
