Internet to hit it’s “full capacity” by 2010

Doom-filled warnings arrive from AT&T this week.

The company says that without substantial investment in network infrastructure, the Internet will essentially run out of bandwidth in just two short years …

Decades of dealing with the trickle of bandwidth consumed by voice and dialup modems left AT&T twiddling its thumbs.

The massive rise of DSL and cable modem service in the 2000s has had AT&T facing a monstrous increase in the volume of data transmissions … and that’s set to increase another 50 times between now and 2015.

That’s enough, says AT&T, to all but crash the system … Yahoo Tech News

ZDNet reports on this too
