bandwidth

MercuryNews.com | 06/08/2006 | Start-ups find new ways to move huge data files over Internet:
The overload problem is growing as more people use broadband to download movies, stream TV broadcasts or share amateur videos on sites like YouTube. San Mateo-based YouTube is moving 200 terabytes a day alone -- more than eBay, the world's largest online auction company, eBay.


I guess the bottleneck has moved from the consumer to the content providers. Is it really that big an issue? The Adult market has been around for years, I never heard them complain. If the Adult Content companies survived, I doubt others are going to have problems. They've just got to be smart about it. Perhaps their aren't that many people that consume Adult Content? (yeah right!)

Wouldn't it be cool if we could remove the content provider bottleneck. Ofcourse the bottleneck is only their for streaming not downloading (bittorrent).
