From today's NY Times: In a widely cited report published last November, a research firm projected that user demand for the Internet could outpace network capacity by 2011. But the Internet traffic surge represents more a looming challenge than an impending catastrophe. Even those most concerned are not predicting a lights-out Internet crash. An individual user, they say, would experience Internet clogging in the form of sluggish download speeds and frustration with data-heavy services that become much less useful or enjoyable. âThe Internet doesnât collapse, but there would be a growing class of stuff you just canât do online,â said Johna Till Johnson, president of Nemertes Research, which predicted the bandwidth squeeze by 2011, anticipating that demand will grow by 100 percent or more a year. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/13/t...&ex=1206072000&partner=MYWAY&pagewanted=print Without smooth running fast streaming quotes, trading via the net would not be possible.
