Broadband access to the Internet may be getting cheaper, but at a price: speed. Read the CNN.com article.
As the article says, e-mail users will be happy with this speed, as will most casual web surfers, for now. ‘Throttling’ bandwidth also helps ISPs manage their networks my reducing stress on the system.
But I’ll never accept a step down. I’ve had high speed access, but frankly, it’s not that fast. There’s plenty of room for improvement. Let’s hope the ISPs continue to compete and innovate.
