The coming broadband traffic jam

Two former assistant secretaries of commerce -- one from the Bush administration and the other from the Clinton administration -- warn of a coming digital deluge that threatens to clog the Internet.

Point well taken. Many Americans get broadband over twisted copper cable designed for the pre-Internet era. Even the relatively bigger pipe offered by the cable providers may max out soon without additional bandwidth. Finally, there are millions of Americans still stuck on the dirt roads of dial up, unable to reach the broadband highway.
