"SARS drives up demand for teleconferencing equipment"

"SARS drives up demand for teleconferencing equipment "

Another article, this one from Taiwan, describing dramatic increases in videoconferencing use in response to the SARS epidemic. Without videoconferencing, Asian economies would be in much worse trouble.

Videoconferencing requires good broadband connections. If the SARS epidemic hits the U.S. or if we have another 9-11 type incident that restricts down travel in the U.S. for a period of days or weeks, broadband access will be critical to many businesses. Communities, companies and individual workers without good broadband access would be at a severe disadvantage compared to their competitors that have broadband access.
