"At Last, the Web Hits 100 MPH "

"At Last, the Web Hits 100 MPH "

When the Internet showed up mainstream America's horizon in the 1990s, it was heralded with hype about major changes in the way we would live in the near-future. Not much of that materialized and eventually the whole bubble collapsed catastrophically a few years later.

Jim Baller pointed me towards good article in Business Week that makes the point, using concrete examples and statistics, that the U.S. is finally approaching a major "tipping point" in terms of changes in the way we live and do business as a critical mass of Americans finally starts getting fast enough broadband access at home.

(Left unsaid is what happens to the folks that don't have such as access in their communities).
