Are limited upload speeds choking Web 2.0?

Not much we can do at WN to change our d/l or u/l speeds, but interesting none the less--

From Ars Technica:

"...few broadband connections in the US are symmetric; uploading and downloading occur at different speeds. AT&T's DSL, for instance, offers up to 1.5Mbps for $19.99 a month, but that only comes with 384Kbps of upload speed. Even superfast connections like Comcast's 8Mbps links are still stuck in the 768Kbps tar pits when it comes to upload speeds. It's a minor inconvenience to some, but a big deal to others..."

I'd blame porn freaks more for causing internet slow downs! PERVERTS!

Web 2.0 applications will put the "BIG BOY" software corporations out of business (except web browser and OS suppliers) the way things are going!

Search for more Web 2.0 stuff on ;)

more like skateboard crash videos from YouTube and baby pix from 4 MegaPixel cameras hogging b/w.-- but that's mostly the ISP-to-internet c/x- its the last mile link this post was about.
