Internet to Reach Full Capacity by 2012?
The number of Internet users is constantly growing and little thought has been given to the potential capacity of the Internet network. There has been a lot of speculation that the current Internet architecture will reach the limits of its capacity by 2012. It has been stated that Internet may not be able to cope with the increasing amounts of video content on the Internet. Videos amount to 40% of today’s traffic, but by 2012 it is estimated that it will be a lot higher number. To remedy the situation, a lot of money is needed to invest in a new infrastructure. While many Internet users are worried about the current situation, I think that as long as companies invest money in to maintain their network, there should not be any problems.
