The Bandwidth Hurdle

Bandwidth is usually used to express the speed of your Internet connection. For example, my home DSL connection runs at 3 megabits per second (Mbps). This describes the total amount of information that can flow down the connection into my computer. The more you have, the faster your connection.

In my last post I mentioned how the national wireless cloud will eliminate the bandwidth hurdle. Currently, total bandwidth is limited by the physical capacity of the Internet's fiber optic backbone. While this is an enormous number, it is still finite and limited by physical location. So, if you live in an area with lot's of fiber optics, you don't have problems with bandwidth. However, as you move out into rural areas, the availability of high-speed Internet declines dramatically.

With a national wireless cloud broadcasting over the television white space we expand the availability of bandwidth to every corner of the United States. We enable high-speed Internet from everywhere without the need to run fiber optic cables!

This will substantial increase total available Internet bandwidth at a time when bandwidth is becoming more and more of a precious commodity. As more people create, use and share digitial media (audio & video), the need for bandwidth will continue to increase.

How does near unlimited bandwidth change your business? How can you benefit from a massive expansion of your communications capability?
