Could TV on the web crash the backbone?

February 8, 2007

Interesting article about the possibility of services like YouTube and Joost proving too intensive on the internet’s infrastructure. This could be a real concern for ISP’s everywhere, these services are only going to get more popular and Joost is still in beta. As they increase penetration the load on the backbone could get to a point where traffic and transfer speeds are affected.

Add into the mix the coming on-demand services from TV companies and more and more movie and music download sites and things could begin to get sticky.

Time for the backbone providers to get together and ensure they can cope with the demand!
