    Not exactly much progress.
    true - its not much progress but that same rate of progress in the future may be enough to support cloud services. I just think that looking at poor bandwidth in the past and up to today should not be reason enough to discount it in the future.

    Speed is one thing, but you break one cable and everything fails, making the infrastructure as frail as a dumb terminal network, or worse: token ring.

    As for bandwidth, we are severely behind a lot of the rest of the world. A lot of Europe is way ahead of us, and if you're talking about Japan, 100mbs+ to the home for most people.

    I wonder if they're entirely reliant on the cloud? I highly doubt this.
