    BBC will be fine
    What would make you think that?

    Why would the BBC spend the enourmous amount of money required for servers/bandwidth to cope with a seventh wave event?

    And if they have - wouldn't you want someones head on a plate for wasting so much of your money when they've already spent millions on an alternative called televisual broadcasting using COFDM over radio waves

    e.g DTT

    I'd want someone's head on a plate, if they were NOT investing in the NEW broadcast media, whatever the event.

    Don't worry, for all you football-haters......Wimbledon is on next week.....and I bet the Net will be equally well served for that too! (Do you see what I did there? Well-served? Wimbledon? )

    That's correct....but it has been adapted to become the NEW broadcast media.

    And, BBC, ITV et al have to be on top of the game, otherwise they will fall behind and lose out in the battle for online viewers. I think that ITV will have lost this battle already, but the BBC are keeping themselves very much in the game with the amounts that have been invested.
