TRACK TWO: IT TECHNICAL HORIZON
Caution! Network Traffic Jam?
A very big drawback to NCs could be the narrow band access now provided
by modems, and the basic ISDN rates. We know from experience the Internet
easily bogs down at these rates. Can cable modems with proposed data access
speeds of only about 10 Mbps provide the path for NC acceptance and growth?
In this session we will try to get around the many ramifications of a massive
Internet traffic jam, and look at the possible alternate route solutions
to this international problem.
