oops ;) my point wasn't that bandwidth wasn't necessary over X
So, there was a time when everyone said 'good grief, what would
anyone do with 1.5mbps', and where in turn engineered bitrates ended
up being several orders of magnitude lower. In fact, we all were
worried what would happen to our POPs and backbone when 1.5mbps
consumers showed up in volume back in the '98 timeframe.
was that the main motivator for consumer purchase was no long
but price alone.
Sorry for the confusion.
But, seriously, if all that emerged and mattered today is 'value
brand', isn't it just indicative of the fact that consumers just
haven't found the next cool bw annihilating thing yet? I doubt this
is part of a general trend, unless this industry has reached a mature
plateau. (which would be very sad, imho).
