Broadband To Overtake TV

Interesting:
WITHIN THE NEXT THREE YEARS, more than 16 million U.S. households with televisions will use their broadband service more than they use their TV sets today, says technology consulting firm In-Stat.

Up to 30% of viewers will drop subscription TV and use the Internet for watching TV, according to a recent survey by the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based In-Stat. More than 40% say they aren't getting enough international news and information from their current TV service, despite having hundreds of channels to choose from.

Now that's much quicker than I would have thought...at least without real, reliable broadband. On the other hand: where there is real, reliable broadband.......;-)

Anono,

Now what "cable act" are you talking about?

My guess is that where you see contradiction I see continuity.

I'm pretty much always for the local community over big government or big business.

Care to explain your thinking?
