The Future of Internet Economics
Technology Policy Institute
8:30 am - 12:00 pm
June 15, 2012
Internet data traffic growth shows no signs of slowing anytime soon and peak traffic is projected to grow even faster due to many factors, including growth in video and cloud-based services and richer content on major websites. The changing nature of demand for bandwidth has potentially large implications for our communications landscape. For example, it may already be straining long-standing peering and transit agreements as traditional balances of traffic change and is increasingly testing the viability of the traditional "all-you-can-eat" broadband pricing models.
"The Future of Internet Economics" will highlight existing research on the economics of broadband and will address such topics as how changing bandwidth consumption patterns could impact future business models, how such changes could affect content creation, and what role, if any, the government should play as the industry grapples with these changes.
