Uh, no. IPv6 is just a different way of naming computers (or gateways) on networks. It will not bring down the overhead. A 100mb file will still be a 100mb file.

AT+T handles the physical media (cables) within the US, but not the entire world.

In networking terms, a "backbone" refers to a main segment, usually a cable, where the majority of terminals are connected. The problem is, government officials and senators aren't aren't going to be as tech savvy as your tyical IT professional.

dont think you guys are seeing the real problem here, no band' means no streaming porn!
j.k

The real issue is that the gov' will blame the ISP's and the ISP's willl blame the gov' and then there will be limitations and what not, an excuse to control p2p band in exchange for other kinds of traffic...

buracrats sitting on their asses and doing nothing is whats "killing" everything, many things need to get done already, but they argue so much about which one needs to go first that nothing get done eventually, and the sad thing is that none of them really cares, but their endorsers do so they champion a cause even if it's pointless to the public.....

Remember the article a while back on the cost of fiber optics to every home- Yeah, thats what needs to happen.

Within the next 20 or so years, all of our infrastructure will need to be replaced. I am referring to bridges, municipal water, and roads. There is an article about the expected lifespan of them, I am just to lazy to go find it. Thats why there is google.

Well, all the roadways, bridges and etc are replaced continually. It's not one lump replacement every 20 some years.

same with data communications and telecomm, its a continuous upgrading process.

You guys all know that the internet was once just phone wires, right?
And it all magically turned into fiber overnight?! No... Its a gradual process, much like the growing of an inter-state highway structure in the US, its constantly in a state of repair/upgrade (just not the entire thing at once)

There is no numerical limit to the amount of bandwidth 'the internet' can hold, since the internet is made up of billions of connections. The only real problem is that the entire WWW runs off a couple handfuls (15 I think?) of DNS servers. These 'backbones' of the WWW are highly targeted and vulnerable systems.

The speed of home-users is not the cause, its an effect. There are larger and wider WANs at work on the internet - all more complex than most people could even fathom. As these corporate and industrial connections become faster, the speed trickles down to the home user. Thus the basis of this article is bogus and ass-backwards.

I really just hope the internet stays free and bull**** like net-neutrality and pay-per-byte keep getting shut down, the last thing I need is for the internet to be as watered down as modern-day television ;__________;

The internet providers are the only companies I have ever heard of that complains about having to expand their business. Most companies would be over joyed to have enough new customers and business to warrant expanding. The internet will only get bigger and more and more people will be using it every day. That sounds like a sound investment to me. Idiots.

On the topic of the internet collapsing, I'm more worried about us running out of ipv4 soon. IP numbers are quickly dwindling with no real plan to move to ipv6 or any other options. I guess we are waiting until the last minute and people are selling their extra ip numbers for insane prices before there is enough motivation to actually getting around to fixing the problem.

no, IPV6 will likely add overhead. for starters it's two more bytes of address space per peacket. secondly the software (or hardware) on each end that processes packets will have 33% bigger addresses to process and route. this is assuming they don't do anything stupid to the new packet structure... I wouldn't be surprised if they find some other crap to add into each packet. I've yet to ever see a revision to anything that reduces overhead or bandwidth.
