Online gaming doomed?

With a recent report predicting net gridlock by 2010, US analytical firm Nemertes Research believes that only an investment of hundreds of billions of dollars can save the web from being brought to a near standstill. Could this mean the end of the line for online gaming?

The story is too old to be commented.

look at the UK network, it wasn't that great to begin with.
Our speeds only average aroung 2Mbs when the service provider says things like up to 8Mb....and thats if your lucky.
We can still play on line games fine, but there are times whe the speed gets so low this you have to give up.
let just hope they fix it before it really does become an issue.

Tuttle, and you want to see PS3 owners suffer the same thing Microshaft owners have been for years. If there's no way around it and subsidies must be made in order to improve the infrastructure so be it, but I doubt this is what you had in mind since you don't play PS3! =]

You've got me figured all out.

Some of us don't let everything that we type be influenced by what console we own.

Sounds like the next Y2K bug. I'll believe it when I see it.
