Broadband. It is the fastest-growing consumer media product since the VCR. Broadband is a lightning-fast, always-on connection to a world of digitized media content. It is a technology that transforms the Internet from a dry medium of words and pictures to a multimedia pipeline that delivers television shows on-demand, transports you to a school halfway across the globe, and saves your business millions while improving productivity. As people around the world become wired for broadband, we're beginning to see the dramatic impact broadband has on how we live, learn, work, and play in the post-industrial era.
Planet Broadband is a breakthrough book that goes beyond jargon-laden technical manuals to describe not just what broadband is but why broadband matters to everyday people. Learn how broadband connectivity can help solve some of the vexing environmental and social problems confronting us today, while improving our lives.
