About this title
Understand what broadband is, why it is the fastest growing consumer media product since the VCR and what it means to you
The fastest-growing consumer media product since the VCR, broadband is a lightning-fast, always-on connection to a world of digitized media content. A technology that transforms the Internet from a dry medium of words and pictures to a multimedia extravaganza. Until recently, high-speed broadband data connectivity was purely the province of corporate America. But now, thanks to an ambitious multi-billion dollar investment by the telecommunications industry, broadband is fast becoming the most influential medium of communications since the telephone.
Planet Broadband helps readers understand the looming era of broadband communications and how they can profit and prosper from its onset. Written in an informal-but-informed voice, it begins with an observation about the broadband age. Each chapter discusses a key element or implication of the broadband era, including references to its historical development, explanations of how it works, and discussions of its influence on various elements of society. The book includes anecdotes, quotations, and interview excerpts from recognizable leaders in business and government that reinforce the subject's importance.About the Author:
