Google is offering webmasters a way to optimize their sites for bandwidth on Apache and Nginx. As the company notes, there are a lot of obstacles on the web when it comes to using less bandwidth, and sites contribute to the problem for a variety of reasons including non-minified code and images that weren’t saved for the web, to name …
Communication technologies including smartphones and laptops could now be 1,000 times faster. A University of Pittsburgh team has generated a frequency comb with more than a 100 terahertz bandwidth as a means to process communications data at a remarkably rapid speed. Many of the communication tools of today rely on the function of light or, more specifically, on applying information …
And the battle against a truly open Internet where service providers do not interfere with the usage rights — look it up in the service contract: long ago, in the BNNN (before no net neutrality) days, an uncapped Internet means you can use as much bandwidth as you please as long as you are a paying customer — continues, and …
News is beginning to circulate that AT&T will implement a 150GB monthly cap on landline DSL, as well as a 250GB cap on subscribers to U-Verse beginning on May 2. Will this affect you and your Internet usage? Let us know your thoughts. DSLReports has learned that AT&T users will start receiving notices, about the change to the terms of …
A new survey of U.S. consumers conducted by International Data Corporation (IDC) finds that consumers have a much different view of broadband access and telecom policy that is at odds with many telecom policy makers.
The majority (94%) of respondents see value in broadband service providers (BSP) that dynamically allocate premium bandwidth for some types of traffic, such as video, VoIP, and gaming.
More bandwidth, not bandwidth manipulation, has been one of the technical solutions offered as an answer to the growing capacity demands of services like VoIP and video. It’s also been used as a rebuttal to telecom industry arguments against Net Neutrality, a rebuttal, um, rebutted in a new study sponsored by…
Richard Whitt, Washington Telecom and Media Counsel Google has put together a three-part blog post outlining Google’s approach to Net Neutrality, what the company feels is okay for broadband providers to do, what’s not okay, and where they have misled the public.
Comcast subscribers are finding out the hard way that excessive bandwidth use could lead to an unexpected termination of service, as well as a subsequent one-year reconnection ban. The kicker, however, is that Comcast refuses to provide any hard data to customers documenting their bandwidth usage.
Taken from the storied pages of the How To Stick It To Your Customers manifesto, Comcast has once again proven that just when you think a company can’t possibly tarnish their public image any further, there’s always a new low that can be achieved.
As I pointed out in a previous article, Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a complex animal.
Designing a disaster recovery system requires planning and consideration of the available options that will best fit your company’s needs, SLA and budget.
Not adhering to web standards is like rollerskating down the freeway. You might get to where you’re going, but it’s inefficient and fraught with peril.
In what some are considering a shot at DSL service providers, Comcast, the nation’s largest broadband provider, has announced they will be increasing the speed of their broadband service.
Before you choose a hosting plan, there are many things to consider. Two of the most important are the Web Server Space and the Data Transfer Allowance (also called bandwidth) that you will need. Web hosts will usually try to lure you with either a large amount of Web Space or monthly Data Transfer Allowance. Though the best case scenario would be to have plenty of both, most hosts tend to offer more of one and less of the other, so you will have to find the right balance.
You already know that affiliate programs are a great way to make additional income for your web business.
Whether your company offers data service to businesses, residential consumers, apartment dwellers, or university faculty and staff the effort required to provide quality data services becomes increasingly complex as you add customers or users. Contention is one of the most significant forces working against your efforts to deliver cost effective quality data services to your customers. Contention forces you to use more and more of your available bandwidth to control who has access to your shared service.
Being multihomed means you have two (or more) routes to any destination connected to the Internet. In other words, you need a way to decide which route is better. When left to its own devices, a BGP router will try to send traffic over the route with the shortest AS path. Depending on the connectivity of your upstream ISPs and traffic patterns, this will suit the available bandwidth of the respective connections to varying degrees. Even though bandwidth is getting cheaper all the time, it’s usually advantageous to try to balance the traffic so that it takes advantage of all the available bandwidth in a multihomed setup. Thus, if BGP decides that most of the outgoing traffic should go through the smallest pipe, you will have to tell it that this isn’t what you want by tweaking one or more BGP attributes. Ideally, more traffic will then flow over the under-used connection. At the same time, you’ll want the traffic to take the best route to a destination, if possible, whatever “best” may be. This type of activity is called traffic engineering
