Sandvine and Lightreading are making my point…

When I wrote about waiting on the coming exaflood, one of my conclusions is that fixed broadband connections are going to face usage caps just like a wireless broadband connection.  The more you use, the more you will pay.  Apparently Lightreading.com has come to this conclusion as well and it is courtesy of Sandvine and their internet traffic report.  Here are the two relevant charts in my opinion.  Chart 1 and Chart 2.  The rise of real time traffic is what I was referring to on Friday’s post about “…persistent network connections like Gmail, Facebook, applications, non-streaming content, games, etc are changing the rules as to how content is stored and handled.”
